Ottavio was born in a little Sicilian village nearly 80 years ago and was the inspiration behind Nira Montana and the Le Jardin des Alpes residential development. At the age of, 25 he moved to Asia where he spent the next 40 years of his life building an incredible legacy. Upon his return to Italy, Ottavio went in search of a location in the Alps to build a hospitality business, and found it right here, in the shadow of Mont Blanc. Unfortunately Ottavio did not live to see the opening of Nira Montana which was completed by his children who put all their love for him into every detail Ottavio, as a perfectionist, would have been proud of.
Today at Nira Montana, we strive everyday to give special importance to the values and things that our founder cherished during his life: a smile above everything else, aesthetic perfection, and making you feel welcome.
