Well, what can I say….We had our wedding with Slow Dreams at The Santavenere on 1st September 2009. After a year of careful planning and lots of apprehension we simply had THE best time. The hotel is one of those that ‘you only know about, if you know about!’ Set back in a secluded part of beautiful Maratea, white gates for an entrance and the most peaceful vibe as you travel down into the grounds. We kept the venue a bit of a secret from our guests as we didn’t want to over-do it. In the days leading up the wedding we’d go there for various meetings and each time we’d just be blown away by the pure simplicity and beauty of the location. Yes, the owners is often by the side of the pool on his phone but we never saw him being rude – quite the opposite, he was very calm, friendly and professional. We own a large hotel and we were more than happy with the service and attitude of the ownership, I even felt the huge to give him a big kiss when we left! Special praise must go to the hotel manager, he really seemed to put his heart and soul into our big day. In addition, the restaurant staff and bar staff on the day seemed genuinely happy for us and keen to do everything they could to make the day amazing. They were also very relaxed about what time the party ended and I will never forget our firework show over the sea and dancing under the stars! In a nutshell, we had the best wedding we could have imagined and it wouldn’t have happened if we hadn’t stumbled across The Santavenere. In many ways I want Maratea to stay a hidden gem, we don’t want the charm and natural beauty of the area to ever be ruin – but at the same time, if you’re thinking of having your wedding in Maratea at The Santavenere – fear not. Slow Dream, The Santavenere and the Town Hall will seamlessly ensure you day is as magical as ours and will welcome everyone inside.
