La Cuccagna

Gubbio, Perugia
Bed & Breakfast

In stunning Umbria, these charming hosts promise an authentic stay. Pasta making courses, truffle hunting, olive picking, an infinity pool


7 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Beautiful vistas swoop across wooded hills, olive groves and tower-topped hamlets, and paved paths weave through cherry trees and lavender to a hammock, pergola and exquisitely positioned pool. You’re on the top of the world here. Welcome to a big, solid, meticulously restored farmhouse, with chestnut windows, shutters and doors, and bedrooms rustic and spacious. Imagine old beams and terracotta, artisan fabrics and hand-painted lamps, mattresses to ensure deep sleep. The brand new dining room serves rustic dishes made from local, organic ingredients. Outside: masses of space. Your eco-conscious hosts Salvatore and Sarah, generous, kind and eager to please, think of everything to make your stay special: a communal living room with an honesty bar so you can help yourselves to drinks; a cane-covered pergola with cushioned chairs away from the view-filled pool; lavender bags and fresh flowers in the rooms. Sip Sal’s homemade limoncellos over sublime sunsets on the terrace, gaze on the distant towers of Perugia – and the stars. Breakfasts are delicious too.

We loved our stay at La Cuccagna. Sarah, Sal and Rosa were so welcoming and eager to help us in any way they could. The detailed instructions of places to go and visit, the wonderful breakfasts and their company was truly a highlight. We hated to leave and were very sad to say goodbye. The view, the sunsets, and the wonderful ambience of this place live on in our memories. We hope to go back one day in the future. Thanks for a wonderful stay. Connie and Peter

This was a real "Sawadays" experience. We stayed 4 nights, and enjoyed an extreme friendly welcome, very friendly hosts. A fantastc view, infinity pool and nice garden. Sarah and Salvatore were extreme hospitable, we never feld "customers" but we felt to be guests. Uppermost good stay, dont hesitate if you are in the neighbourhood lloking for a b&b. Also very very good tips, how and what to visit. 10/10

We spent three nights at La Caccugna and enjoyed every moment. Sarah and Sal were most welcoming and extremely helpful. Our room was quite spacious(most comfortable bed), with small kitchen/living area and private patio. Sarah was always there to suggest an itinerary - where to go, where to park, where to eat and give us lots of fascinatining inside knowledge. We particularly enjoyed breakfast with the other guests, all sitting round the same table. The views from the house were magnificent and we wished we could have stayed longer and had more opportunity to enjoy the beautiful pool.

The welcome at La Cuccagna could not have been warmer. Even two unseasonably wet days did not dampen it. Sal and Sarah are creating a wonderful treat for those who wish to be close enough away from the tourist sights. Their local knowledge of where to go and how to make the most of your stay added almost as much to our experience as their beautifully prepared breakfasts did to my waist line! Delightful homemade yoghurt, topped off with wonderful preserves, a great delight. Not to mention the freshly baked pastries, or cheese and meats. Memorable! We'd highly recommend it for any stay

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.
