    Amazing Wedding

    Such an amazing experience. We loved the history of the castle. The views are breathtaking. The dinner was one of the best meals we had in all of Italy! The host and staff were excellent. It was an added bonus to have the hiking trails and bikes.

    All My Italian Wedding Dreams Came True!

    Our wedding at Castello di Ristonchi was a dream. From the first email to Stefanie until the very last day we spent at the Castello, the genuine concern and outstanding hospitality NEVER changed. My husband and I are both based outside of Italy . Our wedding planning consisted of a lot of emails to and from Stefanie and her team, but emails were answered right away, and she even connected us to suppliers that they have had success with in the past.

    We cannot wish for a better location than this historic 1,00 year old castle - surrounded by rolling Tuscan hills, the word "beautiful" falls short to describe Ristonchi.

    As for Stefanie and the rest of the team, we are so,so, so thankful to them for making it possible for me and husband to have a stress free and perfect Tuscan wedding. Looking forward to returning here to celebrate our first wedding anniversary!!!!!

    The Best Wedding Ever

    Our son was married at Ristonchi in May 2019. It could not have been a better experience. Rasmus and Stefanie and their staff are comfortable, approachable, and felt like family immediately. They were in the background providing a fun, warm, rustic setting, until they were needed and then they were always at hand. They managed 90 guests professionally, anticipating the needs of the moment. They managed to get the wedding dinner moved inside when a downpour started 5 minutes after the ceremony, and it was every bit as lovely as outside (which is spectacular). Over the course of a long weekend (Thurs to Sunday), there were lots of small touches of welcome and comfort. The food was plentiful and delicious. There were lots of fun things to do -- mountain biking, hiking, and lounging by the pool during downtimes, and the castle, the adjacent buildings and surrounding fields offer many flexible spaces for all kinds and sizes of activities and groups. It was so relaxing and fun!
    The setting is true Tuscan idyll -- if anything, the photos don't do it justice.
