Cascina Cuccagna – A countryside farm in Milan

When I want get out into the countryside without actually going to the countryside, I love going to this truly hidden gem in Milan, a 17th century farmhouse turned public space featuring a very good restaurant, a self-service bar with homemade bakery snacks, a wonderful garden growing vegetables, a hostel, bike and wood workshops, a wine shop, a farmer’s market offering selected local produce and various events.

The moment I enter the courtyard and garden, I leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind me. Cascina Cuccagna, is a peaceful hangout for lazing around, especially during sunny days. A lunch can quickly turn into an afternoon, whiling away in thoughts, reading a book, or simply having a bottle of wine (or beers) with friends.

The restaurant, Un posto a Milano (with seats both in- and outside) serves up delicious and conscious dishes at a fair price, including many vegetarian options. If you don’t feel like a sit-down meal, you can pick up a focaccia or cake and drinks, and sit in the garden. I can also recommend the cocktails.

Keep your eyes open for flyers promoting their countless events, ranging from exhibitions to wine tastings.
