Dear lovely readers, I hope you are super fine! Today let’s talk about a beautiful wine estate and breathtaking event location with six private residences. I am talking about the Villa Medicea di Lilliano, which takes its name from the Medici rulers of Tuscany, to whose numerous country retreats the villa was joined in the XVII century, and from its location atop the small plateau of Lilliano that rises between the villages of Antella and Grassina to the south of Florence.
First of all, congratulations for your engagement and for choosing Italy for your Destination Wedding! The Italian “I dos” make for memorable destination weddings, rich with history, quality and unique food, fine wines and spectacular venues, from the Tuscan countryside to the charming Venetian Villas, to the beaches of the Italian Riviera or to the Apulian Masserias. But we’re sure you already know this! Now, it’s time to start planning your dream wedding, let’s talk about the most important steps.
Hi everyone! Today we’ll present to you the third and last Tuscan venue of this series: Borgo Stomennano.
The tiny village (borgo) of Stomennano is located in the heart of the Chianti region close to Monteriggioni, one of the most famous medieval walled towns of Tuscany. It is also 15 minutes from Siena and about 40 minutes from Florence, the region’s art-packed capital.
Hi everyone! Today we want to introduce you to La Corte dei Papi, a stunning country residence of the 1700s located a few kilometers from Cortona. It is nestled in a small valley surrounded by the typical suggestive rolling hills of Tuscany that offer peace, tranquility and an amazing scenery.
There is also a large pine forest and grounds of about 2 hectares. The swimming pool is the frame of the summer restaurant and the protagonist of outdoor events.
Today we’ll move to Tuscany to talk about Villa Grabau. It is a charming historic private Villa dating back to the year 1550, located just 7 kilometers from Lucca, one of Tuscany’s most beloved artistic cities. The building has a neoclassical style that offers the guest suggestions of an unchanged time.
Laid down on the hills, the historic compound of Villa Grabau is surrounded by a 9 hectares botanical park divided in several architectural gardens and dotted with centuries-old trees and true arboreal rarities.
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!
