Holiday villas in Italy, the ideal venue for intimate weddings in the era of Covid

With bans and restrictions imposed by Governments around the world in a drastic attempt to contain the spread of Covid-19, it is no surprise that private holiday homes saw a surge in requests by brides and grooms looking for an intimate wedding venue, which could ensure safety, sanitation and compliance with the number of people allowed to gather.

Love is always in the air, luckily, and the pandemic has perhaps postponed but not discouraged couples to tie the knot.

Getting married in Italy is an enchanting dream for many couples, captivated by the sweet taste of a Mediterranean lifestyle, delicious food, balmy weather and the prospect of dining under olive trees and starry skies.

Our carefully selected villas in Italy, the land of love, have been chosen for their accessible location and proximity to desirable destinations, experience in organising private events and weddings, luxury facilities and amenities and tailor-made services.

A destination wedding in Italy is the perfect opportunity to create the most memorable experience for both you and those partaking in your celebrations.

Once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale
