Villa Palazzola is a beautiful, magical place. I had been there on holiday when I was a child and had always imagined it to be the perfect place for a wedding. So when my now husband and I got engaged, I was quick to arrange a trip to Palazzola to show him how lovely it is - thankfully he agreed. The wedding was wonderful. The great thing about getting married at Palazzola is that everyone stays there for three nights which means you get to spend real quality time with all your loved ones and all your friends and family get to know each other over the weekend. Plus everyone gets to have a little holiday too. We were sure to give all our guests plenty of advance notice (over a year) so they could get cheap flights. Palazzola is really near to Ciampino airport where the cheap airlines fly to, so it is quite easy to get to. All our guests LOVED Palazzola and were bowled over by how beautiful and special the place is. Everyone loved relaxing by the pool and on the terrace - there was a great atmosphere all weekend. We were also incredibly lucky with the weather - it was perfect all weekend, which meant we could have all our meals outside which was wonderful. The food is also DELICIOUS - the pasta in particular is really tasty and the staff at Palazzola are able to cater for all dietary requirements. The service and wedding party after was all perfect too. The chapel at Palazzola is very simple and pretty and as everything is on the same site, it makes it all so simple. The wedding meal was yummy (I definitely recommend the profiteroles and the lamb was gorgeous too), the speeches all worked well and we LOVED dancing the night away with the outdoor disco under the moonlight (the DJs that Palazzola recommended were great). The sore heads the next morning were seriously assisted by a dip in the pool followed by a massive bowl of pasta! The staff all weekend were really helpful and Joyce was great throughout the process. There is quite a lot of organisation involved in organising a wedding abroad and although there were moments in the build up when I got a bit stressed, it was all worth it in the end and I loved every moment once we arrived there! Money wise it was really good value. We live in London and what we could get for our money in London for a wedding as opposed to what we got for our money in Palazzola does not even compare. We loved it and wish we could do it all over again. Our guests all had a wonderful time too. Thank you to all the staff at Palazzola for giving us such a special weekend that we will remember forever. We certainly did it in style and I would recommend a Palazzola wedding to anyone.

My husband and I had the most beautiful wedding at Villa Palazzola. The weekend was perfect, Palazzola has an abundance of rustic charm and natural beauty, with stunning views and a tranquility that really seeps in! Joyce and the team went out of their way to accommodate our vegan/ vegetarian wedding, and to ensure that every aspect of the day ran smoothly. Many of the venues we looked at had a sense of ‘conveyer belt weddings’ and I wanted something different and more personal. We had so many comments from friends and family to say how special they felt our wedding was, I can’t recommend this venue highly enough!

Thank you Lizzie! I remember your menu well, and we were very happy to accommodate your needs. We look forward to welcoming you very soon again at Villa Palazzola.
Absolutely stunning location to get married. All the staff are extremely helpful and go above and beyond for you. There was a party of 25 of us and everyone raved about villa palazzola. I would encourage anyone thinking of having their wedding here to 100% go for it. You won't be disappointed!

Thank you Donna for your lovely review! It was a pleasure indeed to assist and accommodate your wonderful wedding at Villa Palazzola. I am hoping you get to visit us in 2019.
It’s been 5 years since we got married at this very special place and we couldn’t have chosen a better venue for our big day. everything was just perfect. The little chapel is beautiful, the grounds and views are stunning and the staff are so fhelpful. In short - Lovely location, lovely food, lovely friendly staff, spotlessly clean,. The whole place is amazing. Would highly recommend..
