Your Best Borgo for a Wedding in Tuscany
Many couples want to plan their wedding in Tuscan territories.
The reasons they do this are many, and we have talked about this several times in our blog, and this time, we want to propose an idea a little bit different than renting a villa for your wedding.
Tuscany is also known for its old renewed villages or hamlet called “Borgo” (plural Borghi). Sometimes, some of these places belong to an owner who -fortunately for us- has decided to rent the property to celebrate events and weddings.
Can you imagine an entire old renewed Tuscan Borgo in your possession for one day or more? We think that this is more than a cutting-edge wedding; this is something very uncommon and rare. As your wedding planner in Tuscany, we can arrange your destination wedding in one of the most exclusive restored Borgo in the Tuscan land.
We want to give you a complete list of all the most enchanting villages (Borghi) in Tuscany.
It starts from the Arezzo countryside where the evocative medieval fortresses of Anghiari, Castelfranco Piandiscò, Raggiolo, and Loro Ciuffenna, famous not only for their fairy-tale landscapes but also for the suggestive cornices of the historical centers, where towers, palaces, and Romanesque churches cross.
Continuing to the heart of the Casentino, one of the most suggestive valleys in Tuscany, we find Poppi, the ideal village for a dip in the Middle Ages, where you can visit the splendid Castello dei Conti Guidi, from whose tower you can enjoy a breathtaking view.
Among the rolling hills of the Valdelsa, we find Montaione, famous because nearby is the Sacro Monte di San Vivaldo, where the plan of the sixteenth century Jerusalem was reproduced on a reduced scale, so much to be nicknamed the little Jerusalem of Tuscany.
We move to the Pisan hills to discover Montescudaio, perfect for a delicious stop to taste a glass of Montescudaio doc. wine.
Simultaneously, in the green Val di Cornia, not far from the Etruscan Coast sea, we meet the medieval village of Suvereto, dominated by the Rocca Aldobrandesca, located at the highest point of the country.
The Lucca area boasts three beautiful villages in Italy: Barga, Castiglione di Garfagnana, and Coreglia Alteminelli, three medieval fiefdoms that still maintain their original features, perfect for discovering the traditions and unspoiled nature of the Apuan Alps.
In the peaceful countryside of the Terre di Siena, between the Crete and the Valdichiana, we find the ancient village of Buonconvento, situated along the ancient Via Francigena, but also San Casciano dei Bagni, with its thermal baths, the castle, and the medieval towers, and Cetona, a splendid village of Etruscan origins where it will seem like going back in time.
Unspoiled nature and wild landscapes are the stylistic features of the Maremma; in this unique land that ranges from Monte Amiata to the beaches, there are beautiful villages, such as Montemerano, protected by a triple circle of medieval walls, or Santa Fiora, a mountain town that it preserves a splendid Peschiera wanted by the noble Aldobrandeschi family.
Not forgetting Pitigliano and Sovana dug in the Etruscans’ tuff to discover the graveyard and the majestic testimonies of these ancient people, and again Capalbio, the old village from which you can admire the sea. So now that you have an idea of what Tuscany can offer, just gather your ideas and if you’re thinking of an intimate-rustic cutting-edge wedding in the Tuscan countryside let us know your thought and send us a free inquiry!
