New Fairy Tale Wedding Venue in Italy

The Borgo Storico Seghetti Panichi, a national monument as much as a lived-in family home, now opens its doors as a wedding venue. The historic buildings and beautiful gardens in the up and coming Le Marche region of Italy are one of the most romantic settings any couple could dream of for their wedding. The venue is known for its typically Italian hospitality and its refined and elegant flair.

Getting married at the Borgo Storico is just like a fairy tale come true. Couples can very much choose where they want to celebrate their wedding – there are various locations indoors and outdoors that are simply perfect for wedding celebrations and civil ceremonies can be arranged. From the seventeenth century chapel, the eighteenth century villa with its elegant salons to the historic nineteenth century romantic garden with lots of perfect spots for a marquee to celebrate under the stars. There are also eleven luxurious suites and professional kitchens on site and specialised staff are there to satisfy every request with the utmost care and attention. Couples can see the various possible table settings in the new showroom, where they can choose from many different kinds of original table settings
from the “Princesse” collection. Created by Princess Pignatelli Aragona Cortes, fashion designer and owner of the Borgo Storico, the collection also includes silk embroided tablecloths, golden candlesticks and cutlery with original decorations as wedding keep-sakes.

The Wedding menu will certainly impress and can either be served plated or in form of a buffet. A standard menu will start with alcoholic and nonalcoholic fruit cocktails, some expressed fried seafood and vegetables, an Oyster and strawberry champagne buffet, a wide selection of seafood including king prawns and lobster, a selection of regional cold meats and not to forget risotto and hand-made ravioli. There will be traditional wedding cake as well as a cake buffet. Wines from the region and coffee will also be served throughout the evening. Prices start from € 100.00 a head for the basic menu and drinks for 150 and more guests and from €200.00 a head for smaller weddings.

The Princess opened her family home to guests and visitors in 2000 and wanted to make sure that the villa and park were being used and enjoyed. The villa is not treated as a museum, but instead visitors are encouraged to walk on the carpets and to get close to the ancient furniture and treasures. The Princess says: “We are very fortunate to live in such an unspoilt part of Italy and invite our guests to share the Borgo Storico with us - we are delighted if we can help couples make their fairy tale come true by arranging their wedding in our beautiful villa and garden or if they just want to spend a few relaxing days on their honeymoon with us.”
The Borgo is a peaceful shelter from daily life, where attention to detail and quality service are blended with culture and tradition. Guests can choose among eleven suites furnished with antique pieces and offering a complete range of facilities: six suites in the Relais Villa and five separate apartment suites with private access, composed of bedroom, bathroom, sitting room and kitchenette, in the Residenza San Pancrazio.

Accommodation starts from €150 per suit per night. The coffee house and bookshop, meeting rooms, the swimming-pool with sauna and wellness room together with the historic gardens, complete the compound. All suites are with air conditioning, telephone, satellite TV, electronic safe, minibar and kettle for tea. Adsl internet point and wi-fi internet connection in all apartment suites and common areas.
The Borgo Storico Seghetti Panichi lies on a hill along the valley of the River Tronto, a few kilometres from Ascoli Piceno. The historic compound, built in different periods, is formed of the Relais Villa, an ancient medieval fortress, which was adapted into a country residence in the 18th century; the 17th century Residenza San Pancrazio and the Oratory, built in 1608, are all surrounded by a historic garden of rare beauty, planted between 1875 and 1890 by the renowned botanist and landscape gardener Ludwig Winter, which is the first Bioenergetic garden in Europe.

A combination of experience, history and nature makes Le Marche one of the most culturally interesting regions in Italy. It’s got the highest density of museums and galleries in Italy, and is famous for its food and wine, which have maintained their authenticity and originality. The hills of Le Marche slope gently down to the sea and thick tropic-like vegetation merges into the sandy beaches of the Adriatic coast.
The Borgo is also the perfect place for a Mini-Moon, Honeymoon or an anniversary trip (or even a nice weekend away with the girls). The Borgo offers its guests a restaurant service with traditional recipes and local produce of Le Marche. The sun-drenched swimming pool set in beautiful natural surroundings, is positioned to enjoy the fresh sea breeze that blows from the nearby Adriatic Riviera. In the evening, the sun sets behind the Sibillini Mountains and the Coffee House turns into a cocktail bar!
