"The combination of the beautiful grounds, delicious food & wine and the impeccable service from the events team, meant we just couldn't find anywhere that came close to Villa Maria. It's a truly magical venue and we wouldn't change a thing"

"Villa Maria is the perfect location for a wedding! We had SO many compliments on the food & wine and the impeccable grounds made for an amazing backdrop for photos. Having a dedicated events coordinator made the whole process an absolute dream and we are so thankful for that. We had the best day ever and would highly recommend!"
