  • After taking the time to check on the site of the Aude the castle was open, it was the case of 10 h to 17 h, every day, doing more than 50 kilometers to go, we found the door closed, many private property signs a healthy serving of home wooden hut and poles uprooted. Yet a sign at the entrance confirmed the opening of the place! Phone call, answering machine, is unclear even if it is in line with the Castle. The musicians is yet very beautiful. We have the distinct impression that the castle is very empty and abandoned.

  • This was frustrating: I love castles and had carefully planned my trip to include Puivert, whose opening times I checked... I arrived on Monday 18th December in the early afternoon and the gate was fi...  more »

  • While at a 5€ entrance fee, this privately owned castle is still worth a stop. You can park your car uphill at the parking spot right next to the castle, so it is one of the most accessible chateaux for people that can only bear a short walk. The gentle music playing at the minstrel's chamber is inspiring, and the view of the valley, village and lake on top of the castle is stunning. Children adore running around in these ruins, keep them closer by while climbing the tower though. Don't expect any extra explanations, the management seems a bit overburdened. A castle with a more 'gentle' history, compared to the other ones in the region...
  • The best thing about Puivert Castle is definitely the views from the top. You can see for miles around and that alone is worth the 5€ entry fee. The castle itself is delapidated and dirty which is a shame. There are some notice boards explaining the history of the castle and a few exhibits but they aren't great quality. Go for the views, and if you aren't driving be prepared for a steep up hill walk!
  • Worth going inside to see, look unassuming but inside is great and the view from the roof is stunning.
  • Incredible. 5 euro entry fee and a crazy drive up but well worth it
  • Typical private owned chateau. Bit down at heel but the perfect shape for a castle.
