Couples Reviews  

From the first moment we saw the place, we fell in love. A fairy-tale location, immersed in the secular olive groves and handled by a great staff, of highly professional and humaine people. Lucia and Giovanni in particular, have been real guardian angels, they have followed us all through the journey that has led us to the wedding and that day they have been our shadows, making all better than expected.

The wood framed our ‘yes’, while our dinner took part in the olive grove, the cutting of the cake near the pool. Everything was magnificent and attentively looked after.

We also spent the night at the Tenuta and the rooms, both the standards and the suites, are large, characteristic and very well taken care of.  We have also dined at the restaurant, open to the public, the evening before the wedding, and many times in the previous months, it’s always been satisfying.

The morning before the wedding we’ve had the chance to relax in the pool, an oasis of peace and relax. In short, we recommend Tenuta Monacelli for a wedding, a dinner or a holiday. We travel a lot, but there are few places in the world that are so incredible.
