Villa Il Cerretino is a stunning private villa with extensive gardens located in the hills outside of Florence with sweeping views of the countryside, charming villages and Tuscany’s largest city in the distance.
The property is steeped in tradition, surrounded by nature and filled with masterpieces of art and design - all elements that combine to make it the perfect wedding and event venue or vacation rental in Italy.
Villa Il Cerretino is an incredibly versatile venue because of its many beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces of different sizes. Our expert event staff can create and personalize any kind of event based on each client’s unique preferences, requests and group size.
For clients who wish to arrange a Catholic ceremony inside a church, including baptisms, communions and weddings, there is the charming Church of Bonistallo just a few minutes away, as well as our small villa chapel located on our property.
For those interested in secular ceremonies, such as civil unions, blessings and symbolic rites, we offer the splendid setting of our Nymphaeum in the Belvedere Garden which overlooks the Medici Villa of Poggio a Caiano with Florence in the distance.
Our exclusive location lends itself perfectly to other types of celebrations as well, such as anniversary dinners which can be organized in our large Garden of the Well. Of course, it is also the perfect venue for celebrating an important birthday, graduation or retirement together with your friends and family in this unique, private setting.
The extensive grounds can host even the most majestic wedding receptions with hundreds of guests. The lovely space around the sparkling pool lends itself perfectly to wedding aperitifs for a welcome appetizer before a more formal seated reception.
Besides our two large gardens and swimming pool area, we also have inside event spaces that can comfortably accommodate up to 250 people to guarantee the success of an event no matter what the weather. In autumn, the hills are filled with warm tones creating the ideal backdrop for cooking classes, intimate weddings, wine or extra virgin olive oil courses or private dinners with friends in a cosy room with a glowing fireplace.
Our unique Winter Garden space, with its windows, overlooks the Garden of the Well, is the ideal room both in summer, kept cool by the air conditioning, and in winter, thanks to the heating and large fireplace.
The villa is comprised of 6 bedrooms on the first floor and many large and accommodating common spaces on the main floor. The entire villa has been furnished with the utmost care with a very strong focus on art and design. The furniture was designed in the 70s by Poltronova and is in harmony with the many paintings and sculptures of Italian Pop Art from the 60s.
