posted by on September 30th, 2011

If you are a chocolate lover you can’t miss the annual chocolate festival in Umbria.                         

The town of Perugia is often referred as the Chocolate city, as it’s the town where the “Baci Perugina” chocolates are produced.

During those 9 days there will be a large display of chocolate fountains, chocolate sculptures and many stands selling all kinds of chocolate to suit everyone’s taste. 

The festival organizes also chocolate making workshops and gastronomic tours, for those that want to have a real chocolate experience.

We offer several villas in the Perugia area if you want to take advantage of a bit of relax and some chocolate tastings!

medieval castle wedding

posted by on December 22nd, 2010

Hidden by vegetation or in positions that dominate the valleys, medieval castles in Umbria and Tuscany can make your wedding dream come true.

Who among us has not dreamed of becoming the Queen or King of a castle for one day?

Medieval castles can recreate the perfect location for any type of wedding reception you have in mind, ensuring memorable photographs in private corners between the walls lit by the fire for traditional weddings.

A wedding in a castle can be ideal for a Medieval themed wedding, with guests and waiters in period costumes.

A Medieval castle is also the ideal wedding location for a stylish wedding reception.
The choice of two dominant colors, such as white and black, could provide the starting point for many details of your wedding, such as themed décor, flowers, candles menu’s, wedding favors etc..

For any setting you want to recreate, it is necessary to study in detail menus, flowers, lighting, music, wedding cake to create a homogeneous and high-impact reception.
To achieve this, it’s important to work together with an experienced and professional wedding planner, who can make sure that all the details for your wedding abroad are taken care of and ensure that bride and groom are the King and Queen of the castle that day.
