Santi Giacomo and Filippo Estate is the perfect location for a country chic wedding. The Estate is only a few km away from Urbino and the Adriatic coast, and it is nestled in the “La Badia” oasis lying on beautiful hills covered with vineyards, woods and little lakes, the perfect mix between nature and culture, wellness and taste.
The estate is an ancient rural village restored with care and attention to respect the surroundings. The hotel is composed of six ancient rural residences, a SPA, a restaurant with gourmet pizzeria, stables and an organic farm. Your special day can beautifully start with a romantic wedding ceremony in the little country church inside the property. The old Abbey goes back to the 14th century and it is dedicated to the Saints James and Philip. To this day, this intimate abbey church is open every Sunday morning for Mass, to testimony the close links that exist between the Tenuta and the local Urbino area.
The incredible beauty of this ancient church is the intimate setting for destination weddings, combining the wonderful view of the hills with the spirit of history (one part of the land on which stands the Tenuta Santi Giacomo e Filippo belonged to the Renaissance painter Raphael’s paternal grandmother). If you are dreaming of an open-air civil ceremony, you can choose different and spectacular settings on the Estate gardens.
The Tenuta offers an extensive choice of backdrops for your special day: from the vineyards, through the botanical garden with its delightful array of officinal plants, or the extensive gardens that surround the hotel, with their rose-gardens, centuries-old oaks, and lush lawns.
It is possible to arrange cocktail parties, or a barbecue around the pool. In the event of rain, you can have your wedding reception in the wonderful Restaurant Urbino dei Laghi. With its uniquely romantic setting, overlooking three lakes and in the shade of a number of centuries-old oak trees, this is the ideal location even for a consisting number of guests.
Here you and your guests can taste seasonal dishes, which are produced using high quality ingredients, fruit and vegetables from our own organic farm, as well as tasting the wine from our own vineyards. If you wish you to know more about this location or to book a visit, please click here!
