We got in touch with Silvia (who owns this place) by visiting their website when we started planning our wedding. And from the first mail we got, we knew that this was people who really wanted to do everything to make sure our special day would be perfect. The decision was not difficult to make, and in September 2013 we went to La Ghiandaia to celebrate our wedding with our closest friends and family. We rented the whole place for 4 days, and were 15 adults and 3 kids. It was a perfect amount of guests, so everybody could have their privacy and the kids could sleep where they wanted to. The weather was lovely, and we enoyed the sun, the pool and the beautiful surroundings.This really is a place for piece and relaxation, and the breathtaking view makes you feel a little closer to heaven. The first evening our dearest hosts Silvia and Luca prepared a 3-course meal for us, and wow (!) it was sooo good! The desert was heavenly! Everybody enjoyed it and we got the Italian feeling right away! The next day we had wine-tasting on our program and our guide Sergio took us out to see the beautiful places nearby and taste some really nice wine. It was a great experience, and from La Ghiandaia you can visit a lot of nice places in only a short time:-) In the evening we arranged a BBQ and had a good time with music, table tennis and good wine from the farm next to La Ghiandaia.
Saturday was the day of the wedding, and with a lot of help from Silvia and Luca the day was just as perfect as we hoped for. The food was exceptional and from another world! 5 courses with Italian love! Pasta, tomatosoup, cheese, olives, ham, pork, and panna cotta among others! Everything prepared by the two masterchefs who runs this place!
Sunday we had some quiet hours and in the afternoon we went to Greve and the wine festival. Crowdy and hot, but fun and a LOT of wine to taste! On the way back we stopped in Dudda for dinner, a nice and cozy place with very good food, although they had a little trouble with the service and language this evening...
Monday was the day of departure and it was really tough to say goodbye to this beautiful family, and their wonderful place! La Ghiandaia is truly rustique, full of small details and secrets and you'll discover new things every day. Every room has it's own carm and are named after it's style, It's really Italian country-style, and we loved it! Beautiful flowers, olive trees, birdsong, wineyards, green woods and the most loveable people! They'll do anything to make your stay memorable and we'll never forget all they did for us to make this trip so special and perfect. We love you!
