Benvenuti!


We are so excited to invite you to celebrate our special day with us! Each of you has played a special part in our lives and we can’t wait to create more memories together in Tuscany at the beautiful Castello di Gargonza!
We hope this site provides the details you need to plan your trip.
See you soon!

Logistics

How to get there:
Planes, trains, and automobiles

The official address of Castello di Gargonza is Loc. Gargonza, 52048 Monte San Savino (AR), Italia and there are a few ways to reach this beautiful destination (that is even its own location on the Apple weather app!).

Airports

• Florence 108 km ~1 hour 15 mins by car
• Pisa 170 km ~ 2 hours by car
• Bologna 190 km ~ 2 hours by car
• Rome – Roma Fiumicino airport 233 km ~ 2 hours 30 mins by car
• Rome – Roma Ciampino airport 218 km ~ 2 hours 25 mins by car

Car

If you rent a car from one of the above airports, ‘Castello di Gargonza’ is on google maps and following those directions through the Tuscan hills will get you directly there (tried and tested 😊). There is also free parking on the property and enough for all guests. Having a car is a great idea if you plan to explore the region. There are no Ubers here 😉 just lots of wineries and historic towns.

Train

The nearest train stop is in Arezzo (~35 mins by car from Gargonza). We can arrange for a shuttle pick up to bring you to Gargonza or a taxi would cost around 50€. If you are interested in the shuttle, please let us know in your RSVP below. 

Where to stay

Gargonza, historically a medieval village, has 47 unique rooms exclusively reserved for our guests between Friday September 2nd and Monday September 5th (3 nights). This means you can hang out with us 24/7, have a short walk home post-late-night dancing and did we mention the pool? 

To keep the property exclusively for us, we had to reserve the property for the three nights. Since we understand your schedule might be a bit more restricted, we understand if you have to leave earlier but ask you to consider this in your decision. 

To book a room at Gargonza, please check the box in the RSVP below and we will send you the booking form. Please do not try to book via their site! It will appear unavailable because it is reserved for us. In case you wish to arrive earlier and/or stay later, please just mention this in your booking form and it can be arranged according to availability. 

Should you wish to take a break from the ‘nice’ Canadians and beer-drinking Germans, the nearest town is Monte San Savino (10 mins away) which has a few small hotels and AirBnBs. Arezzo is slightly too far given there are limited (to no) taxis, however, it is another option with more hotels. 

The Fun Stuff

Welcome Dinner

To kick-off the wedding weekend, everyone is invited to a welcome dinner in the Lecceta Gardens at Gargonza for a BBQ. The event will start at 7:15pm and officially goes until 9:15pm, to make sure everyone has a good night’s sleep before the wedding. 

Dress code: Tuscan Vibes 

The Wedding

Sleep in, have a cappuccino (Italian’s only drink them in the morning!) and get ready for the main event. The ceremony will begin at 4:30pm in the Limonaia Garden. 

Aperitivo (with lots of Aperol Spritz) will follow in the main square. 

Down the hill we will go to the restaurant for dinner at 7:15 pm, followed by dancing until the early morning 😉 

Dress code: Cocktail attire. Ladies, please note it can get chilly in the evenings so plan to bring a light jacket or shawl. 

The day after… Pizza Party

Let’s brunch, Italian style! In case you sleep through breakfast, we invite all our guests to join us for a pizza lunch by the pool from 12:30pm – 3:30pm. If you are not convinced yet, there will be fresh gelato!

Last and meant to be the least… COVID

We will be monitoring the situation throughout the upcoming months, and should anything no longer be able to happen safely, we will inform you all with advanced notice. However, we are optimistic that we will all be filled with enough vaccines by then to keep us safe!
