Unforgettable wedding: our magical experience at Borgo San Rocco Resort in Sicily

We got married at Borgo San Rocco Resort in May 2023, and we cannot recommend this venue highly enough. We were able to seamlessly communicate with the hotel in English as everyone spoke excellent English. This made it very easy for us.

Our journey to this beautiful location in Sicily began in October 2022, and from the moment we set foot in the resort, we felt like a part of the family. Francesca was with us every step of the way, fulfilling every wish we had for our special day. Thanks to her excellent organization, we were able to save on hiring a separate wedding planner.

Francesca introduced us to amazing vendors and handled all communication on our behalf, as we didn't speak Italian. We were thrilled with every detail, from the priest and the beautiful church Chiesa Madre di Savoca, to the music (a beautiful string quartet in the church, traditional music during the reception, and a fantastic DJ in the evening), the photographers and videographers, vintage wedding car, delicious wedding cake, the exquisite floral arrangements, and the overall decor. We particularly loved the beautiful string lights at the front courtyard, which they specially installed for us. Francesca even organized babysitters with a bounce house to keep the children entertained. The kids all LOVED it, allowing the parents to enjoy their dinner without worry.

We had a total of 100 guests and celebrated for two days at the resort. The first evening was a delightful pizza party for everyone to get together, and the second day was our wedding. The food, Sicilian wine and service were outstanding. During our visit in October, we had the opportunity to taste all the dishes, and Francesco (the chef) tailored the menu to our preferences. He also accommodated special requests from our guests, considering allergies and dietary restrictions with absolute perfection.
We were able to accommodate approximately half of our guests at the resort itself, but there are several small Airbnbs in the village that offer rooms for rent. This made it easy to house all our guests without any issues. We stayed in the "Bridal Suite," which was a charming tower, and it was perfect for capturing stunning getting-ready photos.
Savoca is a truly magical little mountain village, and it was incredibly convenient that everything was just a few meters away. This meant we could avoid transfers and save time. One of the highlights of the village is the breathtaking view and the tranquility it offers. It was perfect because there weren't many other people or tourists in the village, allowing us to fully enjoy our wedding with our families and friends. Every corner of the village is beautiful, making it perfect for photoshoots.
Savoca is a part of cinematic history, as the all-time classic "The Godfather" was set in this location (wedding scene). This added an extra layer of special significance for us and our guests.

The journey to the location was uncomplicated as well. The nearest airport is in Catania, approximately 80 km away, which is about an hour's drive. We organized a shuttle transfer with small minivans for our guests. Some of our guests rented a car as they extended their stay on the beautiful island of Sicily.
On our wedding weekend, everything went according to plan and even exceeded our expectations! It was the most beautiful day of our lives, and we want to express our heartfelt thanks to the entire team. GRAZIE! We, along with all our guests, fondly remember the wonderful days in Savoca. Our guests enjoyed it so much that they suggested we celebrate our anniversary together in Savoca every year.

Idyllic Wedding On Top Of The World

The beautiful team at the Borgo gave us the wedding of our dreams.
We will be forever grateful to them for the love, kindness, attention to detail, support, stunning hotel & surroundings, wonderful food & good humor they showed us and all of our guests.
From the moment we arrived at the Hotel we knew our family & friends would be well looked after so we were able to relax and enjoy taking it all in.
What more can you ask for, simply perfect!
We had originally planned our Wedding for July 2020 so it was rearranged for 2021 & then finally again for 2022. At no point were we worried about our booking. The Borgo were reassuring and completely at ease with the necessary re-arrangements which is a testament to the love they have for their guests and the services they provide. We know of many establishments in the UK that were less than helpful in the difficult circumstances that the continuing lock downs found us all in.
Resort Borgo San Rocco is a beautiful gift, if you find it you are blessed.
We cannot recommend them highly enough, our hearts were full on our Wedding Day and so too were all our guests. Everyone would return in a heart beat and we very much look forward to being able to go back and visit our friends in the not to distant future.
Love Matt & Claire xxx

Unforgettable wedding and amazing location

We organised our wedding at borgo San Rocco at sept 30th 2021. It was a dream. The location, the staff, the dinner, it was more than we could have ever expected. Our wedding weekend started with a pizza party at the terras upstairs at the restaurant. The wedding dinner and party was downstairs at the pool. At the wedding reception it started to rain and all the staff was really flexible to move the reception inside. They also organised live singers and traditional musicians that all our guests really loved. We would like to thank all the staff that made our wedding weekend to the best! Our guests also loved it. We attend to go back at the borgo every year at our wedding date

Esperienza fantastica

Abbiamo conosciuto il Resort Borgo San Rocco nel 2014, anno in cui ci siamo sposati.
Il borgo è posizionato in una delle zone più belle della Sicilia, poco distante da Taormina, Castel Mola, Forza d'Agro.
Nel borgo di Savoca si respira una atmosfera incredibile, location non a caso scelta da registi internazionali, e si gode di una vista mozzafiato.
Quanto al Resort Borgo San Rocco è una location unica, con un servizio al top di categoria. I proprietari così come tutto lo staff garantiscono un servizio impeccabile. Abbiamo festeggiato da loro il nostro matrimonio con un banchetto di circa 100 invitati. I nostri invitati, a distanza di quasi 10 anni, ricordano ancora con stupore la bellezza e l'eleganza di questo posto straordinario.

Matrimonio Perfetto ❤️

In uno scenario incantevole come quello di Savoca, in una location che ha qualcosa di magico, abbiamo deciso di festeggiare il nostro matrimonio.
Tutto lo staff di Borgo San Rocco, in particolare la dolcissima Francesca, sono stati disponibilissimi e gentilissimi per tutto il tempo dell'organizzazione.
Francesco, lo chef del borgo, ci ha stupiti con dei piatti legati alla tradizione sicula che tutti i nostri ospiti hanno gradito pienamente.
Francesco, il titolare del posto, ha saputo creare un ambiente così accogliente e familiare che ha permesso a tutti noi di sentirci a casa.

Non avremmo potuto scegliere posto migliore per festeggiare il nostro matrimonio!
