Our 5 apartments are very spacious and well furnished. They are located on a hill surrounded by forest and quiet is our main asset.
Each apartment has a kitchen full of everything you need to be independent but if you don't want to cook we prepare breakfast and dinners!
Sole is our biggest apartment on the ground floor of the main big house. It has an independent entrance and a big private garden accessible from the kitchen. It has two bedrooms (one triple and one double), two bathrooms, a big living room with fireplace and open spacious kitchen.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
We like to get to know our guests and we live in one of the houses so we are always available in case a guests needs us. But we can give you all the privacy you may want if you are more of an independent traveler!
We like to have a chat during breakfast in our limonaia room which is a common space for everybody to socialize.
We are happy to give info about our area, places to visit, places to eat and anything you would like to know!
We came to Umbria as foreigners and we have been living here for about nine years, so we know what is like to get to know our area for the first time and we try to help you in any way we can!
We also manage an apartment in the center of Rome (beyond piazza Cavour and castle sant'angelo) so we can organize for you to visit Umbria and Rome during the same trip
We ask that you respect the quiet of our place and the fact that we have many guests who come to stay with us with their dogs.
We have rules for how to keep your dog so that everybody could be comfortable. The main rule is to keep your dog on a leash in the common areas and not leave it unattended in or outside of the apartment where you are staying. For people with dogs we provide services like dog sitting, dog training...
We don't allow smoking in the apartments or inside the common room.
I belong to many differente places, from Rome to New York, but about 9 years ago I came to live in Umbria to embrace the country life with my husband Breon (a real newyorker!) and our two children. We transformed a farm in a Holiday Country Farm. The last 7 years have been spent receiving all sort of guests from Italy or from other countries and raising our kids, Simon and Lucia, now 13th and 10th.
I learned the rythms of the country, the umbrian special cuisine, how to make my own bread, yogurt and cheese, croissant and all kind of jams and products for my home made breakfast and my special tasting dinner.
I also collect recipes from my guests and I experiment cooking different kind of food!
i didn't abandoned my original passion, which is writing and science.
And I mantain a good relationship with Rome where I manage an apartment for touristic rentals.
If you want to know better about my hospitality you can check the reviews on tripadvisor from my many guests at Agriturismo Il Cucciolo (
These are some of the opinions from our guests:

Breon will coach you and train your dog using his vast experience in the field. You will be amazed how quickly your dog will happilly do what you have always wanting him to do...

"Renovated flats on a beautiful farm in the Umbrian countryside. Rustic, yet well appointed. The flats are large and comfy, and with lots of common area for relaxing. The area is perfect for walking, hiking, biking and dining. Many beautiful day trips in the area. Lots for kids to do. The owners are very warm and take great care of the guests. Well worth a visit!"
