“Perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2011

My wife and I had our wedding reception at Villa Toscana and stayed as guests for two nights. It's a spectacular location, a beautiful property and Margherita and Giorgio are both superb and very welcoming hosts who know and love Whitianga.

Margherita and Giorgio were impressively detail oriented in helping us to plan a bespoke wedding reception for 60 people. All of the team at Villa Toscana really went above and beyond to make our day a special one for us and all of our guests (including giving special attention to children and elderly relatives in attendance).

Part of Villa Toscana's magic is just quietly getting everything perfect and being there at just the right times. The power went out for a short time in the whole area during our reception, but without missing a beat, hundreds of candles appeared inside and out and the momentum of the evening was kept up (including one of our guests playing their piano while the music was off!).

The Villa is in a truly beautiful spot, surrounded by native bush and with incredible views from the terrace out across Whitianga and Mercury Bay. We really could not have imagined a more perfect location for our wedding day.

The apartment where we spent the night was charming, with all of the furniture brought back from Italy. The breakfast served in our room was amazing. We also loved the outdoor spa pool which is hidden amongst the bush with an incredible view across the bay.

We definitely plan on returning to Villa Toscana one day to visit Giorgio & Margherita and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for an unforgettable and romantic destination.

On the absolutely beautiful Corremandel Peninsular , over looking Mercury Bay , a comfortable half day drive even after a 25 hour flight from the UK.
Villa Toscana is 5 star in every way. Hosts welcoming but never imposing. Lavish breakfast sitting on private terrace. Great advice on local beaches / restaurants.
Clean / comfortable / luxurious , the best accomodation we stayed in during 5 weeks in NZ .... but at a price. Would thoroughly recommend a stay at Villa Toscana as long as you can afford it. Will & Jackie
