About Franco and Monica Novi
My wife Monica was born and raised in Oleggio Castello, and that is why we chose this area as the right place to build our Villa in the Country side. Where we can celebrate events, Christmas gatherings with the bigger family, and also parties and reunions with friends of a lifetime.
Franco and Monica Novi purchased this Villa in 1988
Why Franco and Monica Novi chose Oleggio Castello
This property was passed down through generations. It was only in 1988 that it was decided to took over what was left in ruin for decades and restore this Villa to be the family country house. it took 6 years for works to be completed and for the family to have the first gathering in 1994.
What makes this Villa unique
