About Maxine Morris-Zecchini

Following several trips to Italy and to the Friuli region, we decided to purchase a home nearby to our family. Luckily we found our house during a drive through the beautiful Castelnovo area. We purchased our "Capriccio" and have enjoyed many wonderful vacations there with family and friends. We live in Ancaster, Ontario Canada and try to visit our home in Italy as frequently as possible.

Maxine Morris-Zecchini purchased this chateau / country house in 2001

Why Maxine Morris-Zecchini chose Castelnovo del Friuli

We love the tranquillity of the area and the comfort of our home. We are conveniently located close to good shopping, restaurants, wineries, beaches, mountains and scenic towns. We wake to the chorus of bird songs every morning, the crow of the rooster down the street and the braying of our neighbour's donkey. Our house is practically maintenance free and we have little to do but relax and enjoy a leisurely pace. We love to visit Venice and other cities like Milan and Verona. We try to visit at least one other European country on every visit as so much is easily accessible, but are always comforted to return to the calm and comfort of Oltrerugo.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Close to everything. Beaches, wineries, skiing, golf - excellent local shopping and restaurants. The scenery is gorgeous. The air is fresh and clean, invigorates the spirit!

Easy access to other cities, countries and other cities and points of interest within Europe.
