Today it's time to showcase another venue that we at Country Weddings Italy have been lucky enough to find, visit and get to know. This country hotel resort lies in the hills of northern Latium, just a few miles from one of the region's largest lakes, Bracciano, and close to local sites with Etruscan and Roman ruins.
Antonello and Marina, the couple who own and run the resort are two of the most helpful people we have met while searching for our quality suppliers and vendors. They really like to take care of their guests, no request seems to be too much trouble, and they call their work their favourite hobby!
The venue itself is top quality, with beautiful, natural grounds, a large open-air swimming pool, a top-quality restaurant,a large terrace for "al fresco" meals, a wine bar and lots of space for sun-bathing, taking a stroll, or just generally relaxing. The owners supply guests with bicycles for exploring the local area and offer cookery courses to their guests on request.
Guests can stay in double bedrooms, studio apartments or cottages, choosing self-catering, half board or full board, all at extremely reasonable prices. Weddings held here receive the owners' utmost attention. Antonello is also the resort's chef, having finally managed to turn a lifetime's passion into a full-time job after leaving his executive management position in a multinational company some years ago. Couples can choose to have their wedding reception meal indoors or outdoors around the beautiful swimming pool, while dancing and music can continue until late at night in the winebar. Antonello has also been know to lend his vintage sports car to the bride and groom to travel to the local wedding hall!
This definitely a venue which has an excellent price/quality ratio, with guaranteed full attention from your hosts and the beauty of the surrounding scenery.
