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.
Fenis is a town and comune in the Aosta Valley region of north-western Italy. It is especially known for Fénis Castle, one of the most famous castles in Aosta Valley. For its architecture and its many towers and battlemented walls has become one of the major tourist attractions of the region. Despite its impressive defensive structure, the castle is situated at the top of a small knoll and not of a promontory or another inaccessible and easily defensible place. In fact it was not built for military purposes, but to serve as a prestigious residence for the Challant family. It is today owned by the Autonomous Region Aosta Valley, which turned it into a museum.
