Weddings at Castello di vicarello

An intimate luxury resort, this 900 year old castle in the Maremma countryside boasts storybook views and authentic Tuscan comforts at every turn.

The obvious charm of Vicarello's honey-colored facade and perfumed gardens is complemented by thoughtful nuances to enhance every guest's experience...a duo of valley-facing infinity pools, a Balinese hut for massages, yoga and personal training, secluded dinners beneath centuries-old olive trees.

Castello di Vicarello is not just an off-the-beaten path retreat overflowing with rustic elegance, it's a way of life that immerses you in la dolce far niente so significantly, it leaves a permanent impression on your heart. 

Thank you to Koman Photography for partnering with us on this venue guide.

The details...

Offering a peaceful respite from the hustle + bustle of city life, Castello di Vicarello is a medieval castle nestled amidst olive groves on a secluded Tuscan hilltop between Rome and Florence. Couples looking for a genuine Tuscan countryside experience for their celebration will find ultimate happiness here. After all, the property's thoughtful restoration lends itself to multi-day events with each chapter unfolding in a different setting, building upon the overall experience hour by hour. 

A welcome BBQ by the infinity pool, a ceremony by the vegetable garden the next day, followed by an aperitivo on the terrace and a wedding dinner in the grand field... Wrap the weekend up with a sendoff brunch by the olive grove pool and you have yourself one unforgettable fete! 

9 luxurious suites accommodating up to 22 guests are available to be rented, each with their own distinctive styling and bric-a-brac from all over the globe. Think velvet-upholstered furniture, old family photos, vintage magazines, marbled bathrooms and balconies that beckon you to lounge with a glass of wine overlooking the cypress-studded valley and sparkling coastline in the distance. 

Family-owned and managed, Vicarello's approach to organic farming and sustainability is one to celebrate. Traditional Italian fare using local and seasonal ingredients is prepared by none other than Aurora Baccheschi Berti, whose cookbook My Tuscan Kitchen has made waves in the culinary space. Guests indulge in such dishes as wild boar with olive-oily-aioli, carbonara with favas and peach crostata to name a few. 

Additionally, couples can indulge in unique experiences with their guests on the days surrounding the main events (or enjoy some much needed one-on-one time instead). Truffle hunting, wine-making, leather workshops, cooking classes, olive harvests, horse riding and hiking or bicycling through a series of picturesque trails are all potential activities for your itinerary.
