Check In & Welcome Pool Party
Please arrive at the Farmhouse by 16:00. There will be light welcome drinks and snacks waiting for you at the pool of the main Villa down the road.
16:00 - 20:00 Welcome Pool Party at the Villa
We get a whole day to sleep in, cure our hangovers and recover from all the action and jolling. Thoughts are to host a „Bring & Brunch“ with whatever food is left over and whatever guests feel like coming back up to the Villa.
12:00 Bring & Brunch
Chill Day & Outings
This day belongs to you! Sleep in, exercise, chill at the pool or go on an adventure, the possibilities are endless. Please be prepared to feed and fend for yourself on this day. The apartments have kitchens to cook in and local restaurants are just 500m down the road!
We will try to organize some outings for various groups to join in on. A walk to the birthplace of Leonardo Da Vinci (4 – 5km round way) and a day trip to Florence (30m away) are top of the list.
+++ FULL SELF CATERING DAY +++
Over & Out
Check Out by 11:00
Casale Campo Antico is an old farmhouse down the road from the main Villa Il Salicone and is located in the midst of tranquility and surrounded by the beauty of the Tuscan countryside. In recent years it has been renovated and equipped with all the comforts for guests who want to spend their holidays in Tuscany. The individual houses can accommodate 4 - 10 guests in private double rooms and sleeper couches.
+++ HOW TO GET THERE +++
It's possible to reach Villa Il Salicone by public transport. Take the connection Munich - Bologna - Firenze. From there you can take the REG direction Lucca that runs every 30 minutes to "Serravalle Pistoiese". From the train station you can either walk to the Villa (1,6km) or arrange to be picked up by one of the other guests arriving by car. Please inform us in advance about your arrival time.
Follow your navigation to:
Villa Il Salicone
Quattro Querci, 29/35,
51030 Stazione Masotti PT, Italy
Driving from Munich: +/- 7 hours
If possible, team up with other guests so as to split petrol and toll costs and be kinder to the planet. On-site parking is available.
The closest airport is Aeroporto Amerigo Vespucci in Florence which is about 40 km away from Pistoia.
From there you can either take the REG direction Lucca which runs every 30 minutes to "Serravalle Pistoiese" or rent a car and drive to the Villa (on-site parking available).
Dress code - Garden formal Feel free to choose attire that reflects the relaxed charm of a Tuscan wedding. Think light and airy fabrics, flowing dresses, and sun-friendly accessories like straw hats and sunglasses. Since our celebration will partly be held on a lawn, we recommend you keep this in mind when it comes to wearing heels. As the day turns into evening, there might be a bit of a chill in the air, so it’s a good idea to bring something to keep warm. A light jacket or shawl will come in handy, so you can enjoy the festivities without getting too chilly.
Babies & Children We love your babies as much as we love you! You are welcome to bring them along for the week of celebrations. Keep in mind that there is a pool on the property but it is away from the house (100m up the hill behind the house). The bedrooms are big enough to accommodate a crib or baby bed and there are also enough rooms throughout the house to arrange safe space for the kids to sleep. There are a few baby beds in the house but if you have a portable one it would be safest to bring it along
Can I bring a +1 Unfortunately, due to space limitations, we ask our guests to please not bring a plus one, unless they are specifically named on the invitation. Thank you so much for understanding!
Wedding Gifts The most important thing to us is that you are able to celebrate with us on our wedding day. However, if you wish to give a gift, we will gratefully accept a small contribution towards future projects as a married couple - starting off with the addition of a furry family member.
Do I need to bring bedding? No, the Villa will supply us with bedding. Do however remember to bring bedding for your little ones. The villa does not supply towels so bring your own bathroom and pool towels please :)

Roadtrips, Outings & Adventures
While we’re excited to have you at our wedding in Tuscany, this region offers more than just our celebration. Tuscany beckons with its history, culture, and stunning landscapes.
Our guide is designed to inspire your adventures, from scenic road trips and charming villages to delicious dining and historical exploration. We look forward to celebrating with you and hope your trip to Tuscany becomes an unforgettable journey.
1944, in the ruined wine cellar of a Tuscan villa, as bombs fall around them, two strangers meet and share an extraordinary evening. Ulysses Temper is a young British soldier, Evelyn Skinner is an art historian and possible spy.
Evelyn has come to Italy to salvage paintings from the wreckage and relive memories of the time she had her heart stolen by an Italian maid in a particular Florentine room with a view.
Evelyn’s talk of truth and beauty plants a seed in Ulysses’ mind that will shape the trajectory of his life – and of those who love him – for the next four decades.
Shortly after returning to a smog-covered London, circumstances lead to him, a kid, an old man and a parrot making their way back to Florence to start a new life.
Moving from the Tuscan Hills and piazzas of Florence, to the streets of London’s East End, Still Life is a sweeping, joyful novel about beauty, love, family and fate.
