Our son and his fiancé chose to have their wedding at this wonderful villa. The wedding was a Hindu ceremony as our daughter-in-law is from Indian descent. With the assistance of Kate and Richard from the villa, the complex ceremonies went without a hitch over the three days. This was no mean feat as about 100 guests were included from England, USA and Europe and with different cultural backgrounds.
The villa, cottages and chapel within the grounds are all beautiful with very high standards of sensitively restored and beautifully presented accommodation. The gorgeous surroundings and views make for a very romantic setting for a wedding and the buildings remain cool inside without the aid of air conditioning due to the stone construction and deep window reveals. Extra cooling can be had through use of the two immaculate swimming pools.
For those interested, Richard is knowledgeable on the history of the building, which is quite fascinating.
The surrounding towns of Lucca, Pisa, Florence and the coast are all within reasonable driving distances and are well worth visiting.
Our thanks go to Kate, who organised the wedding and Richard who organised supplies and services needed in support. No requests seemed to much for either to deal with including the provision and erection of a timber frame for the Mandap (basically a stage for the enactment of the Hindu ceremony) for decoration by the family.
Altogether a fabulous experience which will never be forgotten by all those in attendance.
Thank you Villa Catureglio!
