    Although in recent years, the summer theater festival of does not happen again, the visit of the castle remains an essential step of this beautiful region. With Taizé either out of curiosity or for a moment of meditation, Cormatin will seduce you.

    It's a magnificent Castle which is very well maintained with a nice Park that surrounds it. It's not like in Burgundy but rather to the castles of the Loire. The castle is surrounded by water, which adds to the charm of the building. Entry free visit is € 6. We came there by bike from Green Lane coming from Cluny. Too bad that it was not harrows to bikes to tie the bikes.

    There are rooms perfectly preserved which will leave you in awe, also an amazing French garden, maze, and an elevated bird cage to enjoy the views. Highly recommend.

    The gardens are fantastic, especially for kids. Castle is nice, with special mentions to the stair case which is a work of art in itself.
