A story full of charm and a prime location make Villa Matarazzo a unique place rich in natural scenery for a dream ceremony.

Set in a large private park of 30,000 square meters, Villa Matarazzo overlooks the Adriatic Coast and overlooks the enchanting Gradara Castle, scene of the love story of Paolo and Francesca. A short walk from the Villa takes you to the ancient parish church of the village of Fanano, dating back to 1200 AD, and dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel.
The cloisters, terraces and meeting facilities, derived from the old building, are the ideal setting for a dream wedding.
The atmosphere can be even more romantic with gardens that frame the entire villa and a centenary pomegranate, a swimming pool surrounded by greenery, patio and terraces, great places to have a toast while watching the sunset. Villa Matarazzo also features fifteen elegantly furnished rooms.

It is possible to have the civil ceremony at the Villa or in our garden.


The elegant and refined Villa Matarazzo has a special internal banqueting service to make any event a success.
The newlyweds will be joined by our banqueting manager Samuele Filippini who can guide them in the choice of every detail, from the definition of the menu to the "mise en place", all the fundamental details to personalize a wedding reception.
The large kitchen in the villa also allows our chefs to create menus of high quality, for those who enjoy culinary choices linked to the tradition and for those who prefer modern trends of contemporary cuisine.

Tripadvisor Review

Wow. I do not even have words to describe how fantastic my experience was with Villa Matarazzo, but I will try. My daughter chose Villa Matarazzo as the venue for her summer wedding. Arianna, the owner of the Villa, helped me maneuver the process of wedding planning for the entire year leading up to it. I do not speak Italian, but Arianna is fluent in English, which made it very easy to communicate with her throughout the planning. She always made herself available to speak – whether it was through email, or WhatsApp – she was very quick to respond. She worked closely with people from other companies/events (the band, cake, etc) and always relayed information back to us. We did a lot of planning over the phone before meeting in person; but when we met in person for the first time in the spring, she was very organized and had documented all aspects of our conversations from earlier. She was also very sweet, patient, and was a calming presence for everybody on the day of the wedding. I really can’t say enough about how fantastic it was to work with her.

The Villa and its grounds are absolutely breathtaking. From the panoramic views to the perfectly manicured gardens, it is truly a fantastic venue for any occasion. On the day of my daughter’s wedding, the women had enough room and space to get ready while the men enjoyed an afternoon outside in an entirely different part of the property – it is sprawling. Even for a wedding in mid-July, the hilltop location provides a cool breeze and plenty of shelter from the sun. Additionally, the rooms are spacious and very clean, all being well-equipped with AC and wifi – not to mention the lovely views of the grounds and pool.

Lastly, and maybe most importantly, the food. Signore Samuele and his team in the kitchen are nothing short of world class. They were able to strike the hardest balance between quantity, quality, and punctuality. In fact, they were so serious about the food that we had to plan some of the event timing around the cooking of the risotto! They truly didn’t take any shortcuts. From the meat and fish during the cocktail hour, to the gnocchi, to the final meat dish, everything was cooked to perfection as if it had been order 15 minutes before for a table of 2. Finally, Samuele is an absolute hammer when it came to the detail of the dinner service. His eyes were on everything that hit the tables and he wasn’t afraid to change even the slightest of imperfections. He even oversaw the band’s setup and teardown to ensure proper positioning.

All in all, five stars front to back. It is truly a world-class venue with world-class food all backed by world-class service.
