The word here is originality. Original architecture and design, original wines, original and genuine local foods. Combined with a breathtaking view, this very private, secluded resort is the perfect location for a group to relax, have fun. The perfect Italian wedding venue. For celebrating with Country Weddings Italy, of course!

Relais de Charme - A Hillside Wedding Venue with a Sea View
I’m in love, and that’s official. I’m sure you will be too after you’ve read this post!
Where have I been? Away scouring the corners of Lazio (and a little corner of Umbria too, I confess) for some GORGEOUS wedding venues to offer here at Country Weddings Italy. Take a seat. Here is the first…..
This place is truly a little corner of Paradise. Set on a hillside facing west down on to the magnificent northern Lazio coastline, the colours of the natural surroundings are truly a sight not to be missed. The sunsets are also apparently magical. A photographer's dream!
The resort has been created from a group of old agricultural buildings, which the owner, Signor Gianfranco, bought some years ago and lovingly renovated and recreated to his own personal tastes. Signor Gianfranco has a background in the architectural and theatrical scenery creation sectors, and his expert touch is reflected in the extremely original interior décor. He's known to be a wonderful cook too, and he has even offered to spend time with our guests teaching them the basics of Italian pasta-making.
The resort has an indoor and an outdoor swimming pool, spa, Jacuzzi and Hammam area. This really is a place for a super holiday, with friends, rejuvenating mind and soul, and tastebuds (!), as the food is amazing.
Outdoors, the resort’s grounds are filled as far as the eye can see with Mediterranean vegetation, olive groves, woodland and vegetable gardens, the produce from which is used in the resort’s daily cuisine.
The resort has private indoor function rooms for receptions, or when the weather permits (a large part of the year here!) it is possible to host wedding receptions and parties outside on the terrace. If you prefer a more natural touch, tables can be placed in the olive grove, reserved for your exclusive use, by the pool, all lit by candles and lanterns once the sun goes down.
The hotel has a total of 20 rooms, making the atmosphere discreet and refined. It is off the beaten tourist track and the owner strives to maintain the exclusivity of both the place and its style. Civil wedding ceremonies are possible just a few miles away, in a castle museum (officially a municipality wedding hall) right by the sea. Great for photos!
