A Unique Castle near Florence
There is no woman, not even the “tomboy”, even the most pragmatic and less prone to flights of fancy who has not at least once in her life dreamed of getting married in a castle. It’s part of the female nature to fly with fantasy, but it’s also part of her soul to know that sometimes dreams can also come true. Who knows, maybe this is “your time”…
Nestled in the hills of Tuscany, just 20 minutes’ drive from Florence, this Castle is a unique location, where every corner smells of art, history, ancient battles and fascinating legends. Imagine the welcome cocktail in the Italian garden, the wedding banquet in sophisticated lounges, after dinner and the talk at the end of the evening in the intimate and magic atmosphere of the winter garden illuminated by hundreds of candles … Then guests can continue their dreamy weekend in one of the very special apartments created inside the castle or one of the luxurious annex, a few meters away. In nearby Certaldo you can get married with civil ceremony, while for those who prefer the Catholic rite there is the lovely little chapel in the village.
