Issogne Castle is a luxurious Renaissance residence which belonged to the Challant’s family from the 14th until the 19th centuries. Entering the castle, we are welcomed by the famous frescoed “lunettes”, scenes from everyday life and by the famous wrought-iron pomegranate fountain.

Fénis castle is the most famous and visited castle in the Aosta Valley. It is an example of medieval castles with its towers, loopholes and boundary walls. It is a fascinating place built between 14th and 15th centuries by the the aristrocratic Challant’s family

Sarre Royal Castle mentioned during the 13th century, belonged for centuries to families until 18th century, when it was bought by businessman Jean-François Ferrod, who renovated it before going bankrupt. In 1868 it was bought by King Vittorio Emanuele II, the Hunter King, and was the headquarter for hunting expeditions in the Gran Paradiso Valleys. In that period all interiors were restored for the King’s needs. His son, Umberto I, renovated the castle and built the Hall of Trophies, decorated with antlers of ibex and chamois.
