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.

Our wedding was incredible!! The staff looked after us from start to finish and we were there for 6 days. Can’t recommend them enough. If you want the full works for a destination wedding and want to have the most beautiful and romantic wedding then this is the venue. All my guests are already looking forward to a reunion next year!! :D

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!! Grazie Mille

We just had our wedding at the Castello and it was an absolute dream! The venue is stunning, the food amazing & the thing that really makes this place so great is the staff. They couldn’t do enough for us and it made our wedding day what it was - a special thank you to our planner Beatrice who did the most amazing job! So many of our guests have commented that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. We are so sad that it is over but cannot thank you enough for making our day so so amazing - there are no words to say how truly great it was! If we could give 100 stars we would! Love Patrick & Laura x

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 are a couple from the United States who got married at the castle. We did not visit the castle prior to the wedding, and while we had high expectations we weren’t totally sure what to expect. Upon our arrival Beatrice and the team at Montignano immediately put us at ease. All of our wishes for the wedding were followed through with. The rooms, scenery, food, wine, spa, and staff were all wonderful. Our guests had a great time. Everything exceeded our expectations! We highly recommend Montignano!

We had the most magical fairytale wedding at the castle. The castle, the staff, the setting, the service - everything was perfect. Utterly incredible. Giuseppe, Beatrice and the team created the weekend of our dreams. Nothing was too much trouble, everything worked like clockwork and all our guests said it was the best wedding they had every been to. Just a huge thank you!

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.
