    The castle is worth a visit, but the guide (which is actually a historian) is worth the trip! If you want to grow, to learn, to love the story... go there without hesitation. One downside but it is not serious at all and is the result of passion and the enthusiasm of the guide, that is, likes to share his knowledge... the visit may last longer than expected. Then arrange accordingly. Frankly it's good. Blown away by the scene and comments.

    We recommend this immersion in the middle ages life-size! It starts with a warm welcome to the tourism office, and continues during a guided tour inside the Castle. An expert guide on the subject, which will make you live the story of Billy around the Castle, as if you were there! Nearby, do so pause lunch or dinner at the hostel du Pont, to a culinary experience!
