Wedding Locations

Lake Garda Wedding Locations


What I want to do here is give you an idea of wedding locations available on or near my corner of Lake Garda. They are neither in order of preference or price. There are many and they are all different so perhaps not all suitable or in line with what you were thinking of for your wedding but give them a quick look anyway, you never know what might catch your imagination or suddenly seem like the perfect match for the dream in your mind right now.


In all cases where prices are quoted it’s for a menu structure based on:

Buffet of antipasti

Sit down meal of 2 or 3 courses (I recommend only 2 there is so much food on the buffet before)

Wedding cake

The amount of wine offered varies from place to place



La Torre San Marco Gardone Riviera. This is effectively a beautiful lakeside garden this venue costs around €260 pp from 17.00 till midnight. If you wish to party later there are options for either exclusive use or, if it’s the weekend during the summer the place becomes an open air club, during the week the piano bar is an option until way past my bedtime. Legal ceremonies are possible here. Up to 150 guests. You can check out my video of the location on IG

Aperitif time walk through a wedding


Hotel Laurin Salò you would need to take all of the rooms (22 I think) for probably 3 nights but it depends on the period of the season as well. Prices last time I had a wedding here were about €250pp. Similar menu structure to above but music is tricky past 00.00 even if you have the whole hotel and certainly not allowed past 01.00. Legal ceremonies are possible here. Up to 90 guests. See my video on IG


Cascina San Zago up on the hill above Salò offers a more economical option with menus from €150 parties till 01.00 are fine. Legal ceremonies are possible here. Up to 150 guests. See my video on IG


Hotel Bellariva Fassano has an enviable lakeside position but you have to take all of the 17 rooms with prices starting at €350-800/nt because it’s 5*.  Prices around €190 for the reception but with wine extra. Up to 100 guests. See my video on IG


Villa Bissiniga on the hillside above Salò, there are 12 rooms here but also 2 apartments so many of your guests can stay here if you like the idea of all being together for a few days. They will allow you to book the whole structure for just one night if that’s all you want. Menus from €150. Music inside till 00.00 no issue and after that still possible for a surcharge. Up to max 80 guests. See my video on IG


Villa Arcadio this 4* hotel is set on the hillside overlooking the bay of Salò. There are 18 rooms and in order to have your wedding here the hotel usually prefer you to take all of the rooms. Prices around €250pp with the possibility to eat in the garden, terrace or poolside. The inside dining space (if the weather is unkind) split between two connected rooms which can seat up to max 60 people from memory.


Borgo il Mezzanino this wonderful farmhouse has recently come under new management. It has 9 rooms and wonderful grounds. They would happily have a wedding here if all the rooms were also booked. There is however a further rental fee for having your wedding here if you want exclusivity of €3000 otherwise, even taking all the rooms, they still might have small events in the grounds. There is no restaurant service here so we would have to call in caterers and so we should consider a cost of around €200pp + wine. Further to this we need to consider plan B space in the form of a marquee so there are more costs to add to this depending on numbers.


Lonato Castle  is a fantastic location which is just south of the lake but still with great views. It isn’t lakeside but it has wonderful views of the lake and it’s a GREAT venue. For exclusivity + value v’s quality it’s hard to beat. . Legal ceremonies are possible here. Prices €195pp inc castle hire and wine. Party till 02.00 possible. Up to 200 guests. See my video on IG aperitif time


Palace Hotel Villa Cortina Sirmione  Weddings here are now required to take the whole structure of 53 rooms for 3 nights. Wedding breakfast prices from approx. €300 to inc wine, supplements for party past 23.30 or dinner on the jetty. Up to 180 guests.


La Speranzina Sirmione this beautiful and exclusive restaurant can be rented out entirely or in part depending on the number of guests you have and what you want for your reception therefore prices alter in accordance with that but also the month and day of the week. Therefore each request is individually evaluated, lets say €220 – 270. They don’t really want weddings more than 30-40 people.


Grand Hotel Gardone since 2023 this has been bought by new management and they hope to close and restructure, it hasn’t happened yet but I would be nervous of making any bookings here.


Villa Bettoni Gargnano incredible historic lakeside villa. Only location so no rooms here and catering is your free choice so prices from €250pp on top of the hire cost which starts at €11,000 upwards depending which parts of the villa you wish to use.  Music until 00.00 unless special permission is obtained. Up to 150 guests but the inside rooms, should the weather be unkind, would have the guests divided into separate rooms. The largest room can seat 80 people.


Isola del Garda this location cannot be compared to anything, it’s totally unique. Prices vary depending on whether you only want to have your ceremony here or also your reception. Catering costs are always to be considered extra to the hire costs and you should be aware many suppliers charge supplements because of the logistics of working here so please be comfortable with your budget. Legal ceremonies are possible here, the Loggia can seat 100 people. Receptions of up to 110 guests possible. See these short videos on IG


La Veranda Barbarano perfect lakeside position in this modern glass restaurant. The hotel that is part of offers rooms of course but wouldn’t be able to give exclusivity. Prices from €160pp, music until 23.30. Up to 60 guests. See my video on IG


Bella Hotel Portese this lovely hotel will take small weddings during the season and possibly larger weddings early or late season. Prices from €160pp inc wine. There is a lovely gazebo for a symbolic ceremony but a legal ceremony isn’t possible here.


Villa Avanzi, Polpenazze this villa is used exclusively for events so you get the whole space to yourselves. It’s now licensed for legal ceremonies as well. There are different spaces which allow you to have the ceremony or dinner inside or out and it comes with a complementary suite for the night of your wedding. For weddings over 70 people there is no separate location fee and the Wedding Breakfast costs from €145pp. Music till 00.00


Tenuta Le Selve this is a property split into two villas (rented Sat-Sat) but with the possibility to hire both for a wedding. Stunning views and plenty of outside space lend it very well to a garden style wedding however there is no plan B with suitable inside space so we have to also calculate for the hire of a marquee. Catering is separate. Max 30 people.


Le Ali del Frassino on the edge of it’s own lake just 2kms from Peschiera, Lake Garda this is a really peaceful countryside setting. The hotel is sizable and exclusivity would only be an option for very large parties but they have different areas they can use for your wedding to give you privacy. Prices from €180pp with the possibility of a symbolic ceremony in the grounds.


Casa degli Spiriti with it’s elevated position this location offers incredible views over the lake. It’s possible to have your civil ceremony here. Reception prices from €170p. Music only until 11.45. Up to 160 guests in a L shaped, glass sided dining room. See my video on IG


Tenuta Cipressi & Olivi–e132414 their own website is off line at present. The views from the garden are incredible. It’s possible to have your civil ceremony here. Reception prices are based on a minimum spend instead of a per person basis and are cheaper mid week than at the weekend. See this video of one of their weddings To make sure there is enough plan B space I wouldn’t want to do a wedding here for more than 70 guests. Approx €140pp



Off the lake


Convento dell’Annunciata off the beaten track this is only a location so no rooms here. I’d suggest staying in Desenzano a 30 min drive away. Catering is always brought in for events here and something good quality would cost from €200pp min. A legal ceremony is possible here. Up to 80 guests.


Villa Giona Valpolicella about a 40 min drive away from the lake in the wine region of Valpolicella. The hotel has 17 rooms from memory and you can take them all only for 1 nt if you want but the price is incentivized if you take more nights. They don’t have their own catering but do provide their wine. Catering costs from around €200pp exc wine. Legal ceremonies are possible here. Up to 70 guests (for Plan B).


Convento Lonato this is a unique place that falls between restaurant/location and night club. There are lots of different space which could be exclusive for the reception but with the possibility to join the rest of the party later. They have small rooms and side gardens and larger spaces so possibilities for events of any size.


Villa Cordevigo Caviaon if you’d like to have your wedding in this 5* hotel you have to take all of the 30+ rooms. A legal ceremony is possible here. Up to 90 guests.


Monsatero Soiano del Lago  this place has been a long standing favourite for Italian weddings. There are lovely gardens and a number of function rooms and right next door a hotel with 19 suite rooms. Up to 150 guests. I’ve not done a wedding here yet but prices were reasonable.


Palazzo Arzaga  this 5*hotel is perfect for golf lovers as there is also an 18 hole course but it’s not only for golf fans, the old building is beautiful and there is plenty of space for a wedding and enough rooms to accommodate all of your guests. Prices from €150pp. Closed for 2022 for building work.


Agriturismo Feliciana with 12 rooms and 7 suites this could be a location for your whole wedding party to stay if a farmhouse/countryside location is what you are looking for. Set 12kms from Sirmione it’s immersed in the countryside. Wedding breakfast costs flexible, prices from around €120pp.


Fenil Conter hidden in the countryside this location can accommodate up to 100 guests for a wedding and there are also 2 spacious apartments. Prices from €120pp


Villa dei Mulini with access to the riverside and rooms as well this is a lovely venue I’ve recently discovered.


Villa Cariola Set in land beyond the lake but less thank 10kms from the town of Garda is this 36 room hotel. They have the possibility to perform legal as well as symbolic ceremonies here. A block price for all the rooms for a min of 2-3 nts over a weekend costs between €6500-7500 which depends on the time of year, a 10% discount applies for mid week. Reception costs are from €120pp (not including wine) at the weekend.
