Perched on the stunning cliff top of Capo Vaticano; Il Faro has breath taking views out towards Sicily and the Eolian Islands, overlooking the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. On your wedding day you could be admiring the views at sunset and partying with family and friends under the stars.

The flexible and spacious venue offers a beautiful canvas for your wedding day. The venue has a teared layout making the wedding day flow very organic and multi facetted. Each layer has been tried and tested for different wedding day activities – Ceremony, Welcome drinks, Antipasto, Dinner and Party; we switch this up based on the numbers and look and feel the bride and groom wish to achieve.

Civil and Symbolic ceremonies, between 40 – 160 guests, can take place in either the Garden Terrace, Wine Bar Terrace or Belvedere (the later requires special local council permissions). They each offer a different flavour and different view point.

There are local churches a short drive away, if you wish to opt for a religious ceremony.

The party can then move to the Restaurant Terrace, Garden Terrace or Wine Bar Terrace, again these spaces are very flexible based on the the bride and groom’s requirements and wedding look. The venue is beautiful in its simplicity; exposed brick, chestnut beams, coastline pathways and twinkly fairy lights, all against the stunning back drop of our view.

The venue’s forte are the views but we pride ourselves on sourcing the best tasty local produce prepared by our top class chefs; after all we are based in Italy and food is what we do!!

We differ from other venues as we aim to facilitate and assist the future newlyweds create the wedding of their dreams, therefore we get very involved in the styling and decorating of the venue to create the perfect ambience.

The location is a picture perfect setting to have your big day. We are located in the sunny and beautiful Southern Region of Calabria, accessible via Lamezia Terme airport with direct flights to London.

The venue teams up with a local Villa Agriturismo a short walk away, it’s available for you and your guests, if required. The Villa is also available for pre-wedding Welcome Parties or post-Wedding Brunches and Lunches… ensuring we keep the good times rolling!
