  • I visited the castle of access during the last days of the heritage. The site is notable. It's beautiful on the outside. The inside isn't very interesting at first glance because it hard to imagine the life of the time. But collections brought by Mares are still to be seen. The heritage days offer only a too superficial overview because there is the world, and no tour complete. Even if it isn't necessarily what you are looking, I think that in this case, the guided visit because the history of this castle and the Savoie is absolutely exciting. I will return for a guided tour. Attention, the castle is closed out of season. Thus, the gorges of the proud just next door, where can do a nice walk, which well complete the visit to the castle for the cultural aspect.

  • I passed by it while I was walking in the old town. Its architecture is nice (not very unique). I could not go inside. However, it is good to see it and take photos there :)  more »
  • By visiting the gorges of the proud, we passed the castle of access, very beautiful building that overlooks the gorges and the view is awesome on the surroundings, too expensive price, the castle is well maintained, rooms are well furnished, the Dungeon is to do, because very beautiful panoramic view. Nice collection of weapons.

  • You have to wait and go round with the next tour guide, can't wander on your own, but it's well worth it. The castle was briefly owned by an eccentric collector in early 1900s, then donated to the Academie Florimontaine (who still own it and probably haven't changed anything much), so it's full of his vast collections of old weapons, eastern curiosities, ceramics, lace, huge Flemish tapestries, some amazing bronze friezes, and... Napoleon's death mask! An Academie guide did our tour, which focusses on the collections; very enthusiastic; it's in French, but a printed English summary for each room is provided. The castle itself is lovely and more coherently developed than the Annecy chateau-museum. You get to see five rooms plus the keep tower. Amazing 14C stone spiral staircase in Nun's Tower with steps and central rail made from single slabs.
  • Only possible to view with guide, wich was an hour wait. Insane!
  • Poor communication for the or even dishonest heritage days. Otherwise the castle is very interesting, the temporary exhibition on African arts is a must see!

  • A superb Castle to visit, the place is magical and the guide knows very well the history of Haute-Savoie, which can sometimes be a bit long for the little ones... but history buffs will love!
