If you’re wondering how this intimate wedding destination looks like and how it can be the perfect place for your big day, here are some details to help you decide. This wedding venue in Florence has two private gardens for intimate wedding ceremonies. They are characterized by a pure Italian vibe, with the minimalist yet lively natural environment surrounding the area. The hotel got inspiration from the element of water so expect fountains and other water features all over the place. With the private gardens where you can hold a very intimate ceremony, there’s no reason not to pick this Italian venue for your wedding. The facilities are complete for all you’ll ever need.
Despite the 15th century vibe of the hotel, it is still filled with modern amenities. The wellness center with sauna and a Turkish bath facility, the free bikes, and an artistically designed pool with luscious greens all around are some of these amenities. The Flora and Fauna restaurant right beside the pool is a wonderful place to dine in because the villa’s international chefs will cook the food right in front of you. They use only fresh seasonal ingredients for all their dishes. There’s also a mini bar near the restaurant.
The restaurant with the view of the pool is the perfect place to hold your reception. You can rent the restaurant, from the veranda facing the pool up to the lounge bar so you and your guests will have the best experience. Even the pool can be rented out as an extension of your reception area.
You can choose from among the Suite, Junior Suite, Deluxe, Executive, and Superior rooms - 45 in total and each with a different style. The interiors’ themes are either fabric, literature, or botany. Some rooms have a mini library while some have a jacuzzi. You will be surprised to see literature-inspired rooms with book pages creatively pasted on the headboard of the bed. In some of the rooms, you will feel the classic Italian ambiance with the help of landscape paintings, uniquely framed artworks, and other decorations that display the historic Florentine art. Imagine seeing all these elements while you dress up and prepare for your exchange of vows.
