Weddings in Tuscany

in a Medieval Hamlet

Celebrate your wedding and organize the reception within a striking scenic setting.

“GARGONZA, located in the heart of Tuscan hills, is a thirteen-century fortified medieval village reminescent of the toy forts that children enjoy building on the floor, spending hours moving around the tower or the well, enclosing houses inside a thick wall which no enemy can break through…”
From psychanalyse de la maison – Olivier Marc

The Ceremony

Symbolic or religious

If you choose a symbolic ceremony you can decide to have the wedding in one of our gardens inside the village and as a back up in case of bad weather we always have our former olive press room which can be used as well.

If you prefer a religious ceremony with civil effects you can choose the Parish of SS. TIburizio & Susanna located inside the village which can accommodate your guests.

If you decide to have an official civil wedding you can also choose our town hall renaissance cloister or the garden facing the historic townhall of Monte S. Savino which is 6 km away from the village of Gargonza.

The Banquet

Catering and Restaurant

After the ceremony a congratulation cocktail can be held in the olive garden or at the swimming pool facing the medieval tower. Dinner is usually served in the restaurant panoramic room located just outside the village. With nice weather we can have dinner set outside under string or vintage lights in our restaurant courtyard.

Catering is organized by the Ristorante La Torre di Gargonza which is owned by the same family of the Hotel. Our typical tuscan cuisine features home made pasta, meat on the grill and typical tuscan hors d’oeuvres. We serve typical tuscan food which you would get for a local italian wedding. We can choose together a menu following your ideas and desires and we are prepared for dietary restrictions or vegetarians, celiac and vegan options.

Table setting is decided together and we have included in the package a selection of table cloth, wooden tables, wooden or covered chairs. Chandeliers of our reception room are included. For weddings set outside we can arrange fabulous light settings with the collaboration of our music and lights partners.

Il pernottamento

Apartments and Rooms

All apartments and rooms are located inside the village. We have various sizes of accommodation, from classic rooms to superior cottages or apartments in order to satisfy all kinds of family affinities.

Breakfast is served inside the village, facing a garden. A wine bar is located inside the village and it is open usually in the afternoon for drinks and snacks.

The restaurant and the swimming pool are located outside the village and are walking distance from the village.

The gardens inside the village are a beautiful location for your congratulation cocktail after the ceremony. Once in Gargonza, it is all walking distance and you will have all guests stay together for your wedding reunion.

On day of arrival we generally organize a welcome dinner. It can be either typical rustic tuscan buffet or a pizza buffet. You can choose among our gardens inside or outside the village.

A cash bar is usually held inside the former olive mill and music is allowed for the party.

The day of the wedding, while the bride is getting prepared in her room or in a common living area together with her bridesmaid, guests may enjoy a light lunch under the Pergola of our swimming pool or take daytrips to see the artistic beauties of Tuscany (Siena and Arezzo).

In the afternoon the ceremony can be held either in the Church of Gargonza or a symbolic ceremony can be organized in one of our gardens. We can take care of arranging a priest or a protestant minister.
