                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: An international background. A multicultural vision. Brought up in a challenging cultural and political environment in Warsaw, moves to Brussels where she graduates in architecture at 'La Cambre' the post Bauhaus school founded by Henry Van De Velde. A master in Environmental design from MIT (Cambridge, Massachusetts) and an extended professional experience contribute to a passionate approach and interest for architecture, art and communication. She moves to Italy where, after a architecture stage with Giancarlo De Carlo, she joins the Corporate Image department of Olivetti in Milan. In 1994 she founds Creative Communications. A passion for modernist furniture, she collects vintage pieces from the 50ies and 60ies period of Scandinavian design. Monika lives is Milan but when possible she spends time at her Ligurian country house, studying and working on new interior design projects.

                  Why the Owner Chose Castiglione Chiavarese:
                  I bought this property when it was just an abandoned romantic ruin completely embraced by a huge wisteria tree. I was looking for a country retreat, not too far from Milan (2 hours drive) close to the sea and the Riviera climate but with the privacy of a country house.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  Beautiful designed and very well equipped property very close to the magic Cinque Terre and Portofino. 15 minutes ride to the 'Silent Bay' of Sestri Levante (sandy beach and aperitivi watching the sundown. Great creative country eatery 2km away. Walking distance (steep stairs- good exercise) to the village shop and bar.
