  • activities for appropriate children and a nice site. The only reservation concerns the long archery for children but many thanks anyway to the members of the association who live these activities

  • home smiling and friendly, the place is worth the visit (free). The site is even more surprising than the bottom, on the road, the castle is almost invisible... the video presentation is remarkable and deserves attention (20'). And then the site is "ruffling"

  • Beautiful castle. Lots of activities in the summer. Great for kids!
  • Super, we were lucky there was a live show with real knights! Highly recommended
  • A little expensive for not much. Or maybe get there when there are animations. The view is beautiful. But it is a castle in ruins in reconstruction. After the work of people who repeat the castles is full of merit. Beware a talkative child, there's many dangers. If not for normal children it may be a pretty decorum, ideal for the imagination.

  • There is a family at 10 euros package which is more than significant. Just spectacular. Very interesting. On the other hand, to get to the parking lot, the road is very narrow, (two cars cannot pass each other) fortunately there are a few wider passages.

  • Great visit, view stunning, simple and effective explanation of life in the middle age. In my opinion even better from the days of entertainment during the season.
