Carlo De Benedetti House
He lives with his wife Silvia Monti in a large and expensive chalet in St Moritz. It is situated in one of the world’s most expensive residential areas. Many billionaires own homes in the area, for example, Andrey Melnichenko, the Niarchos family, and the Onassis family. (The last 2 photos are just sample photos, the first two are his actual house). We believe he also owns a residence in Turin, Italy.
He was the owner of a Learjet 35, with registration VH-LJH. He sold the aircraft. We were told he is now the owner of a Gulfstream G550 private jet. Unfortunately, we have not yet been able to identify his aircraft. But please do send us a message if you have information about his business jet. The photos hereunder are just samples of some of the most successful private jets on the market.
