A fairytale place among the most photographed villages in the entire region
The first time you arrive at Fontainemore on your way up the valley along the Strada Regionale, the ancient village appears to you as if by magic, gathered in the narrow spaces of the main town, with the church castled on a bank and the characteristic stone bridge.
The village of Fontainemore is an enchanting place, situated at the foot of the majestic Italian Alps. At its centre stands a splendid church dedicated to Saint Anthony Abbot, imposing in its architecture from 1494, which dominates the entire village with its stone bell tower. The village is crossed by an impetuous river, the Lys, which flows under an impressive stone bridge. The medieval stone bridge is a masterpiece of engineering and stands out against the deep green of the surrounding vegetation, creating a magical, almost fairytale-like atmosphere that invites you to make a stop.
For those in search of adventure, the Mont Mars Natural Reserve, covering 380 hectares, is located entirely within the territory of Fontainemore. The second largest in Valle d'Aosta, it extends from the hamlet of Pillaz to the peak of Mont Mars. The Reserve is an ideal destination for nature lovers and outdoor excursions, thanks to the numerous beaten tracks, but also for those who wish to combine excursion and taste, thanks to the various facilities in the area.
In general, the village of Fontainemore is a perfect place for those seeking peace and quiet, immersed in the natural beauty of the Alps and enriched by local history and culture.
