  • We must return regularly visit this castle to see the annual progress both at the level of restoration campaigns than the proposed new activities. Great restoration work, backup and mediation of our heritage so! Congratulations to the teams and to the owner because we must remember that without their work this castle will certainly exist.

  • On holiday in June 2017 in Espalion, I went with my wife to see and possibly visit the castle of Calmont. Having made the tour of the surrounding castles, we were surprised, it's the ruin of the ramparts of Calmont bunch. But as we were before, we talked to enter to do 2 or 3 pictures. We arrive at a machine and surprised, asked 18 euros. Explaining to us that this sum actually covers the medieval animations kids, because unlike the castles of the Loire, where you have all the interiors to visit, here is there only crumbling walls! We have explained to the hostess that has our old age, we were not interested and simple photos would make our happiness. This employee we well accurate than if you went on the site for 2 hours or 2 minutes rate was 18 euro! So I had the idea of making the turn of the ramparts, and as I expected, I found a passage in the undergrowth, small opening leading us inside. Total surprise, ruins, of the never before seen! and yet we have visited hundreds of castles! An animation having begun, we found crazy extras in costume, from the big band-aid! a set show staged by a Jacqouille worthy of the name. The kids really looked for if emm... strongly bored! We still held 30 minutes! No photos, too bad! Returning to the parking lot, we heard the comments of those who thought to have been stolen. 2 adults and 2 children 36 euros! Not recommended strongly!

  • We decided to go to the Castle at the time days "witches and pumpkins" organized for Halloween. We knew the place but enjoyed the moment. For the occasion a treasure hunt was organized on the theme of Halloween. The children are left with their degrees. Firing demonstration, tastings of hot chocolate and roasted chestnuts have allowed us to spend a nice time. Again...

  • An old monument full of history but especially history of volunteers dedicated, exciting knowing share their passions. Regular entertainment! A see by taking the time to soak up the place!

  • A castle superbly restored by an association of great enthusiasts. Lack of pace in the animations that requires a lot of patience for young children (4 and 2 years for mine) especially by high heat. Can be so not enough suitable for those ages there.

  • Very nice, beautiful point of view of the Tower, there are days of entertainment for children. The guided tour is rich enough.
