How much does a wedding in Tuscany cost

Castello di Gargonza is located in the central part of Tuscany, one hour drive south of  Florence in heart of the Val di Chiana, at 500 meters above the sea level between Arezzo and Siena.

Tuscany is considered one of the best destinations for weddings and we will tell you a bit more our point of view on costs related to a wedding in Castello di Gargonza.

We have been organizing destination weddings since 2000 although Gargonza is active as an historic hotel since 1972. We are not an usual wedding venue because Gargonza is a village hotel with rooms and apartments all nested inside medieval walls and a thirteen century tower.

To view our costs you have to consider accommodation, food and use of spaces.

Regarding accommodation we include always a large buffet breakfast, everyday cleaning and change of linen every 3 days. Towels and courtesy set are replaced upon request and we include swimming towels as well.

Regarding food we require at least two meals. One welcome dinner on day of arrival which includes either a rustic Tuscan buffet or a Pizza dinner with pizza oven. We serve generally a buffet with typical dishes like homemade lasagna, aubergine parmigiana, Tuscan cold cuts and cheese and many other items. We always include a vegetarian option and we are prepared for gluten free and other dietary restrictions. Welcome dinner is served in one of our gardens inside the village or at the swimming pool garden. We can also organize a BBQ set in the terrace of our restaurant located just outside the walls of the village.

On the wedding day we usually organize a congratulation cocktail after the ceremony followed by a full italian meal with hors d’oeuvres, two pasta dishes and a main course with side dish. Pasta is always home made in our restaurant and usually meat is on the grill. We can prepare cocktails with Tuscan fingers set in one of our gardens for a 1 hour and half aperitif with prosecco, spritz, white wine and a non-alcoholic cocktail.

Open bar is set after the dinner with dancing and music curfew is set at 2,30 am. A full open bar always includes unlimited drinks, beers and wines and cocktails.

Concerning symbolic or civil ceremonies we have various tariffs regarding the rental of our gardens and commons areas inside and outside. For religious ceremonies in the village there is a public catholic church named SS. Tiburzio e Susanna and we can arrange it for you.

We don’t have a venue fee but we require a minimum stay and a minimum number of guests, especially in the high season. We can accommodate up to 100 people in our rooms and apartments inside the village and we can cater up to 200 people in different locations in and outside the village.

Regarding costs of rooms we vary from € 150,00 to € 190,00 per night for two people with breakfast included.
