The Perfect Setting For Smaller Weddings

Hill side setting with beautiful vistas of the Colli Bolognesi, the Emilian countryside, this authentic locanda dating back over 50 years offers warm, family hospitality and renowned local cuisine. The cosy restaurant is famous for regional specialities using locally grown seasonal produce.

Breath-taking views from the outdoor swimming pool and gardens whilst your wedding reception and 5 course dinner may be held on the stunning panoramic terrace beneath the hill top church.

Beautiful, well designed and appointed rooms including the wedding suite leading directly onto the pool and featuring authentic stone walls, original brick work, and wood beamed ceilings. Perfect rooms, exclusively for your guests including a sumptuous country breakfast including eggs and bacon.

Your legal signing ceremony is held in our unique, romantic, medieval Registry Office nearby. Salvina completes all the relevant documentation and legislation for you in advance … no stress! Whilst your symbolic wedding ceremony performed by our English-speaking Celebrant may be held either on the panoramic terrace beneath the hill top church or by the swimming pool.

The wedding reception can also be held at our unique, original Palace Gardens venue, medieval village palace and castle with its adjacent medieval registry office.

Find Out What Makes A Specialo Wedding Truly Special With Our Individual Viewing Visits Offer

Most of our clients have commented that our photos simply cannot do justice to our stunning venues. But don’t just take their word for it!

We offer one or two day visits in luxury spa accommodation at a preferential rate of £35 per person per night.  This includes breakfast, a wine sampling dinner and a visit to one of our exclusive venues. Time permitting we’ll also take in a vineyard and wine-tasting tour.

There is a huge selection of flights available from UK to Bologna and we do, of course, meet and greet you at the airport.
