Italian Castle fit for a King
An abandoned 15th Century Italian Castle has been converted into fabulous apartments in Liguria. Fieschi Castle is nestled in the hills of this picturesque region.
The castle was derelict for decades and has been magically transformed. There are four basic bedrooms available for overnight stays, the perfect stopover for visitors to the region.
The small castle is located in the hills behind the city of Genoa in the rural village of Senarega. It dates back to the 15th century and was originally used for aristocratic gatherings and as a defence base. The castle’s history continued when it became a prison. From the 1830's to the 1980's it also became a school.
The interior and exterior of the castle have been renovated to offer four bedrooms, four bathrooms and kitchen and living room areas for guests. The castle is also available for ceremonies, exhibitions, conferences and private parties.
Overnight stays start from £47 per night for a double room and £73 for a quadruple room.
The area surrounding Senarega has a wide network of trails making Fieschi Castle a perfect overnight stay for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
