Wisteria-covered walkways in the month of May

Venue of the month – March

It was a miserable February morning the first time we went to visit Fattoria di Mandri with one of our 2014 brides, but even though it was raining the Villa, the grounds and the panoramic views were wonderful, and it was not difficult to imagine how stunning it would be  in the sunshine!

If you are looking for a Medici Villa in Tuscany with self-catering accommodation options for around 55/60 people, this is an ideal location. The owners live in the villa which they have furnished with style and elegance, and the building and grounds will impress your guests at every turn. The main villa and its private gardens can be rented for the wedding reception, and the 10 apartments and 2 cottages in the small hamlet in the grounds of the villa itself can be used by guests who have travelled to Italy to share your wedding celebrations with you. It is also possible, upon request, to rent bedrooms in the villa itself.

Flexibility is one of the key features of this venue, and while the villa is elegant it also feels homely and welcoming.  Marina, the owner is happy to assist with the organisation of buffets and meals for up to 50 guests, while  it would be necessary to use a catering service for the wedding reception. The grounds provide endless solutions for your wedding photos and reception, perhaps serving an aperitivo on the terrace as the sun sets to the front of the villa or under the porch to the rear, followed by a sit-down meal in the gardens with panoramic views over the Arno valley, or by the pool before returning to the private gardens with their wisteria-covered walkways and lawns for your guests to kick their shoes off as the live band starts start to play.

Another bonus is that the mayor from the town hall of Reggello would be prepared to come to the Villa to officiate at your wedding ceremony. You  just need to decide on which part of the villa and its grounds are the best place to hold your ceremony!
