Now I know I shouldn’t have my favourites, but I do, and Villa Bernardini is one of them! This event only venue has definite WOW-factor from the moment your guests arrive, combine that with the numerous other plus points...such as a late night music license (until 2am), an inbuilt sound system throughout the grounds, well manicured, spacious gardens and of course the possibility for a legal, civil ceremony onsite, this really is a dream location.
The recommended dinner space has optional 'walls' and dancing usually takes place in the limonaria, so there are suitable bad weather options for up to 200 guests if required.
External caterers are required, and my preferred catering company are familiar with the space and facilities available and can supply everything that's needed so you get your choice of tables, chairs, place settings and more!
Although there is no accommodation onsite, there are a variety of accommodation options nearby so you do not need to worry about where to host your guests – this can all be easily sorted with just a short transfer.
