We love the Italian culture and countryside and wanted to have a small family wedding in Italy. We found Borgo Colognola through trip advisor and were so impressed with the reviews and photos. We loved that we could have everyone staying in the same place. We knew it would be difficult arranging a wedding abroad but Francesca was really accommodating and helpful. Her English was excellent and she would answer any questions about getting the necessary paperwork. She put us in touch with local suppliers, bands etc but wasn't pushy if we found someone else we liked.
We arranged a weekend to go and visit and the place was breath-taking! Even better than we thought. You do need a car to get there but it is central to a lot of places for day or afternoon trips out. So many options for the wedding day and activities the night before - pizza party!! We had two tasting menus which were incredible and had the chance to pick our final menu.
The wedding weekend itself was above and beyond what we dreamed off. Everything was perfect in everyway - exactly how we wanted it. All the guests said how amazing the place, food and location was. Looking back there is nothing we would change and we have the most lovely memories to take with us. Francesca made all that happen and we can't thank her enough. I would recommend if you have always wanted a wedding abroad to go to Borgo Colognola and you won't have any regrets.
We recently stayed here for my best friend's wedding and it is the best wedding venue i have been too. Having so many rooms at the venue meant we got to hang out with friends all weekend and the stunning venue was the ultimate backdrop to a beautiful wedding.
As an events organiser myself, the team at the venue couldn't do enough to help my friend on her wedding ad everything was seemless.
I honestly can think of one reason not to get married here.
The location is amazing - views to inspire amongst the Umbrian hills & olive groves! This is a 'little hamlet' with all apartments having a unique feature. It has been restored with care and attention to detail; all very tastefully done - rustic with a sophisticated feel.
The infinity swimming pool is stunning and you get the most beautiful views whilst relaxing. Ideal for families to couples wanting to relax in style as well as explore the wonderful hill top medieval cities and towns of Umbria that are nearby. The venue can also cater for Weddings with a beautiful 'Chiesa' Chapel on site as well as being a magical place for anniversary celebrations somewhere special.
If you want to experience 'true' Italy - Borgo Colognola is a must!
We cannot say enough in praise of this venue
The accomodation was beyond expecations, the venue for a wedding celebration was unique, simple yet sophisticated. The hosts could not do enough for you. The guests left with the memories af a fantastic wedding .
As a family we can truly say the wedding venue and the whole event exceeded our expectations and we all wish we coul relive it time and tme again.
We were staying here during a friend's wedding at the venue and absolutely loved it! The owner, Francesa, is extremely helpful in providing everything you could need. For location, the venue itself is situated in a remote area about 25 minutes outside Perugia - this means it's extremely secluded with nobody for miles to overlook you or disturb you. The drive that bit further out of Perugia is well worth it for the privacy, the silence and the stunning views from the rooms and the pool.
As for the house, I honestly couldn't fault it for the setting it gave the wedding - plenty of large beautiful rooms, gorgeous backdrop for the wedding ceremony, beautiful courtyard for the reception and an infinity pool right on the hill face. Everything had a gorgeous Italian rustic farmhouse tone to it making every picture look great.
Truly had the best weekend ever and would definitely come back just for a holiday!
Thanks for a fantastic stay!
