    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!!!!!

    Absolutely amazing experience at Ristonchi!

    Wow! Where do I even begin. We worked with Stefanie and Rasmus for many months to plan a wedding at their castle in Ristonchi. I am so fortunate to have discovered their beautiful place on Airbnb. The hosts were great and helped me to organize a wedding ceremony and reception at their place for 25 total guests.

    We had 23 people total who stayed the night and their place definitely was comfortable for everyone. We were able to place our guests in rooms that would best accommodate them. Every guest kept saying just how cool it was to stay in a castle that was built in the 12th century! The beds are very comfortable and the views were awesome from the tower, were we had everyone stay.

    For our reception, we did the make your own pizza party and it was such a hit! Rasmus was great and helped everyone learn how to cook in the wood-fired pizza oven.

    The grounds are absolutely stunning and we were able to catch the most beautiful sunset right after our wedding ceremony. Definitely walk around and take in the breathtaking mountains. I only wish we could have booked another night to stay because I could have spent a lot of time exploring the town and walking around the castle grounds.

    I highly recommend Stefanie and Rasmus' place for a relaxing getaway in Italy and it's perfect if you're looking to host an event like a wedding, family reunion, etc. We cannot thank them enough for making our wedding day a dream come true!!

    My Romantic Dream Wedding

    Best decision ever! I wanted a destination wedding that was simple, pretty, rustic and romantic. Really just centered around my loved ones who were making a big trip overseas to be there.
    Ristonchi organized everything beautifully - we got their package that offered really everything! It was all taken care of - the rooms, the food, the cake, the music, the party, the ceremony, the drinks. Like a one stop shop for gorgeous (and affordable!!) weddings!
    Working with Stefanie was fun and easy, she always had everything under control and new what I wanted/needed before I did.
