Cypress alleys, patchwork fields and crumbling castellos. Everyone can picture Tuscany, but it’s not always easy to capture the immensity of the endless waves of green you see with the naked eye, or the timeless quality of ancient stone streets.
The third and last Ligurian venue we want to present is Villa Durazzo and Villa San Giacomo.
It is an architectural complex located in Santa Margherita Ligure, one of the most attractive and elegant towns of Liguria, 35 kilometers from Genoa and 10 minutes from Portofino. The complex is one of the most important historical sites of the area and is also a museum. It is situated in the center of the village and right above the harbor of Santa Margherita.
Hi everyone, we left next week saying we would have talked about a venue in Liguria. Here we are with the description of one of the wedding locations of the Italian Riviera we like the most: L’Eremo della Maddalena.
The hermitage of La Maddalena is situated in an isolated position on a hill at about 3 kilometers from the town of Monterosso Al Mare, in the beautiful area of the Cinque Terre. The view is spectacular!
Hi everyone, today we want to present another beautiful wedding location in Liguria: Castello Canevaro.
This spectacular castle is located in Zoagli, an ancient Roman town 30 km from the Genoa Airport. The building is perched on a spur of rock that protrudes in the center of a gulf, named Gulf of Tigullio, and has direct access to a private beach with crystal-clear waters.
Castello Quistini is an ancient castle dating back to 1500 immersed in the hills of Franciacorta, close to the historic centre of Rovato.
It is surrounded by more than 10000 square meters of stunning botanical gardens: you can find a bioenergetic garden, a big labyrinth with 1500 varieties of roses where is possible to host the aperitif, the secret garden of the hydrangeas and an orchard with the oldest varieties of fruits and a vegetable garden.
Franciacorta is in the heart of Lombardy, a stone’s throw away from Milan and overlooking Lake Iseo in an area measuring around 200 square kilometres and comprising 19 towns in Brescia province. Its gentle hills, delimited to the west by the River Oglio and to the north-west by the Rhaetian Alps, owe their origin to ancient glaciers which carved out the future Franciacorta amphitheatre as they melted over 10,000 years ago.
The last Roman venue we want to talk about is Donna Camilla Savelli, a sophisticated hotel with artistic nuances housed in the former Baroque monastery of Santa Maria dei Sette Dolori.
It is located at the foot of the Gianicolo hills, in an intimate and quiet corner of the Trastevere neighbourhood, loved by artists and poets.
La Posta Vecchia is a stunning Renaissance Palazzo built right on a beach in Palo Laziale, 29 kilometres from the airport and 40 kilometers from the center of Rome.
It really is a one-of-a-kind luxurious retreat. Arezzo tapestries, Roman mosaics, precious art collections and ancient artefacts coexist in perfect harmony with a contemporary and elegant design.
The first Roman location we want to present to you is Antiche Scuderie Odescalchi, an elegant historic residence immersed in the green of the Roman countryside, near Lake Bracciano.
The property was used for agricultural activities and sheep-farming until 1887, when it was inherited by Prince Don Baldassarre who transformed it into stables for horse breeding and devoted himself to the improvement of the equine race. That’s the reason behind the name “Antiche Scuderie”, which means ancient stables.
