Weddings

Our castle offers an idyllic setting for weddings and parties of all sizes. From a grand wedding banquet in the castle's courtyard and under the loggia, to an intimate family reunion in the spectacular candlelit dining hall to a romantic wedding in the 13th century chapel, all set against the backdrop of the majestic Tuscan countryside.

Once you step through the wrought iron gates you will find a welcoming homely atmosphere coupled with the grandeur of an ancient castle. Hidden in a secret valley, surrounded by vineyards, waterfalls and mountains, discover Potentino for your unique and unforgettable event.

 

All weddings are bespoke at Potentino and we aim to allow the bride and groom to make themselves at home as much as possible.

 

Music

We can help you find the perfect accompaniment to your wedding- whether it be traditional Italian folk music, a chamber orchestra, opera singers, a Jazz band, or a DJ- or even all of them.

 

Catering And Planning

We can recommend a variety of chefs specialising in delicious Italian food for all budgets. We can also put you in touch with a local wedding planner who can see to all the little details that will make make your day special, whether it is finding the right hairdresser, cake maker or florist.

 

Best Time Of Year

The best time to get married at Potentino is between April and October. April and May can be magical- with wonderful wildflowers growing in the fields and the fruit trees in full blossom, towards the end of May the cherries ripen. June is warm and balmy and still green- the vineyard is brimming with life. July and August, the colours turn golden in the fields and the crickets chirp- wonderful warm and fragrant evenings. September and October are the months of the wine harvest- long evenings and glorious sunsets. In November we begin to harvest the olives and the evenings turn chilly. We warm ourselves around log fires and celebrate in the dining room much as people would have done 500 years ago.

 

Accommodation

The Castle itself can accommodate up to 30 guests and there are hotels and Agriturismi (Bed and Breakfasts) to accommodate all your guests within a 5 minute drive from the castle.

 

“Winning charm in a classic castle setting. The perfect setting to enjoy wine tasting and cooking courses. Haunting beauty, total relaxation and great value. A great setting for a wedding, or for group weekends in the Tuscan country.”
