    We went to visit this castle with our 6 children and 3 years. We took a family visit. It was a great visit for children with a scenario designed for them and managed by a facilitator. We strolled in places not open to the public, the children dressed up and had a snack. On our side we also learned some information by the host on the history of the Castle.

    A visit to do with big and small, if you like the stone and the history. A beautiful collection of furniture and many other things to discover. The price is reasonable € 8 and free for children less than 25 years. With the possibility of earning € 4 for the visit to the castle of Montal in return or vice versa.

    Do not miss a trip in the batch. Near St CÉRÉ Museum which tells the story of this magical and especially exceptional place during performances of the saint CÉRÉ festival

    Beautiful castle, beautiful surroundings, but the compulsory tour is a bit off-putting, especially with kids who don't care about duke such-and-such

    Fabulous castle, outside and in. Panoramic views from top of Tower are amazing. Incredible setting.

    Small well maintained Castle, who serves on the occasion of décor for play. The morning tour only, but the guides still available the afternoon for us told his story. Small games for children so that they are a little more interested. Small medieval village has its foot and parking below (2euros).

    A magnificent remnant of the history of french heritage. The tour was welcome as this place is original. Detail practice: admission is free for children and less than 25 years - for others it is €8.
