About this listing
La Cuccagna offers a peaceful retreat in boutique style accommodation with unrivalled views stretching into Tuscany. Concierge service and the opportunity to get 'off the beaten track' and enjoy an 'authentic' Italian experience.
La Cuccagna is a traditional Umbrian farmhouse and outhouses. We have designed the entire ground floor of the main farmhouse to house four comfortable bed and breakfast rooms and the outhouses offer further B&B and self catering accommodation. This listing is for one B&B room although multiple rooms and or outhouses can bee booked together.
The B&B affords its own entrance and living accommodation.
All rooms are either double room or twin and all are en-suite, complete with luxury linens, plush towels, fluffy bathrobes and organic artisan toiletries. Some rooms and accommodation feature a further pull out bed or sofabed if required. One room has been specifically designed to accommodate visitors with a wheelchair.
The rooms are complemented by a lovely dining and living area and, as you might expect from an Italian retreat, we have brought the countryside into our home by providing a spacious outdoor patio with shaded pergola where you can sit and enjoy the stunning views.
The accommodation in the B&B includes a delicious continental breakfast (which includes homemade and locally produced organic food) which will set you up for the day’s activities.
Guests have access to all B&B facilities including the gardens, terraces, infinity pool, car park and other facilities.
