About Carlo and Helene Benedetto
I’m Helene and I moved to Italy from the UK in my early 20's just over 20 years ago. I met Carlo, my Italian husband in Milan where we still live with our young and growing family and both work in the IT industry. Milan is your typical large and boisterous European city, such a contrast to the peace and simplicity of life in Molise. I fell in love with Carlo’s native Molise on my very first visit - the gentle hills, the sea with the Maella mountain behind , it’s friendly inhabitants, old and still flourishing traditions, not to mention authentic and delicious local cuisine!
Carlo and Helene Benedetto purchased this villa in 2010
Why Carlo and Helene Benedetto chose Montenero di Bisaccia
I loved our holidays with Carlo’s family in Montenero di Bisaccia and was thrilled to find that an old masseria as they are known locally, one we’d always admired, with fantastic views, was on the market. The Masseria had originally housed a couple of livestock workers and their families with a large cowshed downstairs and an annex next door housing a herd of sheep and a large wood fired oven. My father in law, retired local butcher, had bought the last of the cows 30 years before, after which the farmers moved out and the masseria fell into disuse. Externally, we faithfully rebuilt most of the Masseria but we opted for a brighter and more spacious interior. Thanks to the usually good Molise weather, we now spend as much time there as we can....all year round!
What makes this villa unique
Less than an hour’s drive from Pescara airport and only 10 minutes to the nearest beach, Villa Masseria commands fabulous views all-round. On the Abruzzo/Molise border, it allows for easy access to both regions. Recently renovated, the villa has all modern comforts and is cool in the summer and warm in the winter. A five minute drive from the nearest supermarkets, bars and restaurants, it offers a quiet and relaxing location without been too isolated or far from amenities.
