Overview
More
With its pointed turrets standing out from the surrounding woods, the castle of Queen Margarita of Savoy looks straight out of a fairy tale. Though it was built on models of the late Middle Ages, it dates from the early Twentieth century. It was then equipped with the latest technical equipment of that time, and it is surrounded by a large park with all the dependencies and a rocky Alpine garden with many botanical species. The interior still shows part of the original furnishings: paintings, stained glass, wood panelling, coffered ceilings and furniture made according to the taste of the Queen, she is evoked in all its parts by the flower bearing her name. The tour includes the ground and the first floor, connected by a spectacular wooden staircase with griffins and eagles.

Regina Margherita of Italy is famous in the whole world. Many people don’t realise this. Pizza Margherita is named after her; allegedly she didn’t like anchovies - these were dutifully removed from Pizza Napoletana when she lived with the Prince Consort in Naples and Pizza...More

Seeing the shooting of a movie in these places can make your mind come back to daydreaming. What you see and what surrounds it can stimulate the imagination and tell stories of the regime but also of characters from the fantastic woods.

Very nice palace that tells the big love of MARGHERITA for Gressoney and the Monte Rosa. The tour is guided by very competent people. Sure deserve a visit if you are in Gressoney

From Donnas Italy we drove the beautiful windy road (SR44) up to Gressoney & took a tour of castle Savoia. The tour is only in Italian. The views are just breathtaking. The whole drive up there & back made for a perfect day.

A 20 minute walk from the centre of Gressonney St Jean, which is worth a visit (delightful coffee and light lunch at the Cafe Pinter), the Castel Savoia is an impressive grey-stone, many-turretted 19th century castle built as a summer residence for Queen Margaret of...More
