Chateau de La Rochefoucauld, La Rochefoucauld

(4/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
With a rich history reaching as far back as the 11th century, the is known primarily for its distinct architecture. The main attractions include a grand staircase and galleries that are said to have been constructed based on the designs of the legendary Leonardo Da Vinci himself during the 16th Century. Although there have been a number of changes and renovations that have taken place since then, visitors can still take guided tours of the libraries, furnished rooms, and even the building’s underlying foundations. Even though most of the castle is open to the public, one wing of the castle is still occupied by the Duke and the Duchess.

  • I had the opportunity to visit a few years ago during a school trip, we were received by the lady herself, tour, to recommend, they also offer shows and you can have a picnic nearby. Wood that is adjacent to the castle of La Rochefoucauld allows to walk with the family and for some time it is equipped with a fitness trail, notice to athletes! (I put June 2016 because this is the month my visit)

  • Of course, we should not expect the visit of the Palace of Versailles... This castle is still inhabited by the owners, and we imagine that the management of a large Castle is not easy every day! Interesting tour (including basements!) individual and guided tour of the library and the archives room. Take your time to admire all the details of the arcades.

  • Beautiful architecture adorns this castle. You can visit the old, but very pretty, libraries with a guide as well as the "treasures" (archives of the time) who are really worth the look! In addition, access to the basement, so we can go around sort of caves under the Castle, is quite unusual and very friendly. In short, it's a castle not to Miss
