Trip Planner: Europe / France / Bourgogne-Franche-Comte / Saone-et-Loire / Couches / Historic Sites / Chateau de Couches
Admire the diverse architecture and great views over Mont Rome at Chateau de Couches, a castle that once served as the residence of Margaret of Burgundy. Opt for a full tour and view the dungeon and underground galleries from the 12th century, the tower and chapel from the 15th century, and the troubadour-style residence from the 15th century. Relax in the small but lush topiary garden, where you can gaze at the house, or view the artifacts in the chapel, including furniture, tapestries, and stained-glass windows. Some tours are offered in English but can still be difficult to understand, so consider reading up on the attraction beforehand. By using our Couches vacation planner, you can arrange your visit to Chateau de Couches and other attractions in Couches.

Child friendly visit... Very informative!
Guillaume AullenA beautiful castle with a nice Park. It is just a pity that the visit is so "flat", she brings indeed little information, or even false information. A "general public" Castle for a quick visit, but there are more interesting in the region.
Alexandre NormanVery nice site. We went there for the great medieval festival, I highly recommend!
Angelo iozzoNice place to go for a walk and meditate. ....
Christophe LOUCHARTDuring the weekend from 14/07 to 17/07, in the medieval, superb organization and welcome, we go back probably next year
