WEDDING AT BORGO STOMENNANO
One of the most popular venues sought by foreign couples.
You need to book in advance to find available dates. It is located in Monteriggioni, near Siena, which is about 1 hour from Florence.
The characteristic architrave with 2 columns that unites the two buildings of the seventeenth-century Villa is now rather famous and has been captured in thousands of photographs and blogs. But this place’s charm does not go out of fashion. The sumptuous avenue of cypress trees that leads up to the Villa already provides an indication of the venue’s importance and the two large gardens in front of the Villa are used for both ceremonies and receptions. The geometry of the flower beds and hedges make filming with drones highly suggestive.
The architrave columns provides a glimpse of the rear park where the lemon house and the other buildings annexed to the Villa are located, real farmhouses where part of the guests are staying. The total capacity of Villa and farmhouses is between 34 and 38 beds.
In case of bad weather, you can have an aperitif in the living room on the ground floor and dinner in the converted barn on the first floor.
We can define this space as being both romantic and functional, given that it can host a reception for more than 100 people.
The minimum stay is 3 nights and breakfast can be requested as an additional service for at least 30 people.
The proximity to the fortified castle of Monteriggioni makes it easy to celebrate civil and Catholic Rites, while symbolic or Protestant ceremonies can be held in the venue itself.
During the 3 days in Stomennano a visit to the fortress of Monteriggioni is a must. The walls of Muraria consist of 14 towers and 2 gates and form a delightful backdrop for your photos.
If you visit in July you can experience the “Medieval Festival” that sees the streets crowded with artisans and noble knights in costume. Don’t forget to enjoy a lunch or dinner in the typical Osterias located inside the fortress, perhaps during a concert or a fireworks display.
