  • Came here by chance. The place is overlooked by Michelin guides, in my opinion. The castle is impressive and really worth a visit.  more »
  • Really interesting history, really friendly welcome, parts of castle very well preserved - great way to spend a couple of hours or so, especially if the children do the treasure hunt..  more »
  • Not a recent visit. I visited with my wife and my Mum when she was over on holiday. It is an interesting Castle to visit, with a very high tower.  more »
