This is the most important aspect of your planning. The most appropriate Location will be a Castle, a mansion, a ballroom that over looks a garden or a garden setting. In Italy you can decide about a Castle on the Lake, a Fortress on the Country or a Castle on the Sea. There’re more than 4000 castles in Italy, so you have a big choice. We’ve selected 3 different venues for your wedding:

Magic Castle on the Enchanting Lake Orta. Lake Orta is a atiny and intimate Lake on the Northern Italy . It is a minor star in the costellation of the subalpine lakes, but all the fascination and the history of the larger lakes seem to be concentrated in this short space. Nestled among the wild places of the Piedmont hills, locade at 568 m above sea level, the 19th century castle offer a spectacular view on Lake Orta and on the Alps. The castle offers wide rooms featured by panelled ceiling and splendid wooden floor. The surrounding park is particular for its english grass secular trees and wonderful azaleas.

Aperitif on the gardens, elegant room for candlelight dinner and a ballroom for the magical first dance.



Fairytale Castle in Tuscany

If you’re searching a fairytale venue that can also accommodate family and guests in the quiet Tuscan country, this 1400 fortress is the ideal venue for your fantasy tale style wedding. Your Wedding reception can be organised at the Castle: the entire Piano Nobile (a series of furnished and frescoed rooms) can be put at Guests' disposal together with the garden, a splendid terrace overlooking the unspoilt panorama of the Chianti hills, and the Stables, where you can relax or let yourself go in dancing. You and any of your guests can stay in the B&B rooms situated on the first floor of the Castle, in the Priest's House next to the Castle, and in the farm apartments. For religious symbolic weddings there is a small private chapel overlooking the square opposite the Castle and for civil weddings there’re different historic town halls in the Chianti. For your guests it can arranged a guided tour of the Castle Old Cellar underground; a tasting of our products ( wines and olive oil) ; a fine barbecue to welcome guests who are staying at the Castle; a Mediaeval evening, with live music and singing in a soft, evocative atmosphere lit only by torches, naked flames, oil lamps and candles.Medieval Fortress on the SeaIn a nice little village of the Italian Riviera, this beautiful medieval castle lies direct on the Sea. It is located in the Golfo dei Poeti (Gulf of the poets) ,near the city and port of La Spezia. This name comes from the many poets and authors that were attracted to this part of Italy including Mary Shelly (Frankenstein), D.H.Lawrence and Byron (Don Juan).
