  • This is a very beautiful castle on the outside and inside aesthetics is really interesting; beautiful furniture, beautiful pictures and lots of pretty things. I avoid the comparisons for heritage or for restaurants. Unlike other reviewers, I have not found the excessive price of admission. I just wish that the treasure room is closed, and this following a burglary several years ago: this indicated clearly nowhere

  • Very beautiful castle with a somewhat summary explanatory booklet for my taste, very well furnished, with a nice garden, if you're in the neighborhood n visiting be sure to you stop

  • Montresor has an arrangement with several other chateaux. Buy one full price ticket at one and the others will give a reduced price if the original full price ticket is presented. My advice is to organize your trip so you visit Montresor last. The ticket seller will confiscate the original ticket and you will not be able to get the discounts at the other chateaux.
  • Very nice place. One of the anciest castles in the region (XI century).
  • Beautiful place, one of the best in France!
  • Beautiful small village, and very quiet. The chateau guards over the town, and is visible from just about everywhere.
  • Nice place
