The "de Carvalho de Puppi" holiday homes are 3 rustic Friulian nobles, from the beginning 1500, of the assets of the Family de Puppi. The buildings, of particular architectural interest, are accessed from a typical Friulian courtyard enriched with a centuries-old mulberry tree and other essences. On the back of the large park behind, the central avenue winds from the "2 stones". On a particular area of the property, the 26 July 1267, the Count of Gorizia chained the Patriarch of Aquileia. Therefore the fund was desecrated and excluded from the payment of the "quartese", a tribute due in the past to the parish of Villanova.
In the owner's name Marquis Charles de Carvalho de Moares de Puppi Beria of Salt and Argentina, the traditions of 3 families come together: the Portuguese paternal, the Friulian maternal and a third Piedmontese.
The father, Marchese Rodolfo de Carvalho de Moares, was Cavalry Officer and captain of the polo military team (awarded by a young Princess Elizabeth of England, now Queen Elizabeth II). The mother, Countess Agnese de Puppi, belonged to an ancient historical Friulian family, of Tuscan origin. The third surname, Beria di Sale and d'Argentina, was acquired by adoption by Elena, the last descendant of the main branch of the Beria di Sale and of Argentina, Piedmontese accounts.
In 1972 Carlo, a lover of the countryside and his own Friulian tradition, returned to Villanova del Judrio and began the restoration of the old houses.
Today it has restored with elegance, but keeping the memories of an important past, as well as the Holiday Homes "de Carvalho de Puppi", also Villa Beria in Manzano (UD), which is only 5 km from Villanova and is rented for guided tours, cultural events and private events.
