  • Pretty Castle renovated at the end of the XIXth century. The guided tour is disappointing and expensive (€11). It does nothing more than visible signs free visit.

  • This castle of the 12th century was dismantled in 1789 and deprived of his Dungeon. It took until the end of the 19th century back its appearance from the 15th century through Sadi Carnot, which financed its restoration. The distance became a pretty stately fortress to the multicolored rooftops. The visit is free and well-informed by a booklet included with the purchase of tickets. The castle is beautifully furnished, to see the kitchen, the guard room, the chapel. The well dug in the rock in the cour d'honneur is 70 metres deep. Access to the coastal path to admire closely the beauty of the glazed tiles from Burgundy.

  • A beautiful preserved Castle, worth a visit. Is very nice located. Also small bar with outdoor terrace to enjoy a glass of wine to drink.

  • 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.
  • Stopped off here for a couple of hours during a wine tasting tour. Lovely place, and has an air of magic about it. I could have spent hours, if not days, exploring.
  • Beautiful from the outside but the guts are poor and too small for the price you pay (8 EUR or 6 EUR for kids)
  • The young lady taking the tour was careful to stress the tour would only be in English if no French speakers joined us; fortunately, our party of three were the only ones who arrived, so she was kind enough to give us a personalised tour! The chateau is absolutely stunning, with beautiful views both inside and out. The guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about every room and all its items - she did an amazing job. It really was a pleasure to visit! Fair notice: some staircases go pretty high, and some parts of the self-guided tour aren't for anyone with a fear of heights.
  • We visited this castle on a guided bike tour, great experience !
