Couldn't ask for a better venue and host, Italian perfection!!

We brought 55 people from Northern Ireland to Sorgnano for a full week, Monday-Friday, with the wedding on the Wednesday. To say it was perfect would be an understatement. Every single guest and family member loved their accommodation. Everyone had more than enough to do and boredom was never an issue, with the beautiful grounds being explored, activities like wine tasting taking place and the pool being well utilised.
The castle itself is the most incredible location for a wedding, regardless of the weather, and the food is to die for. When we went for our menu tasting back in April my eyes literally watered when I tasted the sliced angus. Aside from the wedding food, the breakfast, lunch and the buffet dinner (we requested this) were incredible and the portions were huge, nobody was ever left wanting.
In terms of value for money I think you would struggle to find a better location. Not only was it great value for my wife and I for the wedding, our friends and family felt it was great value for what they spent on drinks and meals throughout the stay.
Marco and his staff were wonderful hosts and made us and our guests feel at home the entire time. I can't thank them all enough and my wife and I will never forget our wedding week.
