Montignano Castle dates back to the 962 d.C. and it’s an original Medieval Hamlet with a beautiful over view on the Martani hills.

Recently restored by combining the beauty of antiquity with the sophistication of contemporary design, Castello di Montignano is the ideal location for exclusive events.

For wedding receptions our Pavillon can host up to 230 guests. The stone wall halls, the Fireplace Hall and the pool park, are only some of the solutions we propose as setting of weddings inside/outside the Castle.

Ceremonies

The Castle has also a picturesque Church for religious ceremonies. Indoor and outdoor areas can become the perfect place to celebrate your Blessing or Civil Ceremonies (legally binding).

Exclusive Use

The Castle is a 4 star Hotel with 12 rooms, a spa and several indoor and outdoor rooms available for receptions and events. Hotel Services can be customized to pamper your guests even more with VIP and Luxury packages.

Banqueting

Banqueting services are agreed according to your needs. The wedding banquet is normally held in the “Pavillon degli Ulivi”, immersed in the park with a swimming pool and a breathtaking view of the Martiani hills and the majestic facade of the Castle.

For the welcome dinner, the interior of the medieval village of Montignano is preferred so not to reveal the area of the pool park where the wedding recipient will be held.

The day after the wedding we propose Pool Party ifor those who want to continue the celebrations or simply a Brunch for those who want to greet their guests.

10/10 recommendation for Castello Di Montignano!



We got married in the church on site at Castello Di Montignano in August 2023.

We had a three day celebration starting with a pasta party, the wedding day and finally a pizza party at the pool garden.

Our guests were blown away by the venue and continuously complimented the venue, food and scenery. Everyone was so relaxed and just enjoyed themselves!



We were so lucky to find a venue with a church, a pool and accommodation all on site but having Giuseppe and Nicole manage the venue was the real bonus!

We had the best three days ever and would do it all again next Summer if we could!



Giuseppe and Nicole were exceptional and went above and beyond for us over the three days, we can?t thank them enough for the experience we had.

All our friends and family are just hoping we renew our vows in 10 years? time so we can celebrate all over again!!



I cannot recommend Castello Di Montignano enough as a wedding venue, it?s really one in a million. Fantastic venue for anyone who wants to celebrate, have fun and a stress free wedding!

We booked our wedding with Castello di Montignano without visiting the venue and after one initial conversation with the then wedding planner Beatrice. We were just so impressed with their amazing reviews from Irish couples and their awards for Best Destination Wedding Venue from this site. I was an extremely anxious bride worried about everything going wrong and I found planning a wedding abroad very stressful. BUT I need not have worried as we were in the most capable hands with Giuseppe and Nicole and everyone at Castello di Montignano. It?s hard to describe how truly magical our wedding was but I?ll do my best to point out some of the ways in which they went above and beyond for us.
1. They provided a list of suppliers in Italy and also gave us the contact information for the Church to organise our religious service. We had no wedding planner so this was invaluable help to our overall planning and meant we did not really need a wedding planner to find and price the best suppliers. We booked our photographer, hair stylist, florist/decorations, transport service, extra accommodation, catering and even fireworks guy from their suggestions and they were all amazing.
2. We booked 2 nights exclusive use of the venue for our welcome party and wedding day. However as their calendar was free, we were able to check in the wedding party two days early and in total spent 4 nights in the venue which meant any last minute planning we had to do in Italy (and there was a lot! Haha) we could do right there in the venue.
3. Giuseppe, Nicole and all the team were so welcoming and accommodating AND CALM despite Ciar?n and I being a bit stressed about rooms for guests, different dietary requirements and other things we managed to worry about. But they were just brilliant with us and I am so grateful for their patience and understanding. We had just the most unforgettable stay and our wedding was like something out of a film. I can?t recommend Castello di Montignano highly enough and hope to return for a visit in the near future. It is one of the most beautiful places I?ve ever been to and filled with such wonderful people. Grazie Mille ? Leanne and Ciar?n x

We got married at Castello Montignano in October 2022, and it exceeded all our expectations.
We booked the 3 day exclusive package which was definitely worth every penny. We couldn?t recommend this package more ? we had complete use of the venue, everyone felt so at home and relaxed for the few days we were there. The staff couldn?t do more for us, we had complete use of the facilities in the castle including the spa which had a sauna and jacuzzi pool ? this was a great hit with all of our guests and could be used at any time of the day. It was the perfect cure every morning!
The whole planning process was so smooth as Beatrice is there to help every step of the way. We didn?t think it would be that easy to plan everything as we are both from Ireland, but through zoom calls and emails and our one visit for the menu tasting, we felt that everything was always covered. Mariana, the florist who works in the castle directly, also did an amazing job at bringing our ideas to life. Just from sending a few photos, and meeting the day of our menu tasting, Mariana really just knew exactly what we wanted. All of our other suppliers were recommended by the castle which was another hard part of planning a wedding from a different country but having recommendations to hand really made this and easier process for us.
The wedding day was amazing from start to finish. The whole day ran so smoothly and was so well planned out by Beatrice, she even had followed up with some of our suppliers the day before to make sure they were all set and had everything planned out with all of them too which really gave us complete comfort in everything going to plan. Every part of the day was thought through and we felt that we could just enjoy the day knowing the staff had everything under control in the background. The food was absolutely delicious, we are still hearing about how great it was from our guests weeks later!
If you are planning a wedding in Italy, we really recommend having your wedding at Castello di Montignano ? the venue, food, staff, views were all perfect and we can?t wait to visit again!

If you?re reading this, you?ve found the perfect wedding venue!

Finding a destination wedding venue can be a scary task. In fact, we looked at over 50 different places across Italy!

We eventually picked Castello di Montignano and had our dream wedding here on the 3rd Sept 2022 and couldn?t have hoped for more. Here?s why:

????Venue????
The Castle is a fairytale, offering historic charm coupled with a modern 4-star hotel experience. It has stunning views across the rolling hills of Umbria, perfect for your wedding photos. The gardens are lovely, with lots of different spaces to mix things up. The pool is big and really clean, great for guests to enjoy in the day and jump in at night!

The Pavilion is a real highlight of this place. It?s a permanent structure in the garden, with glass sides that works perfectly for the dinner and reception. It has a modern speaker system that is loud(!) and also specially designed so you can have music till late (we finished at 4am!)

The Castle comfortably sleeps 40+ (with apartments) and the rooms are a great size, all with big beds, modern bathrooms, mini-fridges and typical mod-cons.

The location of the venue is great, close to Rome and Perugia airports. You can drive from Rome in 2hrs or get a train to Terni which is less than 1.5hrs long and super easy.

???? Food & Service ????
As a 4* hotel, the Castle has its own high quality catering team, which is a massive benefit and they are also so accomodating with your requests (they even helped us have an ice cream wedding cake!)

The food and service were both impeccable throughout the weekend and honestly the quality of the food and menu choices are second to none.

The dining experience across the 3 days was consistently at a very high standard, and our guests had only good things to say.

????Price ????
This will be dependant on what you want for your wedding, but we can say that having looked at prices from other venues, Castello di Montignano is very reasonable. The value you get though, is priceless and the team will always work with you to help manage your budget, keeping things completely transparent.

??????? The team ???????
You will not find a more experienced, friendly and accommodating team at Castello di Montignano.

Beatrice is a superstar and took everything in her stride as our wedding planner. She gives you space to decide how you want it, whilst also offering suggestions based on all her experience. She was calm and supportive when we needed it and always optimistic, friendly and super organised! Giuseppe also an absolute hero, so welcoming and great fun. Marta, Mariana and the rest of the team just so wonderful and put in such incredible hard work for every wedding they host.

We simply cannot thank the team at Castello di Montignano enough for our dream wedding. It was all we could have hoped for and more!

Castello Di Montignano played home to our international wedding where we booked the whole Castle and had three days of celebrations.

The guests came from all over the world and were amazed by what they saw, what they experienced, what they ate/drank, and the wedding that Beatrice, Giuseppe and the team at the Castle put on.

My wife and I left the Castle full of happiness and love and will never forget our time shared there.

I highly recommend the Castle for a visit, a wedding, an organised party or to get a away to somewhere magical.

Ci siamo recati la prima volta al Castello disillusi, pensando di non poterci mai permettere un posto come quello. Ma con l'aiuto di Giuseppe, Marta, Beatrice e Mariana siamo riusciti a costruire un evento anche superiore alle nostre aspettative. Ci siamo goduti una giornata da sogno e i nostri ospiti con noi. Ancora enormemente grazie per tutto quanto avete fatto e fate ogni giorno.

My wife and I celebrated our wedding at this amazing venue with 50 friends and Family. We paid for the 3 day package which was worth every penny. The welcome aperitif in the Horthus garden was a beautiful setting, the wedding day itself was amazing with our ceremony on the pool gardens overlooking the hills and the pool / pizza party on the final day was a great way to finish the celebrations. The staff couldn?t do enough for you, the setting is idyllic and everyone had the best 3 days. The food was delicious and there was lots of it. We had complete exclusivity of the venue so could stay up late, use the small spa inside the hotel at free will, relax by the pool day and night. I highly recommend anyone looking for an Italian wedding to consider this venue, you won?t regret it. Special mention to Beatrice, the wedding planner who helped us plan our day and answer a million questions. We also used wedding motion Italy for our wedding video and Alessandro Mari for Photos. Both were very professional and excellent at what they do.

The venue is around 1.5 hours north of Rome or 40 mins south of Perugia, which both have airports. If you are looking to get married in Italy look no further. We will be back to visit very soon. Grazie Mille Montignano!

We got married at Castello Montignano in July 2022, and it exceeded all our expectations. We researched and visited several venues here in Italy. Castello Montignano were by far the most professional. We met several times over zoom and in person. They provided detailed spreadsheets outlining all the options and costs, helped us choose providers, and in the days leading up to the wedding they provided us with solutions for all our last minute questions and issues. The wedding day went perfectly. The food was excellent, the staff were friendly and professional, they accommodated all our guests' dietary requirements and worked with the providers of music and lighting, photography and fireworks to make sure everything ran like clockwork.

We could not be happier with them and would absolutely recommend them to anyone thinking of getting married in Italy.

Organising a destination wedding from another country is hard enough? Try doing that during a global pandemic! The odds were stacked against us from the beginning, and planning was made even harder by the ever changing Covid restrictions that meant a ton of constant stress, obsessive news checking and a very unfortunate last minute postponement from 9 September 2021 to 12 July 2022.

I am Italian and my husband is British, and we live in London. Since the first time we made contact with Beatrice, Mr. Alcini and their team in December 2020, we felt valued as clients and sure that our needs were going to be met. Beatrice stood by our side during the whole of 2021, always being available for calls and answering our emails - showing a great deal of sympathy when we had to make the tough call of postponing our dream wedding. When the day finally arrived, our expectations were not only just met, but completely exceeded.

The website doesn?t do the venue justice: we had only seen the Castle in winter when we had our menu tasting, and when we arrived there in the summer we were blown away by the sheer scale and generosity of the accommodation. The venue itself is really versatile, with a lot of different and unique areas that can be used for a variety of purposes.

Over 3 days of events, our guests could not stop complimenting the food, the venue, the facilities and the amazing pool & views. The kids had a wonderful time and made memories that will last a lifetime. The day of the wedding wasn?t without its challenges - as unfortunately we had some rain and a blackout during dinner - but Beatrice went above and beyond to make the day happen in the way we?d always envisioned, for which we are both forever grateful.

The flower arrangements created by the lovely Mariana (the Castle?s own flower designer) were wonderful and made everyone feel like they were attending a fairytale wedding. We felt well taken care of and looked after, and if we could it all over again, we wouldn?t change a thing!

To any couples out there who are considering booking Castello di Montignano as a venue for their wedding, we say GO FOR IT! You will not be disappointed, as these guys absolutely know what they?re doing and they are fantastic at it.

I can?t stress enough how magical it was, absolutely 10/10. A special thanks also to Simone and to the lovely lady who was working the breakfast shift, and of course to the rest of the team who worked super hard to make everything go smoothly.

We had an amazing wedding at Castello di montignano. We travelled with family and friends all the way from Norway to celebrate our special day at this fantastic castle. Beatrice did an amazing job. Our first meeting was over skype due to Covid and she showed us how amazing the castle was. Beatrice helped with everything and was very helpful. When we had the two days at the castle we could relax and enjoy ourselves since Beatrice had full controll of what was going to happen. Everyone in the wedding have been saying that the wedding was amazing and the castle was very beautiful. Would highly recommend Castello di montignano if you want a fairytale wedding and would also recommend to use Beatrice as the wedding planner.

Montignano will always be a special place for us and hope to go back soon :)

We had the most AMAZING wedding at Castello. It was so much better than we ever thought it could be. Beatrice is an excellent wedding planner, she really did think of everything and our 3 day event ran so smooth. She is such a lovely person and always so easy to communicate with. We organised everything from Ireland and Beatrice made it so easy. We had the Castle rented out for the 3 days and it really did feel like our own home just as Giuseppe (the owner) had said. The staff were so nice and accommodating. The food was excellent, the wedding day in particular. The best food we have had in Italy and we have been to visit quite a few times now. Marianna was our florist and our flowers and decorations were so beautiful on the big day, we couldn't have asked for better!! We had The Gloves band for our music and honestly they were amazing. We would highly recommend them. They kept the dance floor full all night!! Peggy Picot was our photographer and our photos are beautiful. She really did capture the day perfectly, especially since we were keen to enjoy the moment and not spend too much time away from everyone for photos. If your thinking of getting married in Italy, we would highly recommend Castello di Montignano. It is in the most beautiful setting in Umbria, we can't wait to go back and visit. We wish we could do it all again and we wouldn't change a thing.

Dear Shona, Ryan,
we are so thankful for this wonderful review.
Your wedding was truly amazing and the entire event was such great and an incredible party throughout the three days!
Our weddings are all tailormade and the Castle's wedding team is focused on details as they make every single event unique as our couples envision it.
We are so happy to know your thoughts on the food too! We strongly believe that the research of high quality local and national products together with the love that our Chefs put into their work creates the excellence you talk about.
It was a great pleasure to work with Peggy which perfectly captured with her photos the Day (a selection will be on our socials soon :) - and with The Gloves which entertained and made everyone dance all night! What a superb party!
We wish you all the best and look forward to welcoming you back!

My partner and I recently got married in Castello Di Montignano and I?m still digesting how magical the location, staff, owner and entire week was for my partner and I and 130 of our friends and family. We booked the venue in early 2021 and from the get go, our in house wedding planner Beatrice was simply outstanding in terms of listening and understanding our needs & wants and creating a tailored wedding celebration for us. She went above and beyond so many times for us and has the most charming, warm and helpful demeanour. We wouldn?t have had the fairytale we had if it wasn?t for her and all she did for us.

The owner, Giuseppe, is also fantastic and really went out of his way to help us create the celebration we wanted and was very flexible and understanding in any dealings we had with him. He is a great character and both he and Beatrice are a formidable team with great, warm personalities and I can?t thank or commend them enough for all they did for us, both in the run up to the wedding and even more so throughout the 3 days themselves.

Mariana, the in house florist also was incredible and so tentative to our needs and requirements and went above and beyond in terms of delivering the most beautiful decor & display that completely surpassed our expectations. She is very patient and was so flexible and helpful from the get go. Marta & Simon, the Head of Services were also truly fantastic and really helped us and our guests on site also to make sure everything smoothly and that our guests were completely at ease and comfortable throughout their stay.

The food, service, rooms, helpful and friendly staff and their attention to detail was second to none and our friends and family haven?t stopped talking about what a fairytale and experience it was for them. From the welcome aperitif on day 1, the wedding day on day 2 and the leaving pizza / pool party on day 3 - Giuseppe, Beatrice and the entire staff left no stone unturned to ensure we had the best few days of our lives. Beatrice also went above and beyond liaising with our suppliers and supporting with last minute items that cropped up and did it all in the most calm, supporting and helpful manner and we?ll never forget it. She is superwoman and the entire staff and team are truly superb. We couldn?t recommend this venue and location enough and are so excited to get back their again soon and relive the fairytale all over again.

If you want to experience a fairytale in an Italian castle with the most supportive, experienced and detailed orientated team there is, then look no further than Castello Di Montignano.

Grazie Mille for everything,
Lillian & David

Following a postponement, we were so happy to celebrate our wedding abroad at Castello di Montignano in May 2022. It was certainly worth the wait. The best 3 days of our lives. Filled with so much love, laughter and memories to last a lifetime. We are from Dublin and had our nearest and dearest travel from all around the world to be with us to celebrate our special day.

From the moment we arrived at the castle, we were made to feel so welcome and that it was ?our home?. Beatrice's relentless repetition of "The Castle is your home from the minute you arrive until you leave? and ?I am your human clock - I will come and get you when you need to be somewhere or do something? on video calls for the 18 months previously was certainly true! Our wedding celebrations involved 3 days of events; a pasta night on Day 1, the wedding day on Day 2 and a pizza and pool party on Day 3. The food and drink was delicious and plentiful! The venue itself is absolutely stunning and so picturesque. Each room in the castle is different, can sleep different numbers of people and named after previous owners of the castle. All rooms have beautiful views. We held our pasta party in the Horthus garden and then ended up inside at the bar for more drinks , singing and dancing. Our first night was magical under the fairy lights with the sun setting behind us. An amazing start to our celebrations!

We had our wedding ceremony out by the pool overlooking the stunning scenery and provided lovely variety for our Wedding Day. The setting of our Wedding Day in the Pool Park was spectacular. Mariana did a beautiful job with the flowers and decorations. We had our starters outside during the drinks reception by the pool, we ate our mains inside in the Pavillion and then we were back outside by the pool for dessert and tea/coffee. We had an incredible feast. Every course we had was phenomenal. Our celebrations continued well into the early hours and ended with family and friends in the pool. We had a pizza and pool party on Day 3. The atmosphere, amazing setting and delicious food everyday contributed greatly to our wedding being everything we wanted and it was the staff that helped made it truly special. We were blown away by how friendly and accommodating the staff were and no ask was too much for them. There was always someone there to cater for everything and their attitude was amazing. They went out of their way to ensure all our needs and the needs of our guests were looked after. Marta at the front desk was so helpful and friendly. While out in the Pavillion and at the bar with Simone, who stayed late chatting to our guests every day.

One of the main reasons we chose to have our wedding at Castello di Montignano was the kindness and helpfulness of Beatrice (the ultimate wedding planner!) and Giuseppe (the owner of the castle). We met Beatrice, Giuseppe and the team at Castello di Montignano online in September 2020 and did a virtual tour of the venue. After meeting Beatrice and Giuseppe and seeing the stunning venue online we knew they?d be able to make our day so special and memorable. We didn't know it then but the journey to our wedding day would be much longer than we anticipated. A journey which was made much easier by the honest communication and enthusiasm of Beatrice and Giuseppe of Castello di Montignano who helped us greatly with the various suppliers. When Covid hit, we slowly realised that our wedding plans for Montignano in Italy would have to be put on hold. Beatrice and Giuseppe were available at all times to jump on Zoom calls to discuss alternative dates, the realities of the situation with Covid in Italy and provide us with updates. We eventually got to visit, in person, 6 weeks before our wedding in April 2022 to do the food and wine tasting and have a tour of the venue. It was an incredible couple of days together, a special experience getting to try the different food and drink options and really got the excitement building towards our wedding. We?re so grateful for everything they did, we?ll never forget our special wedding celebrations.

Grazie Mille Giuseppe, Beatrice, Mariana, Marta, Simone and all the Castello di Montignano team.

We can?t wait to come back and visit you!

If you are planning a wedding in Italy, we couldn?t recommend enough having your wedding at Castello di Montignano.?

I only have high praises for the team at Castello di Montignano. You can tell when you work with them that not only do they love what they do, they get genuinely excited for each wedding they work on. They turn the Castello into your home during your stay and make you feel so comfortable and relaxed.

We booked the Castello from the United States during COVID and never actually saw the space in person until we checked in for our wedding week. Beatrice went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable with the grounds, the guest rooms and the wedding plans. Mariana helped bring to life our vision through her expertise in floral and design. They are true experts in what they do and are so open to making your wedding celebration unique to you.

I have worked as an event planner before, during, and after COVID and have personally experienced the many struggles that the industry is dealing with. I can say that the Montignano team has restored my faith in hospitality and event planning. To Beatrice, Giuseppe, Mariana, Simone and the rest of the team - thank you for your dedication to what you do and for making us feel so special.

Dear Gabriella, Sean,
it is always a pleasure to read these kind and lovely words.
It was wonderful to plan your wedding together and make the magic happen.
The Covid period was definitely hard for everyone, but with our Weddings & Events Team we always did our best to keep our relationship with our Brides and Grooms to be. The wedding planning and our support/ assistance continued throughout all the complexities also through videocalls and we did it all together!
Your wedding was for sure a memorable day for all us and we remember very well also your very romantic first look photo session!

Hope you will be back.
Our best wishes!

We got married in August 2021 at Castello di Montignano and we recommend it without hesitation! We fell in love with this carefully renovated castle, the Umbrian landscapes around and above all the team who are really great! Whether it was during preparation or on D-Day, everything was perfect. Giuseppe, the owner, and B?atrice, the Castello wedding planner, Mariana and Mariuxi always have a smile and were able to advise us and coordinate the smallest details.

We had privatized the place for 3 days for our guests, who stayed at the castle (there are also many agriturismo and rentals around) and all were delighted. The place is really beautiful and the staff super attentive. We felt at home and had an amazing time; it was a great experience.
Beatrice and her team are used to organizing events, working with trusted providers and everything is very organized, so it's easy to plan your wedding even remotely (which we did)! We chose to do our ceremony and dinner outdoor, in the garden, and the rendering was magical!

I recommend without hesitation whether it is to organize a wedding or just to spend a few days there. You can enjoy the spa or dine in the restaurant to taste quality Italian cuisine!

We got married on August 2021 at Castello di Montignano, the place of our dreams. We recommend it without esitation because the location is wonderfull, a very jewels in the Umbria's landscape. But there are a lots of reasons to choose the Castello di Montignano: the food is delicious, a perfect mix of typical and sophisticated dish , and the owner and the staff are very professional and kind, always ready to help you and able to planning wonderful events.
We are from Umbria, so we are very lucky to have this dreamy place near our home, but we know that the Castello is appreciated by couple from all the countries, the staff speaks language very well (not like me!). Recommended!!

After two postponements, in August 2021 we were lucky to celebrate our wedding at Castello di Montignano. The wait was certainly worth it.
From the moment we arrived, ourselves and our guests were made feel welcome and at home. Beatrice's relentless repetition of "The Castle is your home" on video calls for the two years previously was certainly realised.

Our wedding involved three days of events; a pizza night on Day 1, the wedding day on Day 2 and a BBQ party on Day 3. The food every day was delicious and more importantly, plentiful as it takes a lot to feed an Irish wedding crowd!
The venue itself is beautiful and so picturesque. We held our pizza party in the gated Horthus at the back of the Castle. Our first night was magical under the lights with the sun setting behind us. A fantastic start to the festivities. The church at the end of the cobbled street and the Pool Park at the front of the Castello provided lovely variety then for our Wedding Day and for the BBQ on Day 3. The setting of our Wedding Day in the Pool Park was spectacular. We were set up under lights in the park and were treated to an incredible feast. Every course we had was phenomenal. Our celebrations continued into the early hours and ended in the spa where the last person left for bed at 7.30am. An unbelievable day that we?ll never forget, nor will our guests any time soon.

The atmosphere, amazing setting and delicious food contributed greatly to our wedding being everything we wanted but it was the staff that made it truly special. We were blown away by how friendly the staff were and their "Anything is Possible" attitude. They went out of their way to ensure all our needs and the needs of our guests were catered for. We laughed and had so much fun every time we interacted with Martina at the front desk and in the Pavillion with Simone, who stayed late chatting to our guests every day.
One of the main reasons we chose to have our wedding at Castello di Montignano was the kindness and helpfulness of Beatrice the wedding planner and Giuseppe the owner of the castle.

We met Beatrice, Giuseppe and the team at Castello di Montignano in October 2019 and after viewing a number of other venues we decided to book our wedding at Castello for August 2020 as we knew they?d be able to make our day so special and memorable.
We obviously didn't know it then but the journey to our wedding day would be much longer than we anticipated. A journey which was made much easier by the honest communication and enthusiasm of Beatrice and Giuseppe of Castello di Montignano.
When Covid hit in 2020, we slowly realised that our wedding plans for Montignano in Italy would have to be put on hold. Beatrice and Giuseppe were available at all times to jump on Zoom calls to discuss alternative dates, the realities of the situation with Covid in Italy and to provide video tours of the castle which helped keep our excitement building.
We?re so grateful for everything they did, we?ll never forget our amazing Wedding Celebrations.

31.07.2021 ? stato magico..
Ci scoppia il cuore dalla gioia e siamo ancora molto emozionati. Il castello, tutto lo staff, Beatrice,Mariuxi ci hanno fatto vivere un sogno. Il nostro matrimonio ? stato esattamente come lo abbiamo sempre sognato, tutto era perfetto in ogni minimo dettaglio. Dal primo giorno che abbiamo scelto il Castello come location per il nostro matrimonio, lo staff non ci ha mai abbandonato. Hanno curato ogni minimo aspetto,con una professionalit? e una semplicit? da vendere. Ci siamo sentiti subito a nostro agio. Quando il giorno del matrimonio siamo attivati al Castello eravamo super agitati ed emozionati, sapevamo che tutto sarebbe stato perfetto e ad oggi posso dire che non potevamo fare scelta migliore. Quello che abbiamo provato non si pu? spiegare. Vi sceglieremmo altre mille volte.
Grazie perch? ci avete reso felici!

Matrimonio da favola!

Il nostro giorno ? stato reso perfetto e l?intera cerimonia ? risultata essere all?altezza dei nostri sogni e aspettative per la bellezza della location, la particolarit? del borgo, lo staff cordiale, gentile, sempre disponibile e attento.
Siamo stati cos? bene ed anche i nostri ospiti sono rimasti cos? contenti del Castello da volerci tornare e perch? no, anche volersi sposare li, considerata la bellezza della nostra festa (parole loro). Abbiamo scelto la location tramite una video chiamata Zoom per la professionalit? e competenza di Beatrice che ha compreso l?idea che avevamo di quel giorno.
Ci siamo fidati e direi che ? stata la scelta pi? in linea non solo con le nostre aspettative ma proprio ha sposato il nostro gusto e stile.
Quando per la degustazione ci siamo recati presso il Castello, dal vivo ? stato ancora pi? bello e la visita ha superato tutte le nostre aspettative.
La chiesa del borgo magica e anche l?esperienza condivisa con Frate Mauro di Massa Martana che ha celebrato il nostro matrimonio lo ? stata!
Ci siamo goduti il nostro matrimonio in tutto e per tutto, avendo il Castello tutto per noi abbiamo concluso la nostra festa in Spa.
La sera prima del matrimonio hanno coordinato un apericena nell?hortus molto suggestivo. Il giorno dopo abbiamo salutato gli ospiti con un brunch in piscina e la cordialit? e disponibilit? di tutto lo staff, la bellezza del posto e la tranquillit?, il clima perfetto, spingevano tutti a non voler pi? andar via..
Abbiamo soggiornato l?intera settimana presso la struttura che da subito ci ha colpito per la bellezza, motivo per cui abbiamo vissuto tutta l?esperienza del borgo e goduto di ogni servizio. Al Castello si soggiorna bene, piscina spa e servizi eccellenti, lo staff ti fa sentire e stare bene e noi abbiamo apprezzato ogni cosa! Grazie mille!
? stato un piacere conoscere Giuseppe, Beatrice, Mariuxi, Martina! Torneremo presto sicuramente ricordando con affetto il nostro soggiorno!

Ci siamo sposati al Castello nel 2020, un anno che ci ha costretto a posticipare la data inizialmente scelta e ad avere tanti interrogativi sulla riuscita o meno dell?evento. Lo staff del Castello ed in particolar modo la weedings manager Beatrice e il proprietario Giuseppe, hanno saputo aiutarci e supportarci in ogni decisione e scelta. Il risultato ? stato un matrimonio stupendo al di sopra di ogni aspettativa. La location stupenda, l?organizzazione impeccabile, le decorazioni e i fiori, complimenti anche alla fioraia Marianna, esattamente come le abbiamo sempre immaginate. Hanno saputo cogliere esattamente i nostri gusti e le nostre esigenze. Tutti i nostri invitati sono rimasti incantanti dalla location e meravigliati dalla professionalit? e straordinaria organizzazione, per non parlare della bont? del cibo e della spettacolarit? della torta!
Consiglio vivamente questo posto perch? a me e a mio marito hanno permesso di vivere la favola sempre sognata!

5 star wedding!! Oh yes, all deserved for the infinite availability, the exquisite cordiality of all the staff and for the generosity that Giuseppe, Beatrice and Mariana have shown us.
The location is simply wonderful, warm and welcoming as well as the staff we met and with whom we decided to celebrate.
It goes without saying that our every wish was fulfilled in the best possible way and that, despite the difficult period in which we decided to get married (we got married last August 2020, organizing the event during covid lock down), we did not have any problems in organizing.

Beatrice, our wedding manager, with her sweetness and cordiality, put us at ease and followed us from the very first days and throughout the preparation period, as well as during the wedding day: her punctuality and safety was the support we could count on in every moment of difficulty.

Giuseppe (the boss) is undoubtedly one of the most cordial and inclined managers to satisfy the requests of his customers we've ever met: not only did he meet us from all points of view without ever remaining on his own, but he contributed enormously to solve all those organizational, administrative and economic problems that may arise during the preparation of such an important event.

And then Mariana (our wedding flower designer) has outdone herself! The setting and floral decorations were exactly as we had imagined them: very fresh flowers, well distributed and rightly balanced, embellished even more an already wonderful day.

Finally (but only in order), we want to thank all the staff, from the chefs to the barmen to the restaurant managers: you were great in all the preparations you created for us!

From the moment we contacted Castello di Montignano and spoke to Beatrice we knew we were in good hands. The professionalism she showed throughout the organisation of our wedding was simply 10/10. We organised our wedding in 9 months and everything was plain sailing from start to finish.
The entire team at the Castle were absolutely fantastic over the 3 days we stayed there and we simply could not find one fault. The food, the hospitality, the service, the venue was everything we could have hoped for and more.

Our guests are still thanking us for such a great wedding/holiday but we couldn't have pulled it off without all the team at Castello di Montignano. It's very hard to put it all into words but if you are looking for a wedding venue that has something for everyone then this is it. We could not recommend it enough and we are looking forward to returning again next year!

It was truly a stellar experience.
Grazie mille

An incredible venue for a wedding abroad. We brought 40 people from Ireland, but they can cater for much larger weddings too. It's not cheap, but it is superb value for money - we had 3 days of quality time with our closest family and friends - it was like a mini holiday! The days before and after the wedding mean you can have a BBQ/pizza party/pasta party, and relax with your guests. Beatrice is the wedding planner here, and she is the most organised, capable person - born for this job! No detail was forgotten, and she had everything under control at all times, I really never felt worried, despite the fact that we booked the venue without even visiting! The staff are exceptionally friendly and warm, and go above and beyond to make you feel at home at all times. Nothing was too much trouble. I wouldn't change a thing, and can't recommend it enough to other Irish couples thinking of a destination wedding.

Where do I begin! CDM is such a special place.

Once we got engaged, it was a no brainer to get married in Italy, it was always a dream for both of us. When searching for venues we stumbled across a ?friend of a friends? wedding on Instagram and were blown away by the secludedness and relaxed atmosphere of the venue. This was exactly what we were looking for ? a hidden gem in the rolling hills of lesser known Umbria, perfect for an Irish party!

We contacted CDM in October 2018, and despite still being very busy with weddings Beatrice was very accommodating and patient ? as you can imagine we had so many questions, and scheduled several calls with her over the course of October and November before making a final decision on dates etc. Beatrice is a breath of fresh air, very friendly, creative, extremely organized, and most importantly she listens to exactly what you would like to achieve. Needless to say, straight away we knew we wanted to work with her as our wedding planner at CDM.

We are both from Ireland but living in Dubai, and wanted to organize a wedding for a hundred guests in Italy. Organising a wedding abroad can be quite stressful, but Beatrice eased all of our fears and there was honestly never a moment she wasn?t on top of it all from start to finish!

We visited the venue for the first time in December and loved the location, only an hour and half from Rome, it really is set in the heart of the Umbrian countryside, it is very quiet, secluded and so picturesque. It was great to meet both Beatrice and Giuseppe in person and discuss it in detail. Giuseppe?s love for excel really streamlines the process!

Meeting Giuseppe was insightful, it helped us understand the history of his home that has been in the family for generations. For him it is important for people to feel at home in the relaxed luxury of CDM, and as far as we can see he has definitely achieved that.

When we visited in April to do the menu tasting we met Orlando the chef and his sous chef Daniel who came to talk us through the menu. As with everything in CDM it was such a personal touch. Marco and Simone who manage the bar and restaurant even remembered us from our December trip and were so friendly and helpful in choosing the wines.

We wished to have a church wedding so Beatrice also put us in touch with a ?document manager? called Isabella who was wonderful and incredibly helpful. She even drove from Assisi to meet us in CDM in April. Isabella assisted with sourcing an English-speaking priest, and guided us through all of the religious and legal paperwork involved in a Catholic wedding ceremony in Italy. We would still be wading through paperwork and translations if it wasn?t for her!

We got married at the end of August, and can honestly say we had the best few days of our lives. It is even more beautiful in the sun. We rented the castle for three nights and filled it to the brim with family and friends. The refurbishment of the castle is really quite unique and elegantly done. The rooms are all beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We also rented the apartments attached to the castle which are quite convenient for families with children. Renting the entire venue was great because there were no restrictions.

When we checked in everyone headed down to the pool for lunch and a swim. Following the church rehearsal the night before the wedding we organized a welcome night for all the guests in the Horthus maze garden behind the castle with food and drinks. This was a great evening and really set the tone.

The wedding day itself ran very smoothly, we were lucky to avoid rain in the distance but Beatrice was all over it with plan B in the event it did affect us. The fireplace room is really spacious for all the bridal party to get ready. Mariana really did an amazing job on the flowers. We were so glad she did all the decorations from the church, to table arrangements to the cake decoration. The outdoor dinner with fairy lights looked spectacular. I would highly recommend her. Our guests are still raving about the dinner, Orlando and Daniel did a wonderful job there was so much amazing food! Cutting the cake outside with sparklers per Beatrice?s last minute song suggestion of ?Amore? was actually one of our favourite moments.

We cannot speak highly enough of the band either. They were recommended by Beatrice and frequently play at CDM. They also performed music in the church. They were so professional and fun, and Gabriel was a pleasure to deal with. We partied hard until the early hours while Beatrice and her team managed the buses to transport everyone home safely that wasn?t staying at the venue.

On day two we had a Pizza Pool Party with a Sax player and DJ. This was great fun, and the perfect way to chill, relax and enjoy the best of CDM? We didn?t want it to end!
All of our guests had an incredible time, they are still thanking us and were overwhelmed by the hospitality they received at our wedding, but the thanks is truly deserved by the Team at CDM. 4 months on and our guests still remember all the staff by name, and I think that is testament to the incredible job they do in CDM.

A massive thank you to Beatrice, Giuseppe, Isabella, Marco, Simone, Orlando and Daniel and all the Team for the most amazing memories and few days that we will never forget. It really is the castle of love.

You really need to visit it to experience how special it is.

Castello di Montignano stole our hearts. You need to visit this place to experience how special it is. The hotel is picture perfect with the most stunning views. We were so impressed when we came to visit, we had to have our wedding there, over all the other venues we visited.

Not only is the Castello an amazing place, but each and every member of staff made our stay so special and memorable. They are all so friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly.

The food was sublime (each and every course) and the cocktails we had, were some of the best cocktails we've tasted.

Beatrice, the wedding manager, (with help from Selena, her assistant) was invaluable in the build up to, on the day of and after our wedding. The organisation of everything was superb. We had many long phone calls, often late at night (to fit in with my working hours) which always made me feel better about the progress of the wedding preparation. There were also many last minute changes which she dealt with easily. She is very lovely and was always happy to help.

It was also lovely to meet the owner of the hotel, Giuseppe, each time we visited. He always took the time to chat to us and helped to make our wedding the most perfect day/weekend.

Our family and friends loved each of the rooms they stayed in. All good sizes with beautiful bathrooms and lovely details of history. They, and all the other wedding guests, still comment on how great they thought the wedding was.

We had the most perfect wedding at this venue and can't wait to go back to visit our second home.

We had first visited the Castello five years ago, in Autumn October. We knew from the moment we laid our eyes on the venue, it was the one. The venue has captivating views and beautiful settings, which matched our vision for a summer wedding.

Fast-forward five years, and here we both are married and over the moon with our experience at the Castello. We are based in London and decided to have an intimate destination wedding, which had its challenges but with the help of Beatrice and Selena, the process was made simple.

We had the venue exclusively for two days. Our guests were able to have free access to all amenities provided by the venue. Which really set the tone for our wedding.

We had a pre-party before our wedding, where guests were treated to fantastic food provided by the castle and an abundance of wine and Prosecco, it really was magical.

The day of the wedding was such a whirlwind of excitement and emotion and Beatrice did a fantastic job of keeping us to time and moving things along when needed.

The team at the Castle is fantastic! From the chef to the waiters, to Selena and Beatrice. Let's not forget our barmen, the night before who made the famous cocktail named the Marco. Everyone still talks about the Marco cocktail to this day. It was fantastic!

Highlights of the wedding were:
The location
The setting
The Staff
Food.
Wedding cake

The Castello did a fantastic job of meeting our dietary requirements, which consisted of a lot of vegan eaters and non-pork eaters. Everyone loved the food and were well fed. The food corners were superb and really added that special something to our day.

Also our last minute order of a wedding cake two weeks before the wedding which, was beautiful, and everything I wanted and more. They were very flexible when it came to last-minute changes and also managed my expectations very well.

Overall the experience, the venue, and the staff were fantastic. We cannot praise them enough. If you are looking at this place as a potential wedding destination don?t hesitate to book. I stayed in numerous castles through my time in Umbria and none matched this.

It truly was a fairy tale come true.

Castillo Di Montignano is a beautiful little castle set on top a hill with breathtaking views of the rolling Umbrian countryside.

We discovered the castle through our wedding planner and were amazed from the very moment we drove up to the car park.

The very lovely Beatrice (the castles Events Coordinator) gave us a tour of the castle. The location ticked every box we were looking for. From the peaceful rolling hills of the Italian countryside to the majestic but intimate settings of the castle gardens. Beatrice was very informative and helped us paint a clear picture of what every area of the castle could be used for.

On our return visit for the menu tasting, Beatrice once again made us feel very welcome and taken care of, even though she had a large group of other couples to attend to.

The menu tasting itself was full of great dishes and wines to choose from. The waiting staff were very attentive and were able to answer all of our questions regarding dietary needs.

Giuseppe (The castle owner) was around during the tasting to answer any question regarding the venue itself. He was very friendly and approachable and insisted that we contact him directly if we had any technical questions, which was very reassuring.

Overall, the welcome dinner and wedding day were a huge success. Our guests were giving us compliments on the whole experience for weeks after the wedding. We can?t thank Beatrice, Giuseppe and the whole castle team enough for being so accommodating to all of our requests, making us and our guests feel so welcome and helping us create unforgettable memories. We will definitely be returning to Catello de Montignano again for our anniversary in the future.

If you are planning a wedding or a romantic weekend away, this 100% the place to book.

We would thoroughly recommend Castello Di Montignano as a wedding venue. Beatrice, the events planner, is amazing. From the outset she was incredibly responsive, organised and great to work with. She was always one step ahead, thinking of things we hadn?t and making great suggestions. She helped us to organise everything - food, decorations, flowers, document management, make up etc. Over the wedding weekend, she ensured that everything ran smoothly and made the time very special.

The venue itself is beautiful and exceeded our expectations. The staff over the wedding weekend went out of their way to make everything very special. The food and wine was amazing quality, so many yummy courses and great value for money!

Many of our guests commented on how amazing the venue, food and staff were, with some saying it was the best wedding that they had ever been too! We would thoroughly recommend the Castello and staff to anyone considering a wedding in Italy. We will be back!!

Castello di Montignano is a picturesque and magical place. We held our three day wedding at the venue in May and it was the best three days of our lives. We first visited the castle on the recommendation of a friend in February 2018. We fell in love with this magnificent venue and village immediately (despite the fact that we brought the Irish weather with us). The venue itself is idyllic surrounded by rolling Umbrian hills. The Castello has been restored impeccably by Giuseppe and our guests were in awe at the castle. It really and truly is a special place.

Planning a wedding abroad can be stressful and emotionally draining but not if you have Beatrice, Selena and the team guiding you every step of the way. A very special mention must go to Beatrice, she is incredible and made everything so straight forward and easy. From the moment we met Beatrice we knew we were in safe hands. There was never any wish that was ever too great nor any request that couldn?t be accomodated. Beatrice has recommended supplier lists for all your wedding needs. For music, we chose Gabriel Canelles and his band, The Blenders. Gabriel coordinated all the music for our wedding day. He is fantastic and he and his band (including the blowing section) we?re brilliant. Seeing as we are big fans of The Killers, they even went out of their way to learn Mr. Brightside which was a brilliant surprise. We picked Andrea Dambrosia and his team as our photographer and videographer and we are delighted with the photos and video. The guys captured every moment and we love how natural our pictures turned out. We definitely would recommend getting the drone, the aerial shots are magnificent! Mariana and her decorative team brought all of my wife?s ideas to life. Mariana is super, she offers creative ideas and recommendations and we were so happy to let her and Beatrice to get creative and run with the decorations. The result far exceeded our expectations. The flowers, the table settings and centre pieces were magnificent. The hanging candles and flowers of the top table were magical.

The food prepared by chef, Orlando, is divine and he prepared what can only be described as a true Umbrian feast for us over the three days. My wife is gluten intolerant which in most circumstances can be restrictive, but Orlando was completely understanding and sympathetic as his family members also are coeliac. Orlando produced a gluten free menu from scratch for my wife ensuring that she enjoyed a true Italian meal. It really made her day.

The one thing that truly makes Castello di Montignano special is the people. Every member of staff makes you feel at home and treats you like a king and queen. Marco and Simone must get a special mention, they were the last men standing looking after guests at the end of the night and the first ones there in the morning, always lending a helping hand. Beatrice and Guiseppi we can?t thank you enough for everything you did for us over the 16 months lead into our wedding.

We couldn?t recommend Castello di Montignano more. The food is exceptional, the floristry team are fantastic and the staff treat you like family. Thank you to Beatrice in particular for creating such a special experience for us and our guests. Choosing Castello di Montignano for our wedding venue was the best decision we?ve ever made and we would love to do it all over again!

We got married at the Castello on 1st September and simply had a magical time.

The venue itself is stunning ? a beautifully renovated building in a stunning location overlooking the Italian valleys. It is set in lovely hamlet of buildings ? some lived in by local residents ? and was a beautifully rustic location for us to hold our civil ceremony. The rooms in the Castello were also lovely, and the spa was a real bonus.

One of the key reasons we picked this venue was the fantastic glass pavilion that meant our ?plan B? for dinner felt as if you were outside (rather than inside a dark stone building, which was the plan B for all the other venues we saw). In the end, due to a windy day we used the plan B for our reception and it worked perfectly.

The staff at the Castello are amazing ? Beatrice is incredibly good at her job as wedding manager ? and although at times it took her a little while to respond due to the number of events she works on, we were always comfortable knowing she was on top of everything and on the day we didn?t spend a single moment thinking about logistics. The rest of the staff (apart from 1 quite rude receptionist) were all brilliant too, and made us and our guests feel like VIPs.Their English was also great.

Finally, the food and wine were absolutely amazing, with many of our guests saying it was the best they?d ever had at a wedding. A particular highlight was the outside aperitivo (we chose meats and cheeses) and the gelato after the dinner.

A stunning venue which meant we really did have the most magical wedding.

We could not have asked for more from Beatrice and her team! We had the castle from the Friday afternoon through to the Monday morning.

Every single person went out of their way to make sure that whatever we, or any of the guests needed, it was taken care of.

Beatrice did a fantastic job helping us plan the event and then making sure everything went smoothly on the big day!

We had the best day and the most amazing wedding weekend, everything from the venue, staff, accommodation, food and general activities were perfect!

From the moment we first saw pictures of the Castello di Montignano online, we knew we wanted to celebrate our wedding there. We visited the castle in winter and fell under its charm straight away.
One week ago we went back for our big day and we were blown away by the sheer beauty of the landscape in the summer and by how amazing the castle looked, adorned with the floral decorations.
Our heartfelt thanks go to, first and foremost, Beatrice, our incredible wedding planner, for the attention to detail and dedication she put into organizing our incredible event. We would also like to thank: Irene and Cristina, the make up artists at Acquadegna, for the fantastic job they did for the bride and her girls; Chiara at the reception for her good humour and assistance; the amazing Chef for his wonderful menu and for being able to accommodate the special requests of some of our guests; the florists who did an incredible job on the floral decorations, and finally Giuseppe and all the staff at the castle for being wonderful.
It has been an amazing experience we will never forget and we look forward to visiting the castle many times more in the future.

Myself and my husband got married in the Castello in August this year and I could not recommend it more. We first visited the Castello in January 2017 after it had been recommended to us as a venue. We loved our stay and after viewing a few other places decided to go with the castle. What we liked about the venue was that everything happens in the one location. The church is on site or if you want a civil ceremony they do that too, then you just walk around the corner for the drinks reception and meal. Beatrice and Giuseppe were really welcoming, professional but also seemed really fun.

We went back to the Castello in March for our menu tasting, the food and wine was delicious and the chefs were so accommodating. They cater for vegan, vegetarian and any allergies, all of the food both at the tasting and on the wedding day was delicious. Unfortunately the pool park was closed for renovations at that time but we had seen lots of pictures and videos on their website

During the planning process Beatrice was amazing, she must cater for so many couples but always got back to us within a couple of days and nothing was a problem. My godmother did the flowers for us in the church and the bouquets so we just wanted to order the flowers, this was not a problem. They were really flexible whenever we wanted to change. Ramona did a brilliant job with the fans for the church, seating lists and table names and the cake that the team put together was exactly what we wanted.

We stayed in the Castello from the Tuesday before the wedding (which was on a Friday), Beatrice organised a bus transfer for our wine tour (Roccafiore wines), she booked a restaurant for us and our guests in Todi one evening and we had a dinner in the Hortcus garden at the Castle the night before the wedding which was delicious.

On the wedding day Beatrice and her team managed everything perfectly and we didn?t have to worry about anything. She organised transfers to collect and drop all our guests back, which isn?t an easy feat with 120 Irish. The bar staff on the wedding and day two were amazing, so much fun and laid back while also providing excellent service.

We had a pizza and pool party for our day two. The food was delicious and there was so much of it.

When planning the wedding some of the costs can seem expensive but we felt we got such brilliant value for money, with more food than we could eat, lots of gorgeous wine and so much fun. We would do it again in a heartbeat and can?t wait to go back to visit.

We had never visited or seen the place before choosing Castello Di Montignano. The first time we saw the castello was at our actual wedding so we solely relied on their pictures, descriptions and reviews. Luckily we were pleasantly surprised and loved the castello. The place was even more beautiful in person than in pictures and videos. It was clean, beautifully decorated, charming with the perfect ambience for a romantic italian wedding! We had the pleasure to deal with Beatrice and I can confidently say that she is the reason our wedding was a success. She was extremely responsible, quick, informative and competent. Without her I would not necessarily have chosen the castello. She held our hand through the entire process of our wedding. From food to decoration she made sure all was according to our plans. I told her the look I wanted and she made it happen. We hosted 26 adults and 8 children for 5 days at the castello and our wedding went perfectly.
