  • Drive to Chateau was nice. No information provided for tour times. Only French speaking tours but guides dress and re-enact and tell stories from medieval times. Worth going to if there is nothing else to do.
  • Worth the trip up there just for the views alone. Unfortunately there is no photography allowed in castle. You also have to take a guided tour. The fee was fair, and there wasn't many people. The drive up there had minimal signage, but the GPS managed to get us there. The castle has various rooms to see that are decorated in traditional linens. It is a functioning castle with a family living there so there are portions of the castle that are not available for viewing. If you are in the area and have a car to drive up to the castle, it'll be well worth it!
  • Absolutely amazing castle and view. This part of France is definitely on the top of the 'Most Beautiful Places In The World' list. Enjoy !
  • Nice place but be a ware it's open in 1st of May
  • Closed until 1st of may 2017. Didn't find anything on the website about this before :(
