Rising in the heart of a tiny town on the edge of Lake Maggiore is this stunning Abbey attached to a beautiful complex; ideal for both wedding ceremonies and receptions in the most romantic surroundings. 

The Villa is beautifully enhanced by a large park in which alternate Italian gardens, trees and flower beds, rose arches and spacious lawns adorned with trees. The location is divided into several rooms that allow  your wedding to unfold flawlessly. There is a banquet hall, a chapel, a large park, the court, and large porches, from which welcome refreshments and cocktails can be elegantly laid out for guests.

There is also a space dedicated to car parking, easy access, surrounded by a beautiful hedge of white hydrangeas, so as not to disturb the view of guests.  

The reception rooms offer a warm and refined atmosphere while the gardens and park are absolutely breathtakingly beautiful and a delight to explore.

Should you prefer to hold your ceremony in the frescoed church, it can accommodate up to 100 guests.

Wedding Info

Wedding Reception
From the Park you have direct access to the very large reception room decorated with a vaulted ceiling with exposed brick, retaining the characteristics of what were once the stables of the ancient abbey, a true masterpiece of rustic and elegance of those times. Along the walls are wide, bright windows decorated with the crests of the Cardinal's which used to make the abbey their home.

The banquet hall can accommodate up to 140 guests. 

In addition to the main hall, there is a second sitting room, equally elegant, which can be used either for musicians and dance floor and holds up to 40 additional guests. 

You can choose from a wide range of menus and customized place settings and linens by the best catering services, who cook on site, using the premises and the equipment made available by location.

Wedding Ceremony
For Catholic weddings, the ancient Romanic church, simple and harmonious in structure fits in perfectly with the places and buildings that surround it and is topped by a bell tower and a mighty Roman tower which dates back to 1282. In the private chapel the bride and groom can celebrate the wedding in the greatest intimacy in a particularly charming and romantic atmosphere.  Of course a Catholic rite can also be done in the gardens!

Civil ceremonies can be performed nearby and Protestant or symbolic weddings can be celebrated in the gardens.
