Tuscany is certainly an iconic setting for a destination wedding. Narrowing down the fantastic choices in the region is the hard part. We’ve recently returned from the area where we were seeking out an amazing Tuscany wedding location. Allow us to assist you in selecting one absolutely special spot for your big day!
We visited Il Borro, a sprawling 1700-acre property owned by Ferruccio Ferragamo (who lives beside his guests). Located about 50 minutes from Florence, the estate features not only a private villa perfect for buyouts, but a borgo (ancient village) that houses approx. 100 guests in beautifully-appointed apartment-like hotel suites.
This Tuscany wedding location is perfect for intimate weddings. Take over the villa and sleep 20 of your closest friends and family. You’ll enjoy private indoor and outdoor swimming pools, chef-prepared meals in your own formal dinning room and even an in-home gym and sauna for your days indoors. What more could you ask for?!
For larger groups, book the borgo hotel rooms that are housed in a medieval village dating back to 1039 (updated with all the modern amenities and luxuries you could want, of course).
The rooms are wonderful, but it’s the grounds that make Il Borro so special.
With multiple pools, shops, and fine dinning restaurants on the grounds, this is one place you don’t ever have to leave.
You’ll even find acres upon acres of vineyards and olive groves from which the property makes their own wine and olive oil. Tour the grounds by horseback, bike or foot. Then take a peek into their art gallery, complete with a Picasso and the private Ferragamo collection.
Wine taste, ride, take a cooking class, and don’t forget to enjoy the spa too! My personal favorite is a heated couples room with jacuzzi. You won’t regret spending your afternoon here relaxing as newlyweds.
Il Borro keeps you busy if you want to be, but allows for a completely unplugged, quiet and utterly relaxing experience too. With so much to offer, your visit is really what you make of it.
This is a honeymoon haven in the heart of Tuscany and a slice of destination wedding heaven encased by Cyprus trees, olive trees and grapevines too. Your search is over for that perfect Tuscany wedding location.
