Wedding Testimonials

We are very lucky that we can count all of our Brides and Grooms as personal friends, who return year after year and who recommend La Villa to their friends for their weddings. These are some of their comments:




'Our wedding has already been a while ago, but the memories remain very alive. It was an unforgettable weekend at La Villa, full of emotions, joy and laughter. The beautiful setting, the unique atmosphere, great food and perfect organisation made our wedding truly the best day of our lives.

Thank you so much again for your hospitality.'

Matthias and Valerie August 2013

'Thank you all so much for your fantastic help in making our wedding such a wonderful occasion. Everything was amazing. All of our guests had an unforgettable experience and are talking of returning for a future trip.

Our wedding day couldn't have gone any better. So, once again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!'

Mark and Hayley May 2013

'From hair appointments and florists through to vineyard visits, gift bag treats and wrangling Italian drivers to be on call for two days, Chris and Nicola were involved in every step of making our wedding special.

Even an unseasonable storm failed to put a dampener on the party and the truly Herculean effort that transformed a last minute marquee into a beautiful dinner venue was beyond anything that could have been reasonably expected. La Villa is a magical and beautiful venue for a wedding weekend and Chris and Nicola the best guides to the area that you could hope for.'

Sander and Claire September 2012

'To the unbelievable staff of La Villa, thank you so much for a truly unforgettable wedding weekend. We really could not have imagined a more perfect time – a stunning location, warm and gracious hosts and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere that felt more like a home. We really did not want to leave and La Villa will always have a very special place in our hearts.

We will always remember the sun rising over the hills of Mombaruzzo in the early morning quiet and setting in the evening in a breathtaking explosion of colour, Nicola painstakingly preparing by hand a myriad of delicate tea lights to set the perfect tone for our wedding reception, Chris effortlessly and with good humour handling any crisis, Martin’s sensational culinary delights and the smiles of our closest friends and family as we danced arm in arm into the early hours of the morning.

Thanks you so much for making this day everything we hoped it would be. We look forward to coming back to La Villa as our new family grows.'

Rob and Louise July 2012

'We have just celebrated our wedding at La Villa, in July 2012, with 30 of our closest friends and family and have had the best days of our lives. We had a clear vision of our wedding being a relaxed affair, in beautiful surroundings, with lots of opportunity to just spend time with our loved ones. Our wedding ended up being that and so much more.

Chris, Nicola, Martin and the whole team ensured that not only us, but our guests felt really looked after and we experienced a relaxing atmosphere, amazing hospitality and a truly magical wedding. All of our friends and family have commented on what an perfect time they had, with everything exceeding their expectations and all of them mentioned how great Chris and Nicola were. I'm sure many of them, along with us, will be going back to celebrate more special moments in our lives. Carl's dad mentioned that is was the best wedding he had ever been to, so thank you again for making our special day so amazing!'

Carl and Kim July 2012

'“Possibly the best wedding we have ever been to” were some of the comments made to us by our guests! We could be bold and say that this was all down to us but we would be lying, as much of this was down to the relentlessly hardworking and attentive owners, Chris and Nicola.

We first visited La Villa while travelling around various parts of Italy in an attempt to find a suitable wedding venue. As soon as we drove up the rose lined drive and stepped out into the beautiful courtyard garden, we knew we had walked into somewhere special. The building and rooms have been expertly refurbished and decorated into a beautiful boutique hotel that effortlessly blends contemporary style while keeping true to its heritage and surroundings.

Starting months before the actual day, we were in contact with Chris and Nicola in order to meticulously plan every aspect of our time at La Villa – right through from handling the florist, booking hair appointments (with the fantastic Johnny Pink!), decorations, entertainment, menu’s, transport - literally everything! They were always one step ahead, thinking of things we hadn’t even thought off – going well and beyond the normal call of duty.

What we especially liked was the fact that we could tailor our wedding completely to our own taste. There was no ‘cookie cutter’ approach and we had free reign to bespoke every detail making it entirely unique. This allowed us to stamp our own identity on the weekend while following a formula that had worked in the past. What was particularly impressive was how the venue was transformed for every event – from the welcome drinks by the pool, informal pizza and prosecco evening under the pagoda during sunset to the wedding day reception and finally the Sunday BBQ – varying the décor making it feel special each time guests arrived.

On every occasion the food was absolutely delicious – freshly sourced and prepared by the talented chef Martin. He provided fantastic advice and worked with us to create the perfect wedding day menu to our own taste. This was well complemented by Nicola’s amazing knowledge of local wines - which were all a bit too well tested by us beforehand!

Our guests were made to feel incredibly welcome in what felt like a ‘home from home’. So much so that some of our guests became a dab hand at making their own drinks after a few late nights, embracing the afterhour’s honesty bar policy and there were no raised eyebrows when they decided to take a midnight dip in the swimming pool!

This all made for an incredible few days resulting in the wedding of our dreams.

Thank you so much.

Simon and Sian June 2012

We would like to express our sincerest and warmest THANKS to you for making our dream wedding come true! Everything was perfect - exactly as we imagined and dreamed our wedding to be - and even more! We knew after visiting La Villa for the first time that the place would suit very well for the kind of wedding we wanted to have. But it wasn't only the place that made it such a fantastic event - you did it with your extremely welcoming and warm hearts. We felt more like home than at a hotel - well, in a somewhat upgraded home :-)!

Big thanks also to Martin, who's food has received lots and lots of compliments from all guests! Here is what one of them wrote: "I thought the guys at the villa did a fantastic job – particularly with the food, which everyone I spoke to agreed was amazing."

Please pass our regards and thanks also to the rest of the staff: Elli, Alessandra and Halima for their always smiley faces, delicious tuna salads and bruschettas and the best ever lattes; Freddy for finetuning the amazing garden for the wedding, the ladies who kindly kept our room clean and to everyone else too!

We had such an amazing time and want to keep reliving every minute of it - THANK YOU for making it a perfect day and week!

Fraser and Essi July 2012

'Our wedding on the weekend of September 24th 2011 wás the mind blowing event we only could have dreamt of. We and our guests took La Villa as our second home the minute we walked in. La Villa simply connects you to all best things Italian soil offers: interior, garden, wines, food, weather, views, etc. Plus it deliberately disconnects you from all sorts of Italian ‘drama’ due to the wonderful and caring hands of owners Nicola & Chris and master chef, Martin. These guys are absolute 100% wedding pro’s. They REALLY know best both on functional as emotional matters with their stunning wedding track record and compassionate energy. There is however one huge problem. You might want to get wed for a second time...'

Jelmer and Annemarie September 2011

'When I proposed to Danielle in 2009 she already had a pretty clear vision of how and where to get married (I know, I should have asked her years before...). Anyway, her idea was to get married in Piemont with family and friends and have a party for a whole weekend, all outdoor in a nice setting. I liked the idea at the beginning a lot, however, the more I thought about the effort and input that organising a three day wedding abroad will require, not to speak of the language and cultural barriers, the more sceptical I got. Nevertheless, we started to look up a few hotels in Piemont but again, the more we visited, the clearer it became to me that we will do the wedding back home. But then - I was close to throw the towel - Danielle found La Villa and on the first day of our visit, actually within hours, after we had seen the place and the surroundings and after we had met Nicola and Chris it was crystal clear to us - this is the place, the setting and the support we dreamed of. And it turned out to be even better than we ever could have dreamed of! Thank you so much for these most amazing, wonderful and unforgettable days...'

Claudio and Danielle September 2011

'When Chris, my now husband, proposed to me early 2010, we had about one and a half years until the our big wedding day. I manage an events team and obviously wanted everything to be perfect at a high standard, with lots of attention to detail, so researching top locations was my main goal - it was all about the place where the magic would happen. After half a year we had finally found the magical place: the La Villa Hotel. The location is grand, all our guests are still talking about it. Chris and Nicola, the owners, are amazing people who do everything a million percent right, and always with a lot of attention to detail and their hearts fully involved. I learned that for a wedding you can only do so much for planning, the magic around it has to happen, and that's something you can't buy. But you can make sure it's all set up for it, and at La Villa, with Chris and Nicola, it just turned out magical, perfect and unforgettable.

Thanks guys for the most memorable fairy tale wedding we could have ever dreamed of, you two and your whole team are simply wonderful!'

Chris and Daniela August 2011

'We really had an amazing weekend, from start to finish, it was just perfect and everything exceeded our expectations. The setting of the Villa is truly spectacular, lounging by the pool is a great way to relax for any bride and groom, and the stunning views of the surrounding vineyards really are breathtaking. Our wedding day itself was picture perfect. The sun was shining, the food was amazing and the staff so friendly and professional. We would like to thank Chris and Nicola and all their staff for a truly amazing weekend.'

Tim and Ellie September 2007

'We had a fantastic time over the last couple of weeks and can't believe just how amazing our wedding was - so thank you all again.

They could not have done more to help us with our wedding celebrations and the whole event was so memorable due to their attention to detail.'
