I must admit that the above title does not fully do justice to the location of which I’m going to talk you about today: a wedding at the Villa L’Antica Colonia is not only a “wedding with lake view”, but it’s definitely a lot more. Villa L’Antica Colonia is a perfect mix of history, nature, relaxation and romance, all emphasized by a breathtaking view of the Lake Orta. If you are looking for an intimate and exclusive, but at the same time spectacular location for your wedding, then Villa L’Antica Colonia can be the right location for you!
Villa L’Antica Colonia is located in Crabbia, a small village on the hills of the Lake Orta, a few minutes from Pettenasco. The structure is surrounded by a large green area and is an excellent starting point for interesting trips into nature and culture.
But the strongest point of the Villa L’Antica Colonia is the magnificent panorama that sweeps over much of the lake and the surrounding green mountains, reaching up to Orta and the Island of San Giulio, a real spectacular scenary!
Try to imagine your wedding party on the large terrace of the villa with fantastic view on the lake: an unforgettable event for you and your guests!
Built in the eighteenth century, the villa was for long time a church property. The large ground around the building, that in the beginning extended until the lake, was planted with vineyards and fruit trees and cultivated by the women of the village that were working for the clergyman. At the beginning of ‘900 the villa was sold to a textile industry, which changed the property into a summer residence for the children of its employees, using part of the house for the breeding of the silk-worm in the winter season. It was later purchased by its actual owners, the family Manini-Maulini, who started the renovation of the property turning it into the beautiful villa we know today.
Villa L’Antica Colonia offers a unique and exclusive setting for your wedding: its prestigious balconies and arcades, between rustic and old, will give your wedding a scenario of the ancient times and a real magical atmosphere.
The old wine cellar of the villa is definitely worth a visit: excavated into the rock and kept unchanged for more than 3 centuries, offers a unique exposition of old wines from the most famous wine areas of Piedmont, from the Novara hills to the Monferrato and the Langhe .
If requested, Villa L’Antica Colonia offers also the opportunity to stay in the residence: the building is structured on 4 floors with 5 lovely apartments, all fully equipped and renovated with special care of details in different styles, that can accommodate up to 14 people.
Away from the crowded and noisy tourist centers, the villa offers peace and quietness to its guests: that’s why it is frequently rented by guests from abroad, who are looking for a pleasant holiday of total relax, granted also by the familiar management.
Villa L’Antica Colonia … much more than a “wedding with lake view”! ?
