Venue of the month – December

December is a magical month and we so wanted to present a venue with a special atmosphere – not only this month but all year around.

Villa Barberino is located on a hill top in Meleto, a small village in the Province of Arezzo. As you enter the hamlet and walk through the grounds to the reception it is hard to believe that the property was in ruins just over 20 years ago. The owners have lovingly restored the buildings and their passion for hospitality comes across as you speak to them. We will work with Tiziana and her team to ensure your special day is the day you have been dreaming of.

Villa Barberino is unusual in the fact that it is possible to have a civil or a symbolic ceremony in the grounds of the villa, and there are no charges for the exclusive use of the villa.

The reception can be held either indoors in the restaurant, or outside in the courtyard or in front of the villa. There are plenty of opportunities for stunning photos with a terrace overlooking the Chianti countryside, as well as the Italian gardens, the woods, and the wine cellars which are over 1000 years old!

During your guests’ stay it is possible to organise wine tasting, as well as sampling the locally produced olive oil, honey and cheese, and guests can enjoy the pool, the gardens or walks in the woodland. Accommodation for around 100 people is available in the hotel and apartments, and due to the layout of the complex it is also suitable for smaller groups of 30-35 people who wish to be together in relatively private settings.
