There are a lot of variables to consider when thinking about an Eco wedding. If you feel lost and don’t know from where to start, maybe these venue suggestions by Cecilia may help you.
Borgo 4 Case (Camaiore, Lucca)
This little burg
on the hills of Versilia is a B&B with a rustic, yet elegant, spirit. This quiet location is easy to get to but far from the usual touristic destinations. This location is great for intimate weddings
since it can host 35 people inside.
It is characterized by an open space in nature
and the ancient olive grove
is simply stunning and perfect for a symbolic celebration or blessing. The pool
is great for the aperitif time and the dinner can be done surrounded by the houses of the burg. The internal catering
is specialized in the traditional Tuscan and Italian cuisine
. Comfort and respect for the environment
are the two main goals of Borgo 4 Case. To reduce their impact, they have installed solar panels
, a little pond to collect rain to use to irrigate, they produce their own extra virgin olive oil
. Lights are LEDs, of course, but also pointed towards the ground to reduce light pollution
Colle di Bordocheo (Capannori, Lucca)
If you are searching for a simple yet curated wedding, familiar and inspired by the beauty of the hills around Lucca, Colle Di Bordocheo is the perfect location for you. On the hill is possible to celebrate the civil or symbolic ceremony with the great vineyard
and olive grove
on the background. The wedding reception could present artisanal ceramics
, reclaimed furniture
, local and seasonal flowers
in a romantic and familiar atmosphere. During the wedding reception, you could taste the organic wines
and extra virgin oil
of the venue.
Lastly, I would like to personally suggest another location for your wedding with an Eco perspective.
Podere Rondinaio (Lamporecchio, Pistoia)
Located on beautiful Tuscan hills, Podere Rondinaio
is a great hidden gem
if you are searching for an Eco-friendly wedding location deeply connected with nature and the natural rhythms. This ancient farm was originally owned by the famous Rospigliosi family and it was built in 1692
. Today is a beautiful B&B run by a cute couple with a strong bio and organic view
. Just to mention a few, the cultivate their own organic vegetables and fruit
without the use of chemical pesticides, solar panels
and a low-impact wood boiler
, completely plastic-free
(in their courtesy kit you’ll even find their home-made olive-oil soap
!) and much more!
If you are thinking about getting married here, a wonderful outside ceremony
can be organized below an ancient oak
with an amazing view of the valley in the background. The aperitif could be prepared in the olive grove while dinner has been set up in the back of the venue. To end your beautiful day, the terrace will offer a magical view of the valley of Valdinievole
, a real dream!
