Castel Gardena, built in 1616 by the counts Wolkenstein of Austria, was rescued by the Franchetti family after World War I.
Nearly every bedroom in the castle features an antique bed and a brightly-colored tiled stove, a traditional Alpine feature.
Andrea Franchetti's bedroom is pine-paneled in Alpine Renaissance style.
Heraldic crests, baroque plaster reliefs and religious icons decorate the chapel.
