Romantic 16th Century Villa in Lucca Hills

Special Feature: Legally Valid Civil Ceremony can be held both inside and outside the Villa.

Set in its own park, which extends over 9 hectares, this lavish 16th century villa boasts both a naturalistic English garden, with rare trees from around the world, and a perfectly symmetrical Italian Garden, adorned with 100 year old lemon trees as well as manneristic fountains and marble statues. The park also features a romantic outdoor theatre made up entirely of box hedge trees.

Against this splendid backdrop, you have your choice of hosting your wedding either in the romantic Lemonry or inside the luxurious main Villa.

The Lemon Tree Greenhouse, a 17th architectural masterpiece, used to house the lemon trees from the Italian Garden during the winter season, makes for a most original reception site. Enjoy a moonlight cocktail on its lush lawns. Then dine inside, under the long dangling vines which romantically drape the ceiling, while listening to the murmur of the ornate wall fountain of Bacchus, God of Wine. During the summer months, the large wooden doors are left open, bringing the fragrant breezes of the garden inside the cool stone walls. With its unique architecture that blurrs the boundaries between exterior and interior, the Lemonry is the ideal location for those who love the idea of having an outdoor wedding but don't want the stress of worrying about what to do if the weather turns bad.

Alternately, for those that prefer the allure of the majestic main Villa, the reception can be held in the beautifully frescoed “Hall of Curtains”, where the walls are painted with trompe l’oeil curtains, dancing nymphs, and geometric designs. You can enjoy your cocktails in the picturesque Italian Garden, surrounded by cascading pink geraniums and the melodic sounds of the sparkling fountains; then retreat inside the Villa for an elegant dinner and reception.
