There is a saying in Croatian that defines marriage as a “harbour,“ a safe haven from which you journey into the world and to which you return for safety and the comfort of a warm embrace. A journey of a thousand miles through eternity with their loved one for many Croats thus also begins at the seaside, accompanied by the sounds of waves and the soft, warm breeze, bathing in the hazy light of the soft spring sun. Follow their lead and choose the Croatian seaside as your wedding destination during spring with flowering nature or in autumn while the surroundings are still illuminated by rays of the Mediterranean sun.
The small Istrian town of Porec is one of the more popular wedding locations due to its pebbled ancient streets that echo the romance and nostalgia of days gone by, intimate local taverns ideal for a candlelit dinner of local sea food specialties, and the spectacular scenery of its nature (which also makes an amazing backdrop for wedding photographs).
The beautifully restored Villa Polesini is an elegant and exclusive place for weddings by the sea. It is a hallmark of Porec’s architecture and one of the most spectacular venues for upscale wedding ceremonies in town. Built on the waterfront for the noble Polesini family, the beauty of the 19th-century mansion is surpassed only by the amazing view of the clear blue sea set only minutes away from the villa. With 4 halls on 3 floors, a suite for newlyweds, the full service of a Valamar catering team, and full wedding organisation services, it will make all your wishes come true.
The villa offers a number of indoor venues that can accommodate up to 200 guests, with a garden looking out onto the sea that is able to accommodate up to 300 people. With its luxurious rooms, a cellar tavern with a wide array of drinks, food prepared from local ingredients and a number of stunning beaches to choose from, Villa Polesini guarantees to leave none of your guests yearning for anything.
Guests can also take advantage of the Villa Polesini’s convenient location to enjoy a number of diversions, including a day trip to Venice, a panoramic boat ride to the famous Brijuni Islands and a visit to the legendary Baredine cave with its spectacular display of stalagmites and stalactites. The Villa Polesini is a unique choice for hosting any stylish event and it puts Porec firmly on the map of distinguished venue locations.
