Chateau de Couches, Couches

#12 of 26 in Historic Sites in Saone-et-Loire
Castle Tourist Spot
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.

  • We (my son 13 years and her MOM) tested the new digital game for a fun tour of the Castle and its gardens. It is a treasure hunt to find it via a mini tablet of the QR codes hidden in the 4 corners of the Park and in the Castle. More: fun way for children - discovery of places not traditionally public access - no waiting for the visit. Cons: the first 3 tablets were not functioning, the 4th was good - children will be interested that from 7-8 years (this is a historical visit!) In the end: I recommend to test this digital tour. And hospitality was very good both smile as for the explanations that we were given upon delivery of the tablet.

  • Nice medieval festival: however disappointed that the Castle don't visit inside. The outside is nice, but no more: I saw more interesting castles in the region.

  • The weekend of 15-16 July 2017 sees this impressive feudal Castle open festivities. A Caravel is reconstituted. An elephant walking (we could do without). A beautiful moment in any case to live in families, but the historian will find his account because the explanations of the guides are good. Animations are moving away from the historical veracity, but is it important to make dream the Brats? A visit not to be missed I think.
