Venue in Pienza
Val d’Orcia Country House’s history dates back to time immemorial. Situated at the centre of the Val d’Orcia, very near Radicofani, Pienza and Montepulciano, the castle of Perignano dominated and protected the Borgo, an indispensable sentinel during the endless battles between Guelphs and Ghibellines, Florence and Perugia. The property, once owned by the Burbon del Monte family and later by the Morellis, now belongs to the De Angelis Gaetani d’Aragona family as shown in the ancient topographic map proudly displayed at the top of the stairs in the Villa.
Val d’Orcia Country House, made up of ancient, lovingly restored stone farmhouses, whose original architecture and materials are preserved, offers a total of 32 bedrooms, two meeting halls, two salons for refreshment services, a small church and two swimming pools. Each house is entirely independent and, above all, very comfortable. Privacy and tranquility are an extra bonus, in addition to the pleasure of meeting other people, sharing enjoyable moments or giving oneself up to pauses of meditation and spiritual peace.
A wedding in the magical setting of Val d’Orcia Country House is impossible to forget – nothing and nobody will ever be able to affect your union. In the shadow of a great elm tree, in the middle of the Piazzone, heart of the Borgo, the terrace of the ancient Granaio is covered by a wisteria. Inside, two large salons with majestic wooden beams provide welcome shelter in the cold months. Further away, among the trees, the little church of Borgo seems to hide amidst the trees, an elegantly simple building. Pienza, “the ideal city”, can be seen not far off.

Many weddings have been celebrated here, all of them made unique and unforgettable by the religious atmosphere, the flower decorations, the joy of sharing the moment with friends. After the ceremony the married couple and their guests go down to the sweeping lawn and its panoramic pool with magnificent sunset views for a celebratory drink and colorful aperitifs before proceeding by torchlight to the Piazzone del Borgo and the beautiful arrangement of tables and sunshades or illuminated gazebos where the wedding dinner is laid out.
