  • I'll often see and review this castle. Every time I learn new and exciting stories. Great when it is accompanied by a guide. I'm going with friends and my little girls, ages 9 and 5, who also love this place. We play and we discovered and rediscovered. Not practical for people with disabilities, it must be said that at that time he had no wheelchair... (humor)

  • Well-marked easy access, free parking at the entrance of the castle when there is too much world if the parking is against low monument... There are tables in a little under wood next to the Nice parking for Spades fuck... good value for the free tour... visit free but well explained and marked in order to explore the most of the ruins in very good condition... for us the visit lasted about 2 hours by taking his time... predict good shoes... point of view... and let your imagination invade you... good visit... in the end very pleasantly surprised... again...

  • During our stay in the region they advised us to go see this castle. Good choice. It is a magnificent Castle which allows more to enjoy great views. We had not taken a guide and it's kinda our regret! But it will be the opportunity to do so at a future stay. Recommend without hesitation.

  • 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!
