  • 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.

  • Away from the city, the castle of access is perched on a spur overlooking the gorges of the proud. The visit is informative, rooms are beautiful, sometimes narrow passageways. Do: walk in the Park and fields nearby, up to the grave.

  • After visiting the gorges du fier, in the afternoon we headed to this castle (located a few minutes drive away). The course is headed, and not knowing very well the French driving (a lady very passionate) tried to make an effort to make us understand the explanation. For me the path in the castle was very interesting and also children present in the Group were entertained by trivia which told the Guide recommended!!

  • 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!
