  • The castle is still rough, some of it is open to the public. Admirable conservation status, beautiful architecture and all colored pottery typical of the region.

  • I wish there was even more of it to see. Really special
  • Great views. Nice walk around the castle.
  • A pretty chateau. It's actually restored after being almost completely destroyed during the Revolution. So, not quite like seeing the original, but it's interesting in its own way because of that. It was reconstructed in the early 1900s.
  • Beautiful castle. We were the only ones visiting at the time.
  • Lovely Medieval Castel to visit. It doesn't take too long and has a nice small interior garden and special roof colored tiling. There is a cafe right in front we're you can get a simple lunch or a glass of wine.
