We've been meaning to thank everyone for their first class hospitality, patience, hard work and humour for ages and since watching our wedding videos, it's bought it all back. We truly had the time of our lives whilst celebrating our wedding at the Castle. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating, they organised so much of the wedding for us and had patience of saints, they worked so hard - Giacomo and the gang were amazing, manning our bar until 5am on the night of our wedding, still with a beaming smile on their faces, and up again at the crack of dawn! Giacomo has probably learnt a thing or two about wedding planning, flowers, interpreting menus, the wedding legalities, we couldn't have done it without the wonderful staff. And the Count was amazing, so kind of him to look after us and conduct the wedding blessing. It was a shame as despite being beautiful in the morning, we had a bit of rain during our wedding day which stopped us from getting married in the wooded clearing, but the castle kept up with a plan B and we had the ceremony by the chapel area.
The castle catered for everyones tastes - our friends, family of all ages from our toddler nephew to my 89 year old grand-parents. Everyone had a great time, we took over the whole venue and relaxed by the pool, ate ( a lot!) played volleyball etc, went horse-riding and generally had a great time. We organised a pizza party the night before the wedding which was delicious.
The accommodation is lovely, my only comment would be that the beds could do with replacing, but this is a very minor point and we have had similar experience through out Italy over the years.
This was the perfect venue for our big day, off the beaten track and not a package deal, attention to detail and the personal touches were perfect and we had the time of our lives, the signing chef sang Ave Maria while I walked down the isle and kept everyone entertained - we loved it!
Would highly recommend this venue and the wonderful staff.
Thanks everyone x
