Villa Faraggiana is steeped in the atmosphere and charm of 18th century mansions in Liguria.
The villa, located at Albissola Marina, in the area of Savona, is the best place for a couple who want to celebrate their wedding in an elegant and refined location, immersed in a magnficent garden.
To welcome you there is majestic boulevard, characterised by symmetric and elegant designs, typical of Italian gardens of that century, and populated by sculptures and fountains.
On the ground floor of the mansion, the Seasons’ Gallery is the best spot to organise the dinner, and enjoy the spectacular views over the garden.
The gallery still maintains its original floor in polychrome maiolica, embellished with golden statues and decorated with frescos. It can accomodate up to 160 seated places and is available for receptions from May to October. For a smaller number of guests, up to 120, there are also another 5 recently restored rooms available during winter.
During the reception, after the aperitif, guests are offered the possibility to visit the entire Villa, which also operates as a museum opened to the public, symbolising “the value of witnessing the customs of an era”.
Regarding the ceremony, Villa Fareggiana has a definite advantage for couples who choose Liguria to fulfil their dreams and their vows. This mansion in fact has been selected as “Casa Comunale” (Council Hall) which means that all the ceremonies get the same legal validation as in the Town Hall. It is left to the couple to decide in which area of the Villa to hold the ceremony, including outdoor and indoor spaces.
Finding a location in such a beautiful, historical and natural landscape is an absolute treasure, and one where the ceremony and reception are combine doubles that value. finding such a treasure where to combine the ceremony and the reception doubles its value.
After that, all you need to do is book the catering, the florist and the photographer!
