“The perfect place under the Umbrian sun!”
Reviewed 11 July 2013

A wonderful, authentic Umbrian place to stay; great views, out of this world pool, wonderful and hospitable hosts who gave us great local tips and ensured our day trips were 10 out of 10. We were made to feel that our accommodation was home from home thank you Sarah and Sal, you provide an outstanding level of accommodation and the best yummy pizza's fresh from your wood-fired oven!

We have just returned from the most enjoyable and relaxing week's holiday at this fantastic B&B set high in the Umbrian countryside. The weather was excellent and we made full use of the lovely infinity pool.Sarah and Salvatore are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. Sarah is a mine of local information on where to go, what to see and where to eat, even down to booking restaurants and arranging taxis.Sal's piazza night is a must! A big thank you to you both,and a big hug for Rosa and we will see you again.

We have just returned from spending a wonderful five nights at La Cuccagna with our 3month old baby, and already thinking about when we will return.

Sarah and Sal are the perfect hosts, striking the balance between being warm & friendly and thoroughly professional. Each morning, Sarah gives guests tailored recommendations on where to go and what to see. Nothing is too much to ask, and both were brilliant at accommodating our baby & anticipating his needs.

The pool is a highlight with spectacular panoramic views. The accommodation is simple but comfortable and clean. The grounds are very pretty with trees laden with cherries during our stay. The sunsets were beautiful.

The only downside for us was having to drive out for our evening meal with il bambino, although Sarah and Sal were very happy for us to have picnic suppers on the terrace. Next time, we would probably opt to stay in 'La Stalleta' (the cowshed). Sal & Sarah did mention plans to build a small restaurant though, which would be another big draw if Sal's pizzas were anything to go by!

Other guests were returning visitors to La Cuccagna which says it all. We certainly want to go back and will be recommending the place to friends and family.

Many thanks for such a lovely review.

We are always so pleased to hear how much guests have enjoyed their holidays. You were an absolute pleasure to host and you have the most perfect baby - not a peep from him during your entire stay and he really seemed to enjoy his dips in the pool.

It was lovely to meet you and we hope to see you again soon.

Best wishes,

Wonderful stay at La Cuccagna last week - I almost don't want to say how good it is for fear I won't be able to get in next time! Truly fantastic - stunning setting, so easy to get to via Perugia (thanks to excellent directions from Sarah), wonderful hosts Sarah and Sal who do everything to help and yet never intrude - a hard balance to strike and they manage it perfectly. True relaxation.

A countryside villa with beautiful infinity pool are the first sight of this lovely B&B / self catering private home in Umbria, near Perugia and Gubbio, then the pretty garden path with herbs planted and roses in the garden. Guest accommodation is separate from the main house and nicely situated off a stunning vista. Each room is large with a nice bathroom, cleanliness and comfy beds are key here and a healthy breakfast greets you each morning, hosted by Sarah, owner of the Villa with husband Salvatore. A great couple, combining English / Italian - fantastic restaurant and local places to visit oracles - great friends with their surrounding contemporaries and therefore you are able to appreciate the best their local part of Umbria has to offer. Take in local places of interest in nearby Perugia, Gubbio, Assisi, Spello, Narni and not far away is Lake Trasimeno leading to the Tuscan gateway of Cortona and a little further Siena and Florence, only 2 hours from Rome. La Cuccagna is a great base to stay with an amazing pool, good amenities, excellent hosts and super Pizza evenings :0) we thoroughly enjoyed our stay alternating days out with days by the pool and felt at home. Thank you Sarah and Salvatore.

Room Tip: Good shower & very comfy bed.

We have just spent an amazing week at La Cuccagna with my son, daughter-in-law, her parents, grandson and husband. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Sarah and Salvatore are the best hosts and made the holiday one of the best we have had. The accommodation is clean and comfortable and the pizza night is definitely not to be missed.
Thank you Sarah and Salatore for a lovely holiday and a hug for your lovely daughter, Rosa.

We have just returned from our second visit to La Cuccagna with Sal & Sarah!

We flew to Rome which was a much better journey than Bologna with beautiful scenery for the entire trip &it was so easy!

We arrived at La Cuccagna with both sets of Parents (one of which came with us last year) & our toddler! Upon arriving we were greeted by Sal & Sarah as if we had only seen them last week & not that a whole year had passed since our last visit, hugs & kisses were exchanged like old friends!

The parents were taken to the main house for tea & coffee whilst checking in whilst my husband & I bundled into La Stalletta & made ourselves completely at home! The fridge was stocked with fruit, apple juice, coffee & milk & the shelves were full of tea, sugar, salt & pepper. We had stopped at Mary's store in Casa Del Diavolo on our way so were we perfectly prepared for our first few evenings.

The pool & views were just as amazing & beautiful as we remembered last year & my MIL was silenced by how wonderful it was, especially as they wanted a calm & tranquil holiday!

Sarah is still a wonderful source of information & nothing is too much trouble. She arranged for us to visit many restaurants during our stay & gave us perfect directions each time. Sal's home made Pizza night was excellent & very enjoyable with the other guests who were all so very nice.

We had some wonderful weather however going to La Cuccagna is not about weather for us, it is about the relaxation, the food, the wine & the company!

I can't recommend La Cuccagna enough, it truly is a beautiful place, with gorgeous views, a fantastic family to welcome & look after you & who want you to enjoy every minute of your time there & experience the Umbrian way of life!

Needless to say we have already booked our return visit for 2014! Let the countdown begin! Only 365 days to go, which is far too long!

Thank you Sal & Sarah for such a lovely week xxxxx
