When you are a wedding planner it’s quite normal that during low season you take advantage of your free time to visit some new venues: new managers, new services ( spas, bigger restaurants, gym rooms ) and new rooms as sometimes the new property decide to change the style of the venue for something more stylish.
One of the last I’ve been visiting is Villa Gianluca, a lovely farmhouse converted in a perfect wedding location: the main building called Leopoldina has 5 double rooms all decorated in pure tuscan country style with wood ceilings and terra-cotta all over the rooms.
On the ground floor the big breakfast room is the place where guests can enjoy the homemade cakes of mamma Lucy, owner of the estate. These 2 rooms can be converted in a perfect space for a wedding dinner up to 70 people in case a plan B is needed.
Outside you have at your disposal 2 swimming pools, a very nice one with 2 gazebo (one for each apartment) to lay down under the sun and a bigger one close to the covered area that you can also use for an pre-wedding dinner with friends.
Outdoor you have 2 covered areas that are suitable for a romantic ceremony: one under a green arch on the top of the pool and one directly in front of the pool suitable for smaller groups.
The owner is one of the friendliest persons I have ever met and no request is too much for him: feel free to ask for an advice of where to go for a romantic dinner with your husband to be or a visit to a spa to pamper your self the day before the wedding. There’s one positive point of this venue that sometimes I have to hide to future husbands: it’s only 5 minutes away from the biggest tuscan mall, the Valdichiana Outlet so perhaps worth a visit during your day trips around!!
If you are looking for a civil ceremony the closest town hall is Lucignano that is also one of my favorites: their Sala Consiliare is one of the nicest I’ve ever seen and their prices are really worth a visit to the Valdichiana. What else? If you are thinking about getting married in Tuscany with a reasonable budget just drop me an email and I’ll be glad to send you more info about this exclusive property!!
