Our Proposal


Getting married in winter or at Christmas time means experiencing a magical world in the Villa, surrounded by the typical items of this time—lights, firs, poinsettias and sparkling decorations. A great choice, rich in beauty and poetry, ideal for those who love the romanticism of winter landscapes and warm and bright atmospheres.

Plan your Christmas Wedding with us!


Anything can happen at night, you can make a wish under a shooting star and picture a magic reception. A memorable wedding—a long aperitif and a flawless table service, then the cake cutting and the unforgettable party: good music with DJ or live performance and open bar. Scenic lights, candles, lanterns, sofas and large cushions for a unique atmosphere, to daydream the dream of love.

Plan your Wedding Under The Stars with us!


Colourful, scented, full of light and suggestions—summer is the ideal season to celebrate an unforgettable reception. Getting married during the summer months offers undeniable advantages: more hours of light, more pleasant temperatures and celebrating your wedding outdoors. Our location offers many original solutions for celebrating a reception in the lush greenery of our beautiful gardens, with banquet service or divided by flavour corners. The opening aperitif and the wedding cake, on the other hand, deserve a special space, designed with the banqueting manager together with the bride and the groom in the amazing villa scenario.
