Rustic Castle Weddings in Tuscany

Castello Petraia is situated just outside of the village of Strove in one of Tuscany's most beautiful areas, near the delightful town of Monteriggione in the area of Siena. Nearby accommodations include Castel Bigozzi and a small hotel in town that sleeps around 12.


Wedding Reception - 2018
 
  • Max of 80 people
  • Wedding hosting fee
    • 2 - 35 people = € 1200
    • 36 - 80 people = € 1800
  • Menus start at 90 euros (See Reception costs page)

Type of Ceremonies:
  • Legal civil ceremonies can take place at one of the 3 places below:

    In the town hall of Monteriggioni
    Capacity: ONLY B&G and 2 witnesses with translator and wedding planners. 2 chairs are included. (this is 5 minutes away - about 5 kilometers) Note: This type of ceremony would be done when you are also having a religious blessing or a symbolic non religious ceremony with family & friends on the grounds at Castel Petraia

    Abbadia Isola (a medieval Abbey along the via Francigena)
    chairs included (this is about 5 minutes - about 2.5 kilometers)

    The Abbey of San Galgano (picturesque ruins of an ancient 13th century abbey)
    Capacity: up to 200 people but they only provide 60 chairs + a wood table for rings, bride's bouquet, etc. (this is about 30 minutes away - about 30 kilometers).

  • Blessings/Symbolic are ceremonies without legal or civil restrictions, and therefore are performed by a Master of Ceremonies, rather than a clergyman or state official. The ceremony suits couples who have already had a civil or church ceremony, but is also perfect for those who wish to renew their wedding vows for an anniversary. Your blessing can be celebrated in various locations on the grounds.

  • In the gardens overlooking the hills the grounds can be used for spectacular outdoor ceremonies with views over the Tuscan hills.
    Capacity: 80 max (white chairs) Plan B - in the event of bad weather, your ceremony & reception will be in the dining room area.

  • Protestant ceremony without legal effects with English Speaking Minister (Church of England/CofE)
    Note: This can take place at the Protestant Church in Siena or on the grounds of Relais Castelbigozzi. In this case, you must do the legal civil wedding at the Town Hall prior to the religious ceremony. This can possibly be done in the morning of the same day as the religious ceremony or day(s) before. The church in Siena is a 45 min drive - about 40 kilometers.

  • Jewish ceremonies can take place at Castello Petraia

  • Catholic weddings can take place in one of the churches in Abbadia Isola (this historical Borgo is part of commune di Monteriggioni). The churches are all about a 5 minute drive - within 5 km away.


Distance from major airports:
  • Perugia airport (80 km) about 90-minute drive away, is the closest airport, with regular flights to London Stansted, Brussels and domestic destinations
  • Rome's two airports, Fiumicino and Ciampino (200 km) about a 2 hour drive away, and is the better choice for flights to major UK airports and international destinations
  • Florence airport (70 km) is about a 1 hour drive
  • Pisa Airport - (115 km) it is about 1 hour and a half

Distance from Train Station:
  • Name of station: Stazione di Siena in the town Siena: serves trains to Rome, Florence, Milan and Venice. It's a 30-minute drive to the estate from Siena
  • Avis office near the station. For information on train times, see Trenitalia
  • There are taxis at the station - they are there till the last train arrives.
