This review is for the bed and breakfast at Agriturismo Il Cucco. If you are looking for a review of the restaurant located within this B&B, then do a search for "Il Cucco" instead.
The location of this B&B is pretty good. You definitely need a car though. As it is a farm, it is not in the city or anything like that. But it is only about a 5 minute drive to get on to the autostrade for quick access to other cities.
My wife and I stayed in the "Gelosia" room, which had a double bed and private bathroom. The bedroom was quite spacious. Besides the bed, there was a large cabinet, a small desk, and a little sofa. There was also lots of floor space to put our luggage on. And the room also had an air conditioner which was nice.
The bathroom was a bit lacking. It was quite small relative to the bedroom. The mirror over the sink was very old and appeared to be somewhat rusted, although there was a newer mirror hanging on the bathroom door. I think the plumbing in the place must be old because when one person is taking a shower and the other person turns on the cold water at the sink, the shower turns scalding hot. I think this is just the way things are in older places though. Not a big deal.
The room is cleaned for you daily which is nice.
The wifi, although free, is incredibly slow. It felt like I was using a 28k modem or maybe even slower. Not sure if it's maybe because the place is located in more of a rural area?
Truthfully, if I were to rate this place only based on the room itself, I might not have rated it so highly. It's not bad by any means, but it's no luxury hotel. And I don't think it's trying to be. It's a farmhouse B&B, pure and simple.
That being said, I'm giving it 4/5 because the overall experience was indeed very good, largely in part to the owners, Angelo and Alessandra, and their staff. They are just so warm, kind, and friendly; and they really make you feel welcome and valued as guests.
Breakfast is included and they have a nice variety of their fresh breads, organic yogurt, fruits, juices, etc. available.
Also, note that as a guest of the B&B, when you eat at the restaurant, there is no cover charge for you. And you always have the option of a discounted tasting menu.
And speaking of the restaurant, you would be a fool to stay here and not eat at the restaurant. Check out my review for the "Il Cucco" restaurant which features Alessandra's fine home cooking.
Angelo and Alessandra, thank you for a very pleasant stay at Agriturismo Il Cucco!
