CASTELLO DI FLAMBRUZZO
Location per matrimoni ed eventi
Depending on the season, this romantic and fascinating location will offer you the most suitable setting for your event, welcoming your guests in style, from a poolside cocktail to a delightful sunset buffet with live music, in the vast park that surrounds the castle. The elegant and welcoming venue features spacious rooms, a pleasant terrace overlooking the garden, and a private chapel consecrated by the Oratory of the Holy Cross, where you can celebrate the religious ceremony of your wedding. The venue can accommodate up to 150 people inside and on the terrace.
The impressive terrace, which extends to the rear and runs the entire length of the building, overlooks the majestic English-style park: three hectares of lush greenery, with a large oak tree in the centre, crossed by a tributary of the River Stella, forming streams and islets connected by characteristic wooden bridges. Among the wildlife of the park, the distinctive fauna of this water spring area stands out among the countless varieties of birds and fish that populate the castle land, including squirrels and other mammals, which contribute to making this oasis of paradise, bustling with life. A play of light slowly transforms the park, following the arc of the sun as it moves across the sky, changing the park′s appearance and revealing new scenes: in the bends of the river, among the lush waterside vegetation, and in the shadow of the nearby hills, creating suggestive views unravaged by the passing of time and the tumultuous events of times gone by.
The location is ideal for events of all kinds: weddings, exhibitions, concerts, book presentations and cultural initiatives such as Open Castles (Castelli Aperti). Guided tours are available upon reservation (minimum 10 people) at a cost of 10 euros per person (children under 12 years old are free).
The first historical trace of the castle dates back to 1258. In that year, the Savorgnan family returned the castrum et villam inferiorem de Flambro to the patriarch, Gregorio di Montelongo. Subsequently, it was transferred to the Count of Gorizia and the House of Habsburg. In 1912, it was bought by Count Francesco Rota di San Vito al Tagliamento. After World War II, it passed to Mario Badoglio, husband of one of Francesco Rota′s daughters, Giuliana, and son of the general, Pietro Badoglio.
