Relais in Valgiano

Sitting prettily, high above the plain of Lucca, this recently restored farmhouse boasts a gourmet restaurant, 11 individually decorated luxury rooms, as well as a panoramic pool and retractable covered terrace for scenic alfresco dinning.

What more could you want? Well, it seems that the Relais has managed to get the much coveted legal proxy necessary to hold legally valid civil ceremonies on their grounds. That means you can have an outdoor civil ceremony with sweeping views of the entire Tuscan countryside, go back home, and have the wedding recognized in your home country. This also solves a lot of peoples transport problems, as once you have all of your guests in one spot, you don't need to move them between ceremony site and reception site. Plenty of charming bed and breakfasts are located within a 2 km walk of the hotel and can be used to house friends and extended family.
