We had our wedding at Castelvecchi this past November. I doubt if I can find the right words to describe the wonderful experience we had. The location is breathtaking. Situated on a high hill, between vineyards and olive trees, full of green meadows and rustic buildings, you just can't get enough of. It just works. In terms of facilities it provided all that we wanted and more, the rooms in the main Villa are big and luxurious and just across are the apartments which are very spacious and cozy. Five minute drive from the venue is the picturesque town of Radda where you can find very good local restaurants, beautiful streets to walk through and some lovely little shops. More than anything else, the true reason to come to Castelvecchi, be it for a wedding, a vacation, or just for a visit, is the service!
Choosing a venue for your wedding is a delicate matter, and we were picky. We reviewed about 15 places in the region before deciding. Our main events took place on the Friday and Saturday, but we stayed at the venue from Wednesday till the following Sunday. Everything was far beyond our expectations. We had not even a single compliant from our guests - on the contrary, until today they still remind us of the fairy-tail time they all had. We were even asked to have our anniversary at Castelvecchi every year.
We found all staff to be friendly and highly professional. Vittorio, the venue manager, speaks excellent English and is organized and attentive. No issue was left unresolved.
The reception and dinner were of very high standard. The venue was decorated in an elegant and tasteful manner. In one afternoon they had turned the main villa into a beautiful banquet hall. Waiting staff were elegantly dressed, very available and extremely professional. The restaurant manager himself was present at all times. Needless to say the food was delicious, varied and of high quality. Vegetarian options were available and were just as good.
Bottom line - We highly recommend and vouch for Castelvecchi, whether you're looking for a fairytale getaway or an elegant event, pretty much everything! Feel free to contact us with questions: yoav.aviram AT gmail.com.
