The most beautiful day of your life deserves a location that can fulfil your dreams. You can turn yourself into a princess. A dream that comes true in one of the oldest and biggest castles of Europe: Castelbrando. Nestled in the heart of the Prosecco Hills, the perfect auspicious symbol of happiness, this majestic castle, between Venice and the Dolomites, towers over Valmareno, and represents one of the most impressive examples of Italian historical and artistic heritage redevelopment, so that it was the international seat of the first G8 agriculture meeting in 2009.
At Castelbrando you come into contact with two thousand years of history, and imagine the multiple eminent figures that visited this place. It was built during the Roman period as a castrum, military camp, and during the Middle Ages it represented an impregnable fortress built by local people to protect themselves against Magyars’ invasions. Then it became a feud controlled by different local noblemen until, with the conquest of the Republic of Venice, it was donated to Count Brandolino IV Brandolini from Forlì and Gattamelata, two mercenaries that used to serve the Republic itself. During the following long period of peace, the fortress lost its military characteristics and became a real castle, provided with a definitely innovative air-conditioning system since the XVIII century. The fascinating history of Castelbrando reflects the sinuosity of its spaces, the wonderful panorama, the extreme attention to details, and every evocative aspect offered by this magical place.



Nowadays, the castle offers the newlyweds splendid Venetian halls to organize regal receptions, luxuriant gardens for breath-taking events, three sixteenth-century theatres, a well-stocked wine cellar, which can amaze even the most expert wine entrepreneur, and last but not least, a wonderful SPA, born from the ruins of old Roman baths: a real oasis of wellness, where you can prepare or recharge yourself for the wedding day. In one of the internal courtyard, there is a little and lovely eighteenth-century church dedicated to St. Martin, where the bride and the groom can celebrate the religious rite. The magic continues at table, thanks to the fabulous creations of the gourmet cuisine proposed by the castle’s restaurant, Sansovino, which, apart from its culinary works of art, also offers a catering service. In order to organize the most impeccable and exclusive event, Castelbrando offers the newlyweds its qualified staff’s carefulness and professionalism to arrange any aspect: flower decorations, table details, rules of etiquette, and soundtrack. A real team work to create a perfect scenario in a magical location, the only option to turn the best day of your life into a wonderful dream.
