From Weddings by Silke – “The magical Villa Montanare, a stand-alone farmhouse established in 1640, was built by the family Fabbri from Florence who moved to Cortona during the turmoil between the Guelphs and Ghibellines. The Villa is perched on a hill overlooking a breathtaking panoramic view of the Val d’Esse and Valdichiana Valley and surrounded by a paradisiacal variety of cypresses, pines, figs, fruit trees, rosemary bushes, lavender, oleander, cacti, time-worn olive terraces and stone walls… the perfect setting for a fine art wedding!”

“We created a beautiful romantic bridal getting ready in and around this beautiful Villa with all those amazing textures followed by an intimate ceremony in the backyard on a higher olive terrace with a stunning view in the Val di Esse and Val di Chiana. We know that you’ll fall in love with Villa Montanare – everyone does!”
