Fenis castle near the Valle D'Aosta is a small dark and brooding castle on the outside which is well preserved however it's interior is what makes it truly special. Entering the interior of the castle is an amazingly impressive wooden staircase and entry with carved wood and beautiful frescoes adorning the entire walls. Unfortunately no photos allowed inside! all of the rooms are decked out with furniture from the period to fully recreate what life would have been like in medieval times. the fireplace in the main kitchen was so large- it was designed to cook and smoke a whole cow. The architect of this castle cleverly slanted the stone window sills so used water could easily be disposed of outside without having to open the windows and risk being vulnerable.
The castle also had it's own chapel which was also adorned with beautiful frescoes which included portraits of the family who lived in the castle.
I would highly recommend this castle because it is so well preserved and fully furnished and it's wooden entry with frescoes is such a surprise.
