I have not written many reviews but this one is the easiest and most deserved review i have ever done. Our daughter Caitlin and her fiance Chris got married at Casale del Gallo, this past September. This was the most beautiful and elegant wedding I have ever seen and I am not saying this because my daughter was the bride. I am saying this picturesque, gorgeous venue is so perfect, in every way. Giulio and his staff (his father and Jamal) had literally thought of everything to make our daughters' wedding and our families stay just perfect. He has wonderful vendors that helped with the flowers, hair, makeup and tours etc. Giulio was so gracious and helpful our entire stay and he had marvelous suggestions for our group of 30. And his food was hands down the very best food we had in Italy. Casale del Gallo was truly amazing. I gave this review 5 stars but it really deserves 10 stars. It is absolutely perfect!
Giulio has offered us a wonderful experience with his great hospitality, professionalism and with Casale del Gallo's beautiful location and comfortable amenities.
I had such a great time there.
Thank You Giulio.
Writing this review, I worry that I will not do Giulio justice. Words cannot fully express the immense gratitude I have for him. I got married at Casale del Gallo this past Saturday October 27th. My husband found the location late last year, and we chose it because of the beautiful villa and the amazing reviews he had. People have gotten married there before, so we figured we were in good hands. And we were right. Giulio took care of everything with me, with professionalism, patience and love.
First the location, it is just outside of Rome about 35 mins from FCO. As you enter the countryside the views are breathtaking. You can see trees, fields, farms, sheep, and the most beautiful houses. Casale del Gallo is even more beautiful in person. Every detail of the house had the traditional roman castle feel. At the same time it still felt like a family home, cozy, elegant, spacious, timeless. We stayed in the three houses, and all of them had their own kitchens, so it was very comfortable for us. The bedrooms had the option to do twin beds or double beds, which was great to have that flexibility for our guests. The rooms and bathrooms were perfectly kept, with plenty of space to put away your belongings. Giulio’s support staff was also so sweet and helpful. The groundskeeper helped everyone with their luggage, and the house staff would clean and help answer any questions we had around the house. As soon as we arrived we all gathered in the huge living room in the main house, it was just so comfortable and wonderful to all be together. The dining area could seat a lot of people, and we were able to all eat at the same time. All three of the houses were beautiful, and all of my guests were happy with their stay. The trees and plants around the house were breathtaking, and we were able to walk around and enjoy the sights.
The wedding planning from afar was what I was most worried about. But Giulio was always available to me when needed, and he was always on top of everything. He found the wedding vendors, he prepared a spreadsheet with me to track all of the items and costs, the room layouts for all of my guests and made sure to walk me through the agreements and payments we had. We had people flying in from Japan, Mexico, California, Alabama and more, and he managed to book private transportation for everyone! He handled everything from arrivals through the wedding and check out beautifully. And the wedding day itself was perfect. The violinist was amazing, and he mixed old and new music as well as accepted requests. You have to book him if you have a wedding; it was a unique detail everyone enjoyed. The DJ he found had all of the music we requested and played a great variety for us. Diana prepared all of the decorations exactly how I asked. My bouquet was the most beautiful set of flowers I have seen, better than what you can find on Pinterest. I highly recommend you use Diana, she was so sweet and professional. The food was sooo good, and great portions. The gnocchi was my favorite. And the chef was able to find dishes for my vegetarian and vegan guests.
This is too long, but I did not want to miss anything. Giulio did so much for us, and I am so thankful that we found him for such an important occasion. If you are reading this and want to visit Rome or get married in Rome, I can promise you that you do not need to keep looking for a location. This is it, hands down. Thank you Giulio!
My sister and her fiancée married at Casale del Gallo in January 2018. We were a total of 13 people traveling together. We stayed 3 nights including the wedding. Giulio is fantastic! He is very attentive to every detail and we loved how it all turned out. We often find ourselves reminiscing our stay there. We can't wait for a future opportunity to return. Grazie mile Giulio!
It's simple really.
My wife and I held our wedding celebration here, and it was the best weekend of our lives due to the location and hosting abilities of Guilio.
It's also even better than the photos suggest.
Casale del Gallo is really a dream come true. We recently hosted our wedding here and working with Guilio and his team made our destination wedding and vacation a seamless and stress-free experience.
The homes themselves are perfect for multiple families AND several friends and are beautifully thought out in terms of living space, kitchens, restrooms and design style. It really is such a special and beautiful estate.
The staff is second to none. Guilio, his dad and the on-site staff lead Jamal are the ultimate dream team and I cannot recommend them enough. Every request that came in they handled with efficiency and superior customer service.
I would definitely recommend Casale del Gallo for a relaxing and beautiful stay in the Rome countryside and/or your wedding. We look forward to our next trip to Italy so we can stay here again and work with Guilio & team.
We chose the venue online for our small wedding weekend in Italy. Our guests traveled from USA, Australia and Russia to attend the event and all stayed at the house.
By all means, this was the best weekend of our lives to far. We couldn't have dreamt of a better location, better catering, DJ etc. Giulio our host was exceptional in his hospitality, kindness and in foreseeing any need our guests could possible have.
I'm jealous of you, if you are going to stay here.
