Chateau de Couches, 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.

    Visiting during a walk in the quad in the region, we have lunch for our break in the castle restaurant. Very nice property, everything is renovated with taste. Our meals are hearty and well back.

    beautiful castle, you get here much of the atmosphere that the castle is carrying. too bad you for €4.00 per person only on the outside of the castle can stay and watch. making you quite tired.

    Visits starting at 10 o'clock, we had to wait for the opening. We did not visit the inside of the Castle as it was expected the guide still half an hour. What should be noted is that there is no parking. You have to park along the road, which is very dangerous. And yet, on the highway, there is a big sign that recommend this tour...

    A beautiful castle with renovations from different eras. The visit during a medieval festival was fun for our children. Unfortunately, there was little information about the history and no guided tour during the festival.

    Medieval festivals at the castle of layers! Animations and fun shows. Demonstrations of stonemason, cordier, blacksmiths and other craftsmen of the period. Musical group interpreting parts of the 13th century with the instruments of the time.

    wonderful castle with nice view, short visit and little to see although very interesting. The castle itself cannot be visited, only the dependencies are available.
