What a wedding!

We were privileged to be a part of friends' wedding at this wonderful villa

It is a long way from home in Australia, but it was a wedding none of us will ever forget

What a wedding! What a setting!

Stayed May 2013, traveled with friends

Villa Catureglio was where we decided to get married and stayed from 30th May - 6th June.
We spent a whole week with around 30 immediate family, bridesmaids and groomsmen. We enjoyed the gardens that are beautifully kept, food and plenty of wine before and after the wedding. It was such a fantastic location, not only for the wedding, but for the whole family to relax and enjoy. The 3 cottages, one apartment and villa all have their own kitchens and gardens that allow people to have their own space, but the pool areas and gardens around the villa are wonderful spaces for people to congregate. The villa is also 30 minutes to Lucca and trains run regularly enough from Borgo a Mozzano to Lucca - it was ideal.
Richard and Kate took excellent care of us and really helped us out with all arrangements both relevant to the wedding and in the days before and after. We felt so lucky to have stumbled across the villa and the people who run it. They helped us with caterers, flowers, decorations, all important legal paperwork and had the most accommodating taxi/minibus service that were never imposed upon, no matter the hour to take us as far or near as we and our guests wanted to go. Kate also organised a pizza night where pizza was made and cooked in the wood fired oven on the villa grounds. That was really a lovely evening and a great way to welcome all the family to the Villa and the week that awaited us.

We had the most magical time staying there and having our wedding on the grounds. Many of our guests commented it was the best wedding they have ever been to.

I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Villa Catureglio to anyone.

My daughter was married in Valdottavo Italy in October 2011. In planning the wedding, we needed accommodations for about 35 people traveling from the US. My daughter recommended that we use Villa Catureglio as they have many destination weddings for brides from the UK and other European countries.

Our daughter and her fiance were very familiar with Catureglio and it certainly lived up to their enthusiastic recommendation. We were thrilled with villa, which is about 25 minutes from Lucca, and only wish we had more than a week to stay there!

The property is magnificent and our guests were overwhelmed with the beauty of the estate and surrounding mountain vistas. We utilized the main villa, and the five adjacent cottages to house everyone and used the "barn" for a beautiful reception for about 75 people.

One evening we had a cooking class for 18 guests and the kitchen was perfectly setup to accommodate an event like this. It was a great event and would highly recommend a cooking class if you want a great dinner, and lots of fun too.

On the night before the wedding, we arranged for a local pizzola to come in, using an 1835 outdoor pizza oven to cooks pizzas for our entire group, which we ate on the patio surrounded by grapes, wisteria, lemon trees and olives. It was fantastic.

The villa exceeded our expectations and many of our guests hope to return to Catureglio again and use it as a central point for discovering more of Tuscany.

We used a nearby company Tuscandrivers.com recommended by the proprietors of Catureglio to provide transportation throughout the week. They were very professional, courteous, prompt, and most importantly safe, and I would highly recommend them if you have transportation needs while at Catureglio.

Catureglio was the perfect setting for an Italian wedding celebration. Our daughter married a local Italian and many of the local guests were also very impressed with the property and the services they offered. We very much look forward to staying at Catureglio again!

I found this wedding venue on the internet, and my son and (now daughter-in-law) made it their first visit on their recce for their celebrations from a list of about 9 other venues in the Tuscany region. From the minute they drove up to the Villa they knew it would be the favourite! The setting is magnificent, in rolling Tuscan hills, peaceful, beautiful gardens and very well equipped and laid out accommodation.
We 'took over' the whole of the Villa and the three cottages which enabled the two families to stay, and Kate and Richard who manage the estate were able to furnish our other guests with very good choice of accommodation nearby.
The ceremony, and wedding reception and dinner was a one stop shop and how fabulous it was too.
Admittedly the weather was betwwen 82-90 the whole time we were there, but shady olive trees and pergolas and of course sun umberellas provided some relief.
Although much hard work and many emails and two trips to Italy from UK did go into this wedding day, it certainly paid off.
The catering was amazing, the staff were superb, the band was fantastic, and the duo who provided the background music for the canapes and prosecco pre ceremony were delightful.
Although ours was a civil ceremony, the mayor resplendent in his Italian colours sash, accompanied by the registrar and Kate who kindly did the translations, there is a charming chapel on site with a very detailed ceiling, should anyone require the spiritual side.
The Villa, and the Cottages, had their own swimming pool - the only 'down' side, the cobbled area and gradient to one swimming pool and steps to the other, does limit the accessibility for people with mobility difficulties, but I suspect could be overcome with some ingenuity: the drive to the village was, although a bit hairy at night, relatively easy and quick where the shops and inhabitants were very helpful and extremely friendly.
We couldnt fault a thing, and would very happily go back there for a 'holiday'. I couldnt recommend it enough for a Dream Wedding.

The only fly in the ointment was Easyjet, no surprises there then) who failed to deliver my sisters' suitcase and Luton Airport who were not the vaguest bit interested in assisting! However, the staff at Pisa airport did their best to get the case to the villa but it arrived just as we sat down to eat! At least they were more helpful than the lot at Luton.
Fortunately, being near Lucca and in Italy, they were able to drop into town and buy a very smart Linen suit on the Friday before!
Now, can you imagine doing that in a village in UK, I dont think so.
