Rustic Chic Lakeside Wedding Venue at Country Weddings Italy
Today we’d like to show you one of the locations that we visited recently and have decided to include in our range of Country Weddings Italy wedding venues. This 346-acre estate evokes a truly rustic chic atmosphere: it is a fully working farm that stands on the shores of a small lake just 30 minutes north of Rome. The farm owners have developed a restaurant renowned for the quality of its food and a farm shop selling all their own produce. The restaurant uses the farm produce in its kitchens; it even grows its own wheat to make the pasta!
The venue also offers accommodation for guests, in both double rooms, or beautiful self-catering apartments, created from the farm’s refurbished hay barn and stalls. Anybody attending a wedding can make this a real holiday opportunity, staying around to enjoy the lakeside beach and bar, sailing boats, swimming, horse-riding and even cookery lessons.
Weddings here take on a bucolic style. The wedding reception decor and floral designs reflect the natural country setting, using local wild flowers and colours in keeping with or complementary to the environment. Couples can even choose to seat their guests on hay bales during a symbolic ceremony down by the beach, and after the excellent food served at the wedding reception, it is possible to hold an after-dinner beach party to continue celebrations until the early hours of the morning!
Daniela and I love this place, and the friendly family team that run all the estate activities. This is also a restaurant where I can already vouch for the quality of the food, I’ve already enjoyed Sunday lunch here with the family, eating and enjoying an excellent glass of local wine, and lazing by the water’s edge.
