We've been looking for a house in the Aosta Valley for some time haven't yet found the right house on the market through the normal agencies.
Bard (Aosta Valley)
Bard is a town in the Aosta Valley region of northwestern Italy. It is part of the Unité des communes valdôtaines du Mont-Rose. Fort Bard is a fortified complex built in the 19th century by the House of Savoy on a rocky prominence above the town. After many years of neglect, it has been completely restored. In 2006 It reopened to tourists as the home for the Museum of the Alps. The fort also has art exhibitions. In the summer, the main courtyard is used to host musical and theatrical performances.
