Umbria, Italy

Panoramas stretch to Tuscany; paths trace olives, cherries, herbs. Relish home-grown veg, infinity pool, Sal's limoncello, utter peace...

Read guest comments

A big, solid, traditional style farmhouse – meticulously restored after the Assisi earthquake – with chestnut windows, shutters, doors, and achingly beautiful panoramas across wooded hills, farmland, olive groves and the odd tower-topped hamlet; you feel on top of the world. Paved paths lead through old olive and cherry trees, lavender and herbs (plus a little veg patch for guests to raid) to a hammock, pergola and exquisitely sited infinity pool. The cowshed cottage is cosy, the bedrooms in the farmhouse are simple and spare, with their tiled floors, beamed ceilings, locally made fabrics and ceramics, and 'memory foam' mattresses to ensure deep sleep. Everywhere, lots of child-friendly space. Your lovely eco-conscious hosts Salvatore and Sarah ensure a special stay and think of every last detail: lavender bags, flowers, their own olive oil, truffle and asparagus foraging tips, local lore; pizza and pasta making (and eating), too. Sip Sal's homemade limoncellos over sublime sunsets on the terrace, gaze at the stars. And look forward to your discovery of this history steeped, culturally rich region.

Local points of interest from
Salvatore & Sarah Marano:

  • There are enough medieval hilltop towns within easy reach to keep you busy for many return trips & always see something new. We have plenty of tips to keep the kids happy too. Join in with one of the many exciting festivals celebrated throughout the year.
  • Umbria boasts outstanding natural beauty and truly impressive landscapes for you to enjoy. There are some wonderful walking opportunities right from our doorstep but we also have good quality trail maps for spectacular national parks and Lake Trasimeno.
  • Immerse you senses with wine tasting, catered evenings and pasta making courses here ‘at home’ at La Cuccagna or let us arrange a tour at a fabulous organic vineyard.
  • For the adrenalin junkies among you we make arrangements for paragliding, caving and whitewater rafting (to mention just a few) with our contacts who are safe and reliable.
  • For those wanting to take home souvenirs we make recommendations with local artists, artisans and food producers that you wouldn’t find on the tourist trail.
  • We happily give our guests useful tips to get ‘off the beaten track’ and experience the very best our local area has to offer so we look forward to meeting you and sharing some of our best kept local secrets.

Guest feedback
"We stayed here for 3 nights in Septemeber... and wanted to stay forever! Sarah & Salvatore are magnificent hosts, very friendly, very attentive,but also very discreet. Working in the hotel industry (as my husband and I do) makes us very demanding when looking for places to stay and La Cuccagna was certainly well above our expectations.The rooms are impeccable, the service fantastic, the views magnificent... We were lucky enough to enjoy Salvatore's pizza night, the best pizza we have EVER had. What more can I say... thank you both for making our three days there so relaxing and special... we hope to be able to return very soon! Jenny & Marc"
