Your wedding in Tuscany in a ‘borgo’, or restored hamlet with villa and stunning views of the surrounding countryside between Florence and Siena.
This small abandoned hamlet with its noble villa dating back to the 12th century was rescued after decades of neglect into an intimate collection of buildings restored with distinctive originality and style. There are small courtyards, immaculately tended Renaissance style gardens with box hedges and fountains, as well as secluded places to sit and relax looking at the sweeping views over the wooded hills and a small lake. All in all a charming and elegant place in which to stay.
The borgo has a swimming pool immersed in an olive grove, a tennis court, an elegant restaurant, bar, beautiful gardens and terraces and a large wine cellar. During your stay you can either relax with your friends and family around the pool, organise a wine tasting in the large impressive cellars or even arrange some cooking classes. Effectively you can have the borgo to yourself, with your friends and family staying in the various rooms, apartments and suites but still retaining the individual’s privacy. Throughout the borgo the internal living areas and rooms are all individually and tastefully restored, with no two rooms the same. All are furnished to high standards with genuine antiques and decorated in style with softly colourwashed walls and quality fabrics.
Because of the inherent elegance and romance of the borgo it has hosted many weddings over the years making it the perfect place to celebrate your wedding. You can effectively book the entire borgo for your own exclusive use so you and your guests have complete privacy and can relax and be superbly looked after by the efficient and friendly staff. Its beautifully tended and well-established gardens with sculptures, fountains and terraces with views offer you and your guests ample opportunity to wander leisurely in the grounds or to take photos
In the case of a religious wedding there is either a small church outside the grounds of the borgo in the small town which is an easy 100yard walk. Or just over 10 minutes drive away there is a beautiful Romanesque country church immersed in the hills with lovely views. Alternatively, you can celebrate your wedding in the grounds of the borgo or in the case of bad or cold weather in a large historical salon, again within the grounds of the venue.
After your wedding the borgo offers one of the most perfect venues for the wedding reception. Aperitivos can be held outside wherever you like within the grounds... either in the large courtyard, on a shady terrace overlooking the lovely views of the hills and lake or in the Rennaisance gardens. Alternatively in the case of bad weather or rain there is a large elegant salon where your guests can be served their aperitivo and authentic Tuscan antipasti. For your reception dinner there is a grand restaurant which can cater for anything up to 130 people inside or you can decide to eat outside under the shade of large umbrellas. The cuisine in the borgo is well-known in the region and every dish will be carefully prepared and decorated for you.
After the meal you can continue your celebrations late into the night with dancing and music, an open bar and canapés in the comfort of knowing that the bedrooms are only a few steps away!
Being immersed in the countryside between Siena and Florence there is the opportunity to visit either of these two hugely historical and cultured cities or indeed Arezzo which is not far away. All are within an hour’s drive of the borgo and Florence can be reached by a 20minute train ride from the nearby town. Once you have seen the borgo however you may well decide to stay within its peaceful grounds where you can arrange a wine-tasting in the large and very well stocked ancient wine cellar or maybe organise a short cooking class. Alternatively you could just relax by the pool in the shade of the olive trees or simply stroll through the lovely gardens or read a book in the shade on a terrace overlooking a wonderful view.
