The hamlet of Borgo I Vicelli is deeply rooted in the life of Florence and its surrounding territory.
The first historical mention of its structure dates back to the 1500s in relation to the Fattoria of San Donato (a local farm) which belonged to the ancient Ospedale Degl'Innocenti of Florence.
From May to October the rent of the location is subject to the reservation of rooms for two nights.
Borgo I Vicelli is the perfect location to hold a wedding reception in the privacy and tradition of a Tuscan estate, with a touch of casual and refined elegance. The nearby St. Catherine's Oratory, a Gothic jewel built in 1354 and decorated with frescoes, lends its enchantment to the celebration of your wedding’s civl ceremony. For the religious ceremony, you can choose from the different churches in the area, among which we recommend the Romanesque church of San Pietro a Ripoli. The ceremony can also be performed on the grounds of the borgo itself: in the romantic square of the village or at the lake in the shade of a white gazebo adorned with flowers.
The Borgo I Vicelli country inn provides an ideal setting among the natural beauty of its grounds with its flower-covered terraces, olive groves and aromatic gardens that guarantee a memorable reception. We offer assistance in organizing the entire event to make this special day a truly unique experience for you and your guests.
For your wedding you will have our entire hamlet at your disposal: from the borgo’s square, to the panoramic terrace, gardens, and pool, to the reception rooms of the villa and Old Mill. This is the perfect setting for an innovative and original buffet which can be set up around the estate to create a true journey of taste.
