Surrounded by nature above Brusson, Fenilliaz, is located at 1641 meters above sea level in a landscape setting between woods and pastures. The area is sheltered but easily accessible from Brusson thanks to the road that leads to the Estoul-Palasina plants. The houses of Fenilliaz are almost all ancient, mostly restored and inhabited.
Among the ancient houses, in the narrow alleys often steep and rich in fountains, there is a small chapel. Narrow in an alley and flanked by a high bell-tower; the facade consists of two windows with grilles on the sides of the low door from the curious lock, with an upper rose window of semicircular shape, just below the date, MDCLXXVII. Fenilliaz is located in a mining area, crossed by the Route of the mine coming from La Croix (30 minutes). The village, moreover, is located just 873 meters as the crow flies from the entrance of one of the main mines of the complex of Chamousira-Estoul, where an old compressor is still visible at the foot of a gray rocky wall, in the woods.
