Castello di Mugnana is located in a vantage point along the ancient Roman street of Val di Cintoia, which, through the old hamlet of Ponte agli Stolli, once connected Florence to Valdarno. This castle proudly towers over a green and quiet valley full of forests, fields and olive trees. The history of Castello di Mugnana begins around 1000, when the Lombards built its tower and walls, so that it became the most important stronghold for the Cintoia League first and for Florence then.
Nowadays, Castello di Mugnana is a wonderful and cosy historic residence, nestled in nature, in the spectacular and uncontaminated Tuscan countryside. It is the ideal location for a romantic, exclusive and unforgettable wedding reception.
Once crossed the threshold, one is suddenly surrounded by a magical atmosphere that recalls an ancient and noble age. There is a solemn courtyard, adorned with a stone-octagonal-pillars loggia decorated with gothic motives. During spring and summer, the courtyard of the castle, with its loggia, romantic hanging garden and the other surrounding spaces becomes the perfect location for the welcome aperitif, an outdoor banquet or the wedding-cake cutting, which can also take place around the wonderful pool surrounded by the beautiful olive trees that inhabit the castle.
The different views from the castle disclose a fantastic and unique landscape. Any corner of this residence, which oozes charm and mysterious magic, undoubtedly represents a natural and extraordinary setting for an extraordinary photographic service.
In the park, there is a lovely private chapel, where the bride and the groom can exchange their promise of love, surrounded by the people they love. The spacious, elegant and entirely heated halls can hold up to 200 seats, and they are adorned with a big fireplace that during winter makes the atmosphere enchanting, sweet, familiar and cosy.
