We celebrated our wedding in August 2012 at the Villa Cipressi and are so glad we chose this venue!
The ceremony took place in the beautiful gardens of the Villa with a magnificent view on the lake.
The reception and the dinner were delicious - especially the mille feuilles wedding cake was a dream.
All our guests traveling from Europe and USA enjoyed their stay and the wedding very much. Not only the rooms were nice and clean but the location itself is a great place for those who want to relax as well as those who want to use this a starting point to visit other cities on the lake.
The Hotel Manager Davide and the staff are very professional and nice to work with (in the end they have several weddings per week) and happy to provide you with some good referrals for the wedding organization.
We can only recommend this as a wedding venue - also for catholic ceremonies since the beautiful small church is right next to the Villa.
The only downside is that this is no place for long or loud celebrations. Even though we had the Villa exclusively to ourselves, shortly after midnight we were rushed through a little, it was really clear that the staff had done their job and wanted to close.
That was a little unfortunate since we didn't even get to have any desert drinks and had to end the party already after the 3rd song.
But if you are looking for a beautiful setting with delicious food and magnificent views to enjoy rather quietly - this is the place.
For the party we arranged to move on after midnight to the really cute Pub d'Orso which is only a short walk along the lake away. The place itself is worth seeing with its stone walls and the huge celtic cross and Augusto (Tel: +39 0341 815 144 / email@example.com) was very helpful to arrange and accommodate us.
It is also possible to take the guests on a boat trip on the lake in the afternoon and the Villa can provide you with the contacts. Our guests enjoyed the one hour quiet time with the cooling wind a lot.
For the flower arrangements, we followed Davide's advice and went with the Fiorista Pirovano.
The flower arrangements were even nicer than on the photos that we sent and we felt that the pricing was reasonable as well.
Overall, we had a wonderful wedding and are glad that we celebrated our wedding at the Villa Cipressi.
Thanks to Davide and his staff!
