A perfect spot in the Umbrian hills: weddings, corporate or family holidays, tastings and tourism
A panoramic terrace with a breathtaking view of Perugia, special event rooms, a swimming pool, an ornamental garden and natural veranda, gourmet and wine menus: the Tenuta dei Mori in Villanova, a venerable village in the Umbrian hills, combines environment with atmosphere. From weddings, the most classic of ceremonies, to a corporate or family wellness holiday, Tenuta dei Mori transforms an idea into an event by offering total service solutions, able to customise furnishings, decorations, rooms, catering and entertainment. Relais standards and hospitality are the secret of this owner, who has returned to the places of his childhood and to redevelop the family winery.
Tenuta dei Mori is a really relaxing and comfortable spot: the swimming pool area, two hectares of surrounding garden, the Salone dei Mori with its panoramic terrace, the vineyard and the olive grove with the veranda, the play area for children, the Barbecue area, the wooden gazebo, with the novelty of 2021, the Salone dei Mori, two hundred and five square meters on one level, air-conditioned with a double system, designed for special lunches or dinners. The Tenuta dei Mori has officially become a ‘casa comunale’; it will therefore be possible, in collaboration with the Municipality of Marsciano, to carry out legally recognised civil marriages. While, to celebrate the wedding with a Catholic ceremony, just 300m from Tenuta dei Mori the parish church of S. Maria and S. Pastore from the end of the 19th century is an inspiring and solemn alternative. On request, hiring a celebrant/interpreter is possible and microphone and loudspeakers are also available for use during the ceremony.
The elegance of the rooms, the beauty of the garden and the swimming pool, the refined atmosphere make Tenuta dei Mori the top location for exclusive weddings in Umbria. A wedding at the Tenuta offers a calm and relaxed atmosphere with intimate and very special settings, all with the convenience of being able to stay in enchanting rooms or splendid suites and transform the wedding occasion into a marvellous holiday in Umbria for relatives and friends.

Choosing Tenuta dei Mori for your event means having the exclusive use of the entire venue for hosts and guests. The main building is divided into four apartments and one room where your guests can enjoy their stay during the wedding. The symbolic setting for the actual ceremony can be created wherever you prefer: at the pool, on the panoramic terrace, under the gazebo or in an even more special space, for example among the vineyards or in the olive grove. Depending on the weather and your preferences, the florist can decorate your ceremonial space creating a personalized atmosphere.
Perfect for tourists, who can combine a stay with visits to the most beautiful towns in Umbria (Perugia, Todi, Deruta, Torgiano, Assisi, Spello), relaxation and contact with nature surrounded by rolling hills, vineyards and olive groves, all enhanced by a warm family welcome.
