More I assure you that ice made in the cafes are delicious if you go in the summer.
Un lieu magnifique et très bien entretenu. Il y a un petit manque au niveau des explications historiques. more »A beautiful and very well maintained place. There is a small gap at the level of the historical explanations.
This is a really beautiful historic site. At the entrance you will find a info graphic showing the different building steps throughout the ages. After entering, arrows guide you through the site. Some show only remnants of the castle, others are gorgeously renovated, giving a picture of life in the middle ages. This place is definitely worth a visit!
Terrible experience, was locked in the dungeon area with a friend for over an hour and despite calling out no one came to help or check on us. Staff don't bother checking before locking the place up. Thankfully there was a dog somewhere outside that heard us and started to bark until a local farmer must have called the police. The police couldn't open the gate so they had to call the local mayor's office to get the details of the company that runs the place. No telephone service, no bells to tell people the place is called and no staff checking. For the price they charge they should ensure the place is empty before locking it up.
Great little castle with guide books available in multiple languages, parking was slightly lacking there is a car park for 20 cars at the top of the hill worth trying and a gravel car park that easily floods at the bottom
Pretty nice old chateau, its in ruins so dont expect to visit a nice interieur haha. Not very good for elderly people as their are many stairs so very hard to climb up! Very good for young children and adults yih can take nice pictures as you can see below.
This place is very nice, if you are in this part of France, do not miss it. I highly recommend it!
