It is pleasant and interesting to visit thanks to the documents provided. Special mention to the young lady at the reception, smiling, competent and caring. Our small daughter (6 years old) loved it!
Tres bonne brasserie mais n attendez pas à avoir un mot sympathique du patron...... Heureusement que le service est aussi assuré par une jeune dame très souriante et compétente !!! Très beau cadre. more »Very good brewery but didn't expect to have a friendly Word from the boss... Fortunately, the service is also provided by a young lady, very friendly and competent! Beautiful setting.
It's is an old ruin, you can see that it is huge, do not expect a large old castle, but for a very friendly small admission price this is a very nice stop
Worth the visit and modest entry fee
This place has a rich history. I recommend that you should visit and experience the tranquillity of the place
Beautiful castle, the view is great! Totally worth the price
