The day before…


The bride can spend the night on the eve of her wedding day in the Nymph’s Alcove apartment at Palazzo Contucci (see the website for a description of this elegant and sophisticated apartment). The bridegroom and the parents  can avail them selves of two well-appointed apartments belonging to Gigliola Contucci a mere 300 yards away from Palazzo Contucci (  Naturally this accomodation can also be used for the night of the wedding,  as a worthy way to end the uniquely special day.

Stepping out from the Palazzo


With Palazzo Contucci being right on Piazza Grande, every year visited by thousands of tourists for its spectacular beauty, our guests have the very special opportunity of arriving on foot at the Cathedral and Mayor’s office, both right next to Palazzo Contucci. The piazza seems more of a stage backdrop than a reality, and is factof tenusedas a film set (The English Patient, Twighlight) or for commercials (Mulino bianco, Mercedes…), for theatrical performances, ballets, concerts and a thousand ther events. You can for once be the leading lady, the fairy princess who step sacross her palace’s thres hold and goes to meet her prince. How …? On foot, on horseback, in a period carriage…let your imagination run wild and your dream come true!

The Reception at Villa Contucci in S.Albino


The eighteenth-century Villa Contucci is situated five kilometres outside Montepulciano. In the surrounding grounds there is a family chapel, the imposing Carp Pond typical of the noblemen’s villas, a Giardino all’Italiana with geometric beds filled with brightly-coloured gerberas, the Boschetto for shade when “the sun is over bearing” with its flowing brook, the Limonaia, the kitchen garden for home produce, and the Orchard, in spring a riot of blossom and in summer bountiful with plums, cherries, crab, apples and pears.

A special occasion with friends and family in this rural idyll guarantees a relaxing atmosphere and unique hospitality. An important festivity celebrated here will provide for ever a memory of beauty such that a mere reminder of that special day will prolong the sense of joy and happiness!

At the present only a part of the interior of the villa can be rented: the two large entrance halls, which form a single space, the dining room, the bathrooms and a private space for the clients.

The three reception rooms can seat up to 80 people or accommodate 90 people for a buffet. The Limonaia can be used as a dining room for the young (up to 30 people seated) or accommodate a further 20 adults sitting down.

The grounds can be rented for large numbers.

There is unlimited guest parking beneath the trees in the Orchard.

The Limonaia


The Limonaia is situated behind the Villa in a delightful small garden. A small and more intimate space, a mere 10 yards from the rooms in Villa Contucci. With its separate facilities it is an ideal place to celebrate with the very young. It can seat up to 30 children. The garden onto which it opens enables the younger guests to “stretch their legs” around in the interval between the courses, or they can burn off their energy in the adjacent Orchard with its ample spaces for running around and playing.

The Family Chapel


The chapel is an ideal, fairy-tale space for anyone who wishes to take the sacred vows with only a few chosen invitees, since it seats only up to 30 participants.
