A movie set 16th-century villa in Chianti
Chosen by Bertolucci for the movie 'Stealing Beauty' and featured in the James Bond 'Quantum of Solace'
This villa stands on the top of a hill of the Chianti Classico, covered in vineyards only 5 km from Siena.
It is a venue that will surprise you for its historical value and its exceptional landscaping: the entrance alley decorated with century-old cypresses and potted lemon plants, the garden boasts a unique Green theatre where the famous dramatist Vittorio Alfieri staged some of his tragedies, an ideal location for your wedding ceremony! On the ground of the villa they do also allow civil weddings and catholic weddings in the property private chapel.
Wedding receptions can be hold outdoor in the large botanical gardens with panoramic views over Siena or in one of the three frescoed indoor halls.
According to the number of guests, the service can be organised in the park or inside the villa (maximum seating capacity of 108 people in one of the reception areas). Our suggestion is to have the cocktail inside the walled Herb Garden and the dinner in the lawn in front of the Open Air Theatre , ideal location for a dance party after dinner and for any possible entertainment.
In case of bad weather, we can set up the cocktail in the various lounge areas on the ground floor of the Villa. The dinner and the party in case of more than 100 guests will take place inside a tent especially mounted in front of the Open Air Theatre where another tent could be mounted for dancing. With a number of 100 guests or less we can also organise the dinner in the historical Ball Room on the first floor and the party in the ground floor’s reception area.
In the property there is also a fabulous and stylish guest house with two suites, elegantly refurbished.
