Historic Villa

A Mediterranean-style treasure built in 1912, this beautifully maintained building offers two floors of event space for any celebration and reception needs, complete with original hardwood floors, lighting fixtures, French doors, fireplaces, and exquisitely paneled walls. The elegant outdoor veranda is a popular spot for catered receptions during warmer months. 

Spanish Courtyard

Located adjacent to the villa, this “sunken” brick courtyard patio is built around a central marble fountain and is dotted with palms and lovely landscaped accents. Suitable for smaller receptions. 

Oval Garden

Surrounded by wisteria vines, hydrangea, and roses, this small, intimate garden provides an elegant backdrop for wedding ceremonies. 

Love Temple

Located at the North End of the picturesque Italianate Garden, the Love Temple is a romantic structure complete with tall Ionic columns and an ornate Italian sculpture. 

Global Gourmet Catering is proud to be a preferred wedding caterer for this picturesque Saratoga venue!
