Love me in Liguria: abbazia della Cervara

A place full of charm and history: the Cervara abbey is an ideal location for organizing a dream wedding bouquet, between the terrace overlooking the bay of Portofino and the suggestive cloister where guests can welcome their aperitifs.

The Abbey of Cervara is a refined location rich in history, charm and breathtaking beauty. Whether it is a wedding or a gala dinner, a corporate reception or any other event, it does not matter: in this old Benedictine monastery it is impossible to organize an event that leaves an indelible mark in the memories of each individual invited. The history of Cervara dates back to 1361 and is particularly evident thanks to the presence of the church and cloister of the sixteenth century. Outside the Cervara boasts a wonderful garden overlooking the Gulf of Portofino where you can plan an ad hoc reception on a full summer day, “pampering” guests with an aperitif in the Cloister, or in the Corte del Glicine or with a glamorous dinner on the terrace overlooking the sea. Finally, inside the Abbey you can also spend the first night of the wedding in one of the eight finely furnished rooms available.

«A Benedictine monastery with seven centuries of history, a building barely visible in the thick vegetation that spreads to the peak on the Gulf of Portofino, a spiritual retreat visited by Francesco Petrarca, Santa Caterina da Siena and Alessandro Piccolomini. The monastery exudes an atmosphere of culture in a building of historic magnificence, ideal for a wedding thanks to the variety of indoor and outdoor environments. The cloister is a refined setting to welcome guests. The “Corte del Glicine” and the terrace with a view of Portofino are a perfect background for an aperitif in the open air. The “Galleria degli Imperatori” (Gallery of Emperors) or the Garden of the Gardenias, perfect environments for banquets and weddings. There are bedrooms too. Scattered between the central body of the abbey and the Saracen Tower each room has unique furnishings and different views from which to admire the sea or the garden.»
