Catering – Pizza party – BBQ
One of the things we are most attached to is the attention to the quality of our local products. We want our guests to be pampered and that they have the opportunity to taste many of the typical products of our land. All menus will be customizable together and we will be happy to host you for a tasting in Villa to meet our chefs.
Often for those who stay several days we’d like to organize small welcome or barbecue so you can also taste the baked goods and enjoy more informal dinners than the main reception.
The Cocktail Bar
The heart of the party from the moment of the aperitif until after dinner will definitely be the cocktail bar. Inside Palazzo Gatteschi it will be easy to recognize it, our architects have in fact installed it under the centuries-old horse chestnut tree, unique because it is handmade by our artisans who have carefully worked and treated iron, material with which it was built.
The lights that come down from the branches of the tree give it the perfect setting at sunset when the sun descends right behind it. Professional barman, drink list and “the cocktail of the bride and groom” will do the rest. We will be at your disposal to customize your open bar and guide you in choosing the most requested cocktails.
Entertainment & Music
Each experience will have musical and scenographic entertainment closely linked to the setting you have chosen. Groups of luthiers in the woods, bright butterflies in the park, castle minstrels, everything will be built around the project carried out together with you.
Not to forget the party at the end of the dinner with a DJ set that will certainly not be missing, usually set up in our cellars stories ideal to be able to extend the party until the morning
Light Service & decorations
Every experience you choose inside Palazzo Gatteschi will be accompanied by a scenographic lighting, the central bar of the party will always be illuminated with cascades of bright wires, the park, the villa and each tree in turn will be enhanced to make it even more intimate and magical every outside of the Villa.
At the end of the dinner, but not least for importance here there is the wedding cake and the famous cake cutting by the couple.
Customizable with decorations, number of tops and ingredients. Our staff will be happy to introduce you to our pastry chef who will gladly prepare small tasting of the cakes we’d like to propose you.
Flowers – Photobooth & Tableau
Each experience, always following the theme you choose, will have the possibility to be in turn customized through the choice of flowers, colour shades and setup. Imagine the corner of the Villa that you like most, a colourful carpet, vintage armchairs, an antique trunk and here your set will be the perfect setting for souvenir photos of your guests, or a swing decorated with white flowers that swings among the trees of the park forest or even strings of light and candles that come down from the romantic wrought iron gazebo.
Be inspired by the many possibilities and ideas that our team will be happy to offer you.

Our Tuscany is different
Once past the dense forests of Vallombrosa, past the panoramic roads of Consuma, the landscape opens onto the lesser known Tuscan countryside.

The paths around Palazzo Gatteschi
With the support of an environmental guide, some historical paths have been identified that wind their way through the countryside and surrounding woods from the Villa, touch Dante’s places and retrace the steps of the Battle of Campaldino. Walkable on foot or by bicycle, these paths are a naturalistic and cultural experience, thanks to the stories of the guide.
The Castle of Poppi
Built in 1191 and renovated by Count Simone Guidi and his children Guido in 1274, it was the center of a historical event: the battle of Campaldino, on 11 June 1289, between Florentine and Ghibelline Guelphs, in which Dante Alighieri also participated. The victory of the Guelphs was an important event for the affirmation of the hegemony of Florence over Tuscany.
The stages in the places of Dante
Not everyone knows that the great poet also played an important role in the Casentino valleys. He lived in the Castelli dei Conti Guidi and fought in the ranks of the Guelphs, in the decisive battle of Campaldino.
From some historical documents it is assumed that the Guelph alignment was camped right in front of Villa Gatteschi.
Our team is able to create customized projects and work with every type of material.
Scenographers, architects, landscapers and fitters work together with blacksmiths, potters, carpenters, upholsterers and printers…
