Tuscan delights

Tuscany wedding

Romance, scenery, art, culture, food, wine. These are probably the words you associate with the region of Tuscany. But this is only the beginning. The vibrant province of Tuscany has so much more to offer!

The cities of Florence and Siena are breathtaking hubs of renaissance art and culture. The surrounding towns and villages in the classic countryside are littered with cypress trees, olive groves, vineyards and chestnut forests. A world unto itself. A way of life with seemingly undisturbed farming communities that have been joined to the land for centuries. With each visit you experience different people and cultures. You stumble on to amazing villas, towns or hamlets that never made it onto the tourist trail. It’s almost as if you’re the first person to make such a discovery.

Every person benefits from the different sights and experiences during their time in Tuscany. For us Tuscany is quite simply one of the most relaxing places on earth – even when we are working here. Some believe that the landscape is like nowhere else on earth; while others are completely taken in by the food, the wine, the people. In any event your guests will thoroughly enjoy themselves in a multitude of ways.

Many writers are making their fortunes by writing about their Tuscan experiences. They paint an idyllic and enticing picture of the region which is broadly true. Their mistake, however, is to create the assumption that a person can only fully appreciate Tuscany by living there. We disagree.

You can also experience Tuscany by having your wedding there!

Tuscany’s geographic design

Tuscany is a province in Italy that is roughly half the size of England. ‘Typical Tuscany’ is landmarked by its central hill area that rises up between Florence and Siena. An area that has managed to ensnare the hearts of romantics and artists, and now tourists, throughout the centuries. An area known for its classic rolling hills, cypress trees, hill top villas and dense chestnut forests.
