Situé en dehors des chemins traditionnels des châteaux de la Loire. Ce château mérite un petit détour Quand on l'aperçois de la route il est superbe, il date du XVIIe siècle.

This castle is worth a detour when we see him from the road it is superb, it dates back to the 17th century. The particularity of this castle like no other is that it combines history, contemporary art, the supernatural, the strange originally there is the will to recreate a cabinet of curiosities in the spirit of the Renaissance. There are strange animals, monsters and the famous Cockatrice a monster that has haunted the moat of the Castle. Regarding contemporary art he must say them is so-called works are sometimes surprising see confusing. "" And I find it hard to understand what that we call a work and that for me is a delirium of "artist" the treasure of this castle is his gallery or 15 murals trace the war of Troy and the Aeneid. At the entrance a little note helps you understand these masterpieces; (Bravo for this initiative) See also the magnificent ceilings and the Royal as well as another room, richly decorated room a little too can be in short, we're bored, we discover, we are surprised that out of the ordinary it is really to see

Daryna RomanovaAugust 22, 20175 stars for the Castle, it is a very well preserved, very large building for its position. I was pleasantly surprised by this castle. But I put 1 star for the exhibition of modern art that fits quite well in the frame and ruining most of the parts of the Castle. A visit to the empty Castle would have been nicer.
Martine CatteauAugust 16, 2017Great, we return with even more pleasure to the castle of Oiron... subtle and joyful mix of modern and old... Each piece deliver you new surprises... A visit without moderation... It's too bad that this castle is not better known.
G CurtilAugust 1, 2017The castle is beautiful... from the outside! The Interior is completely dedicated to exhibitions, except 1 or 2 pieces. In short, visit a showroom to the appearance of the Castle, which is a shame (to me) for a magnificent castle that should be restore. The rare appearance of the Castle, on the inside, which can be observed gives an idea of the beauty that this place should present and for an amateur, it disappoints.
