How to Find a Wedding Villa
Celebrating your wedding at a holiday villa can be an excellent idea, but there are certain things you should consider first.
At Rustical Travel, when one of our specialists visits a villa and is informed that it accepts weddings, the first thing we ask the property manager is: "Do you have solid experience hosting these types of events?"
Here are a few things to consider when renting a villa for a wedding:
• What is the maximum number of people allowed on the premises?
• Are you allowed to have loud music until late (orchestra, DJ, bands, etc)?
• If weather isn´t good, what can you do? What indoor space is available or is there room for a tent?
• How much does the accommodation cost? Is there an event fee for using the premises? What additional charges apply, on top of the accommodation rate?
• Is it easy to arrange additional accommodation in the area for other guests?
• Do they accept previewing of the property?
• Is there a chapel for a ceremony? Some of these rural properties have their own chapel!!
• Do they have photos of other weddings available?

Our view: This place really is an exceptional venue for weddings. As a holiday villa is extraordinary but as villa for weddings this is the best estate we have seen in Spain so far. The level of preparation here for weddings events is superb. The fancy Event's Room is gorgeous and even the industrial kitchen in this additional annexe is good looking. Extensive lawned areas are huge and they offer excellent spots for different times of the day and different moments that may be required in a wedding.
Event fee / costs on January 2020: This property may not be a cheap option for a wedding but there are really interesting packages with prices we consider acceptable and these packages are inclusive of the Event's Room. Unless you book a wedding package the Event's Room is not included and it has an additional cost of 1,975 euros.

Our view: Although property managers have recently restricted the number of weddings that take place at this property due to it being located in a valley where noise usually affects the neighborhood, they are still accepted. If a wedding is celebrated here, there are a good number of villas in the area for guests. Our selection of Villas in Casares may offer accommodation for many other families joining the wedding celebration. Bear in mind that the minimum reservation is one week and normally from Saturday to Saturday.
Event fee / costs on January 2020: Weddings or similar events may be accepted on request and are subject to a venue fee of 1400 euros.
