There's nothing about this place and the amazing staff that hasn't already been written. All I can add - it's all true. We got married in September 2013 and I can't recommend it highly enough. Renata did the catering - brilliant. The Enoteca next to the Town Hall in Cortona provided our wine - very good selection, very reasonably priced. Marco and his team surpassed all our expectations. An amazing week. The hype is true.

So, where to start..Well if you are thinking of having your wedding in a beautiful tuscan villa, if you want to be surrounded by amazing scenery and countryside, if you want to indulge in amazing food and wine, if you want to have fun with friends and family, then Villa Baroncino is the only place to do it and Marco and his team are the only people to help you organise it.

I would describe myself as a bit of perfectionist, I spent months researching locations in Italy for our wedding and eventually came upon Villa Baroncino. When you read the reviews you find yourself wondering can it really be that good? Well the answer is yes it really can. We went to visit Marco and Villa Baroncino twice before our wedding day and both times he and his team spent hours with us discussing the various options around our wedding day. We were planning a wedding with about 100 guests and most were planning on staying the week at or close to the villa with us. A mix of mostly Irish and South African friends and family who know how to party, it was going to be an eventful week. Right from the start Marco understood what we were looking for and we knew straight away we had found our dream location.

Even though the wedding was larger than the usual numbers for a destination wedding, the organisation was completely seemless. The step by step guide is very useful and ensures you have everything organised and the responses are extremely efficient and save a lot of time in the long run. We wanted to add our own touch to the occasion and Marco and his team were more than accommodating, from sourcing our own wine, to videographers and photographers and little additions to the occasion during the day.

All of our guests were blown away on arrival at the villa and the surrounding accommodation. We spent our first night down by the lake at Ciao Ciaos, where the food is simple but very very tasty. It was the first of many meals there! We then proceeded to party the night away in the nightclub above the restaurant. Marco was there to make sure we were taken care of and had everything we needed. Day 2 was spent lounging by the pool as more guests arrived and that night we had a bbq which was perfect. Day 3 was preparation day and while the wedding party was busy organising for the big day, most of the other guests explored the surrounding countryside and the spectacular town of Montepulciano. That night Marco had organised an amazing dinner for the families in the local town of Passignano sul Trasimeno.

Day 4, the main event. It could not have been better organised by Marco and his team. the day flowed effortlessly and we did not have to worry about a single thing. Everything was on time and we were made to feel so relaxed. We got married in the town hall in Cortona, which is the most amazing setting, wandering through the ancient streets with my new bride, it was a dream come true. Back to the villa and the party got into full swing. The six course menu was amazing, presentation was outstanding and service was perfect. We put everything a bit out of whack with two hours of speeches which took place in between the courses but again everything was dealt with amazingly well. We partied until the very very early hours of the morning..the perfect day.

Day 5, most of the guests came back to the villa and we spent the day around the pool, sharing stories and having pizzas delivered to us from Ciao Ciaos. Over the next few days the guests started to make their way home and we had a few days exploring the countryside and relaxing in our beautiful setting.

I was skeptical as to whether all the previous reviews could be that accurate, but i can honestly say we had the greatest week of our lives. We are nearly a year on from our wedding and all of our guests are still talking about that week. I lost count of the number of times people have asked us when can we go back and do it all again. It is definitely a possibility, maybe for our 5th wedding anniversary, it can't come quick enough.

Marco, Ina and team, thank you very much for making our dreams come true. We have been to some very special places around the world, but none come close the level of hospitality and warmth we felt while with you for that week. Its a week we will never forget, we are truly truly grateful.

Villa Baroncino is everything and more than you expect for a wedding venue. We searched high and low in Tuscany and Umbria for the perfect place, many were lovely, but nothing quite like this place!

If you are looking for a magical place to get married and spend a week with your loved ones, then choose Villa Baroncino!
We got married here in September 2012.

We are from the UK so did most of the organisation via email and telephone calls with Marco (the owner) and Alexandra (his collegue).
They have an '8 steps tool' to organise the wedding where you are given many choices for:
- food
- flowers
- music
- marriage ceremony
- transport
- activities
- hair & makeup
and many other extras also!

We chose to get married in Cortona town hall, which is also a very beautiful place. Marco took us through the timetable of the wedding day in a rehearsal the day before, which was really useful.
On the day many people came out to watch me enter the town hall and cheered as i walked up the steps (made me feel even more special!).
We chose Renata for our food on the day and also for a few breakfasts and a BBQ while we stayed at the villa which was really tasty rustic Italian food (my favourite).
Ina the villa manager was always on hand to help us with anything we needed, a real 5 star experience.

The flowers were perfect and the whole look of the place was fantastic.
I decided I wanted a horse and carriage to travel back to the villa which Marco hadn't used before, but he made it all run so smoothly.
The band were great too as they let me sing a song to my new husband (I'm in a band myself so it wasn't too horrendous!).
My friend was our photographer, but I would HIGHLY recommend having Kamil do a wedding video of the day, I watched it again yesterday and he really does capture the day perfectly.

All our guests were very happy with their accommodation with two pools on site and close to many site seeing areas.

Marco also owns a bar down by the lake called Ciao Ciao, which we also visited (and will be returning Marco!!).

All in all, I wouldn't have changed a single thing about our week at Villa Baroncino, absolutely perfect!
Thank you so much Marco and everyone else that made it the week of our lives!!

We had considered, for quite some time, getting married in Italy, however,
finding a trustworthy venue and wedding planner was proving to be
problematic....Until, that is, we found Marco!

From the earliest stages of the planning, right through to the wedding day
itself- Marco has been absolutely fantastic. He is well organised,
assertive, confident and he brings multi-tasking to a whole new level! But
above all, Marco is a true gentleman. Kind, honest and genuine. He takes
pride in his work and really pays attention to the requirements of each and
every wedding party. We had a very big group (106 guests) which meant a lot
of additional requests- but Marco was excellent throughout. He took calls
from us at all hours during our week at Baroncino and was always there to
help us. Thank you so much Marco- I could write so much more about you- you
did a wonderful job from start to finish.

Ina manages Villa Baroncino, and like Marco, she is extremely well organised
and always there to help. She is very practical and was great to have around
the villa during the week. She helped with many administrative tasks such as
printing boarding passes, hiring cars etc and was excellent on the day of
the wedding. She helped with the organisation of the marquee and general
running of the day. Thank you Ina- you were a brilliant help to us.

Marco very kindly organised a shuttle service between the villa, Ciao Ciao and the other
accommodations in the area for our convenience. Massimo was the driver for
this shuttle service and I cannot say enough good things about him! He
delivered pizza to us several times, took us from villa to villa, took us
to/ from Ciao Ciao (often very late at night!), drove guests to/from the
wedding, drove the wedding car....and much, much more. He was such a nice man.
Thank you so much Massimo- we really
appreciate everything you did for us during our week at Villa Baroncino!!

I opted for Nello and Sandy hair stylists and they were great. I had a trial
with Sandy the day before the wedding and was happy with the results. They
listened to our guests and worked very hard on the morning of the wedding to
make sure that everyone was happy. Sandy brought a team of hair stylists to
the villa on the morning of the wedding which was brilliant. Thank you!

We opted for Renata caterer for the reception and again, we were delighted.
The food was absolutely beautiful and there was so much. The wedding cake was stunning and so tasty! Thank you Renata and your team.

Cristina was our florist and she did a wonderful job. She was a lovely person and helped us so much on the morning of the wedding when we needed several candles for our lanterns in the marquee. She listened to our ideas and added her own creativity- the flowers were beautiful! Thank you Cristina!

Dj Alex provided the music for the wedding reception. He was absolutely brilliant! He accepted requests and played great, lively music. We had met Alex in Ciao Ciao prior to the wedding and again, he is a really nice man who took time to get to know us and ensure that the music matched the varying tastes within our wedding party. Thanks Alex!

We had Elle and Be film our wedding day and we are so happy with the end product. Blayre was such a great guy. He took time to get to know us and we really enjoyed his company. He is an exceptionally talented videographer- highly creative and forward thinking. Thanks so much Blayre- you captured everything so well.

We organised to have Julian (jules photographer) take our wedding photographs. Again, we are delighted with his work. His photographs capture our day so well. Jules was very professional and worked so hard on the day of the wedding to capture unique shots in the Umbrian countryside. Thanks for everything Jules!

And finally to all the staff at Villa Baroncino and Ciao Ciao- thank you all for making our week so special! Everyone worked together so well to put ourselves and our guests at ease. We loved every minute of our week in Tuoro and we cannot wait to go back!

We were married here in May of this year. It was the most fantastic wedding venue. Ourselves and every one of our 60 guests said it was by far the best wedding they had ever been to. We couldn't recommend Marco and all the staff at Villa Baroncino highly enough, they made our special day so wonderful, we would love to go back and do it all again. When we first looked at the pictures of Villa Baroncino online we thought it looked beautiful, but when when we arrived and saw it in the flesh we were absolutly blown away. The scenery is breathtaking, I just can't imagine a better place to have your wedding.

Room Tip: All the rooms are stunning!
