The Castle and its paradise corners… 

Castello Benelli rises near this town called Bordonchio which stands out from the ones around it for being one of the oldest settlements in the area, dating back to the Romanesque era. It consists of a beautiful rural area where Castello Benelli is located. The noble families of the region always gave great importance to the symbols of power and that is why Count Pietro Spina built the castle.

Afterwards, it became the property of Ignazio Benelli in 1927. Mr. Benelli gave a great impetus to the modernization of the estate by restoring it, introducing new crops and, over the years, gave it the splendour that currently characterizes it. Castello Benelli has preserved its rural charm but the renovation has made it a refined, charismatic space ready to host receptions, events and conventions.

Your wedding in the Castle!

The charm of Castello Benelli goes far beyond its architectural structure. In fact, it is a place surrounded by a vast green area, characterized by maritime pines that extend up to the sea. This makes a fascinating setting for the spouses and for the visitors.

Not to mention the impressive stables that take us back to ancient times and the noble life. The wonderful wisteria envelopes and creates a magical atmosphere to top everything up. If the couple requires it, they can celebrate a civil ceremony in the garden, among the scents and the peaceful background of nature. 

For the reception you can choose to do it outdoors or indoors, where the premises has a capacity of 100 seated people and 200 buffet. A well-prepared catering will be ready to delight you with local specialties presented in a truly sublime way.
