A wonderful week of weather

We have just enjoyed the most wonderful week of weather and the spring blossoms have been just beautiful – the fruit trees are flowering in pink and white, the rosemary a wonderful blue, the futinias are a vibrant, firery red and the more ‘wild’ parts of the garden are a carpet of bright yellow, vivid blue and violet where the weeds are flowering!  The herbs are flourishing, the olive trees just about flowering and buds are beginning to appear on the roses and holm oaks.

The scent of the wild fennel and mint are so aromatic as you walk by. We’re hoping for a bumper crop from the cherry and apricot trees later in the Spring to be able to make lots of our delicious homemade jam for breakfast in the mornings.  To enjoy the tastes of La Cuccagna come and enjoy a stay with us,

Website Relaunch

Although we live in the depths of the Umbrian countryside we are very conscious that times and technology are moving fast and to keep pace we are pleased to announce the re-launch of our website . We have kept the same look and feel of the site as most guests have given us such positive feedback but thanks to Barry Jones at we are now ‘enabled’ to be easily viewed on all the latest technology platforms.

We also have a new page ‘Special Stays’ which provides you with a little more information on some of the many things that are possible to enjoy while you are with us at La Cuccagna.

And finally at long last we are very happy to have the site in Italian for all of you who would prefer to read about us in our local language!
