Traditionally built La Cuccagna is set in the heart of the Umbrian countryside between Perugia and Gubbio. Owners Sarah and Salvatore have painstakingly restored the farmhouse into a charming boutique property, with 4 rooms (including 1 suite) in the main building, an independent B&B apartment, and La Stalletta, a self-catering cottage for two in the old cow shed. Exposed beams, thick stone walls and wooden lintels are just some of the original features that still remain. This is a stylish and affordable place to stay, perfectly positioned for exploring the cultural and historical villages of Umbria and neighbouring Tuscany.
The dining room at La Cuccagna is the place for a delicious breakfast (included for all guests apart from those staying in La Stalletta which is self-catering. Daily homemade lunches are also offered, and traditional homely dinners twice a week.
Salvatore has his own stone oven and hosts pizza evenings – a big hit with everyone. And there are several restaurants within easy reach; Sarah and Salvatore can make bookings and recommendations for you.
The entire ground floor of the main farmhouse has been designed to house three comfortable bed and breakfast rooms and one suite. Sarah and Salvatore live on the first floor but are very mindful of your privacy, and the two levels are completely separate, each with their own entrance. All rooms are either double or twin and all are en-suite. Two bedrooms have a pull out bed if required for a third person or child. They all share a lovely living area as well as a spacious outdoor terrace with a shaded pergola and far-reaching views.
La Stalletta (the old cow shed) sleeps 2 (with the possibility of 1 extra) and has an open-plan kitchen, a living area, a double bedroom, and a bathroom. It also boasts a capacious terrace with a pergola – perfect for dining alfresco. Contemporary La Cisterna is an independent 2-storey apartment with all the same amenities as the B&B, but more space, a simple kitchenette, and a luxury bathroom – the ideal bolthole for a couple, or a family with one or two children who can sleep on the comfy sofabed.
The infinity pool is big enough for those wanting to keep up their lengths, and is positioned to make the most of the views of the Umbrian hills. Surrounded by 11 acres of countryside and seasonal produce such as fennel, porcini and asparagus, La Cuccagna embraces the wonders of nature. Pasta-making courses and truffle hunting can be organised.
The pool area and garden have been landscaped and planted with olive trees, vines, fruit trees and herbs, and a poolside therapeutic infrared sauna has also been added.
