  • We all enjoyed the visit. It was our first chateau of such size. All my girls enjoyed walking around and inside. They all find something interesting inside. I liked fire places, Marusya liked some...

  • Beautiful chateau with a couple of rooms decorated in old style. It is a 30 minute tour, but one can stay for a longer time and analyze all the details, (titles of books in the library, paintings, decoration on furniture etc.). Fish pond on the entrance, terasse with the view. Entrance 7.5 Euros. Worth. Music room. Two were practicing Poulenc Sonata for Piano and Cello. Adequate piece of music. Lovely.
  • Beautiful and very well maintained château. There is no guidance, you just receive a flyer at the entrance and well, it’s up to you. There is no really an order to visit, the distribution is a bit disorganized, you don’t where to start. There are lots of well maintained books from hundred years ago, the chambers also. There is a salle in which you can watch the history of the château. There are also many expositions from artists that are based in Aix-en-Provence, supporting local and talented artists is amazing. You can finish your own tour in 1 hour.
  • Very well maintained chateau. English translations provided. Takes about 1h to go through. Lovely history and collections.
  • Great little so on our Louberon tour... Wonderful history and an even better wine celler you can buy from! Well worth the price of admission!
  • I’m glad we visited. The leaflet is a decent guide around the castle. Enough to show you the highlights.
