The Château de Rully is a castle in the commune of Rully in the Saône-et-Loire département of France. Located on the side of a hill, the castle dominates the whole region, facing the plain leading to the Saône. To the west, it commands the valley towards Nantoux and Chassey-le-Camp.DescriptionAt the end of the 14th century, the castle consisted of a square keep, three round corner towers and one flanking tower. All the elements are connected by curtain walls with a covered round walk, and crenelated at the top. There was a and protective broad, deep moat surrounding the base, as well as a single drawbridge, the location of which is still visible on the southern face. In the 15th century, the Saint-Leger family added, on the east, north and west of the interior courtyard, a succession of buildings with splendid oak woodwork, supporting the corbelling of the round walk which was covered with flat Burgundian tiles. At the end of the 19th century, alterations concealed certain aspects of the mediaeval structure. For example the moat was filled in, the drawbridge and the large, protective, courtyard doors were removed, and a neo-Gothic building with machicolation inside the courtyard at the foot of the keep was constructed.

    Visits around the castle interior only with guided groups €8 per person. No wine tasting on site without prior arrangement with owner. For tastings of wine grown around the chateau go to Antonin Rodet...  more »

    We did the hunting to eggs in the Park against our will because we wanted to visit the Castle but it was closing. We have still had a good time. The Park is nice!

    Not bad but the boxwood garden are all dead giving an apocalyptic landscape. The Castle deserves attention because the young guide who was with us was as friendly to forgive.

    Great castles, beautiful military architecture, superb dependencies. It's the same family from the beginning. Dominating the plain of the Saône, this castle is a must.
