Tuscany 05: a Reinassance villa in Chianti
A Renaissance villa on the rolling hills of Chianti area and only 15 km from Florence, this venue is an excellent setting for weddings in Italy and a great base to explore the beautiful Tuscany.
Just in front of the historical mansion, a wide luscious garden with high trees and cypresses welcomes the guests at their arrival at the villa. It’s an amazing landscape which recalls the beauty and tranquillity of Tuscany countryside. Here symbolic weddings, cocktails or dinner can be arranged on the wedding day. Adjacent to the garden is the portico of the villa: a romantic and intimate setting that I would recommend it for an impressive wedding ceremony.
Inside, the villa provides frescoed and elegantly furnished halls: a great backdrop for the photos of the wedding day.
A beautiful terrace with views on the vineyards and the outdoor swimming pool are located on the back of the villa. Also these areas can be made available for the celebrations of the wedding day. Briefly, the villa provides many locations suitable for each moment of the big day: from the wedding ceremony, to the outdoor reception and dancing party.
