Our horizon swimming pool is long enough for your morning exercise or for just cooling off, chilling and enjoying the breathtaking views. The infinity edge drops off into the beauty of the Umbrian Hills, so you can imagine the feeling of being part of this majestic country.
La Cuccagna is set in more than 11 acres of rural Italian countryside abundant in seasonal delights such as wild asparagus, fennel and truffles. The pool area and garden have been landscaped and planted with a number of majestic old olive trees, vines, fruit trees and our own steady supply of fresh herbs.
You are free to explore our grounds and discover the wonders of nature at first hand or you could sit down, relax and enjoy the view in one of the many areas we have created for your comfort. Imagine yourself with a good book or a glass of Italian red in hand.
Stone Baked Oven
We have built a traditional stone oven where Salvatore makes the most delicious bread and pizza for our guests. Don’t miss our weekly ‘Pizza Night’, where you can dine straight from the oven under the stars on the veranda.
For your convenience, we also have a built in BBQ which self catering guests are free to use during your stay. If you don’t fancy cooking yourself, BBQ nights are available on request.
Restaurants & Local Shopping
We are lucky to have some excellent restaurants within easy distance of La Cuccagna, without the need to go into town, which offer a variety of local cuisine and authentic or unique ‘dining experiences’. They’re our little secrets and we let you know about them when you arrive.
The local village has a wonderful little general store, a butcher and several grocers for all you immediate requirements, as well as the weekly markets in Gubbio and Perugia. We also have an organic delivery van that comes right to our door once a week with fresh, local, seasonal fruit and veg.
We offer a well stocked honesty bar and laundry service on-site. Additional services that can be arranged include ‘at home’ dining and wine-tastings, massage therapist, sporting activities and pasta making courses.
