Aerial view of Castello di Modanella  

Venue Location

The Castle of Modanella is situated near Lucignano in the heart of the Tuscan countryside – same distance from Arezzo and from Siena (about 30 min) and at about 1,5 hours south of Florence.

Venue description

The impressive castle of Modanella is situated on a hilltop surrounded by the farmhouses of the castle. The central part of the hamlet includes the castle, a Catholic church and an old school that has been turned into a farmhouse with some apartments.

On the estate there are also 3 swimming pools, 2 fishing lakes, and a tennis court - all perfect places to enjoy the beauty of the Tuscan countryside.

Wedding ceremony and reception

Catholic Wedding ceremonies can be celebrated in the Church that can hold 80 guests, while symbolic ceremonies are allowed in one of the halls of the Castle, in the court or in one of the gardens.

 

The aperitif can follow in the restaurant garden while dinner generally takes place in the impressive court. Outdoors there is room for approx 200 guests.

The arched hall on the first floor is also available for banquets in case of bad weather conditions and can hold approx 150 guests. In this case the restaurant halls can be used as backup for the aperitif.
