In the soothing setting offered by the Aosta Valley, there is this spectacular Medieval castle for sale.
Built in the 12th century, when it was a square keep surrounded by defensive walls. It was then transformed by Pierre Sarriod in 1260 who gave it a polygonal and almost rounded shape that still distinguishes it from the other castles in this area.
This ancient estate was heavily damaged by two big fires in the second half of the 19th century, it was then restored in the early 1900s by Sir Gonella, who put the works in the wise hands of architect Chevalley.
This fortress measures 2,500 m2 and stands on a promontory protected by the steep gorges of the Savara stream and of the Dora of Rhêmes, and surrounded by luxuriant valleys in a position that guarantees utmost privacy.
This estate has been designed with great attention to detail, its halls are finely furnished with period furniture and heavily frescoed in a way that will bring you back in time and take your breath away.
This prestigious estate is almost completely covered by frescoes, including walls, ceilings or door frames; they depict pastoral or allegorical scenes, inscriptions and decorations of various kinds, and constitute a priceless artistic heritage. 
This estate also includes a park, which measures 10,000 m2.
This true dream home is surrounded by the charm that comes from centuries of historical and artistic traditions; it is framed by a land of high naturalistic value, close to the National Park of Gran Paradiso and Mont Blanc.
