    Extraordinary Castle by the "layers" of defenses, the speakers but also all the feints, cumulative tactics that enabled this castle will never be taken by an enemy. The guided tour is amazing. The morning if the opening is at 10: 00 the tour starts around 10:30 and is included in the price. Our guide is both enriching by its information and lively style. about required for a reasonable price in the light of the historical monument and visit 2 h. Little food, nothing that disfigures (except of incongruous "contemporary works" metal rusted perfectly ugly and sometimes pollute the look...) So is it the fate of the cultural budget and taxpayers...) Not enough to spoil the fun of a unique heritage that is worth trying.

    Plus points: * large Castle in which a good walking route is indicated. * lots to see, well maintained; a nice piece of history of this part of France. * ample parking spaces underneath the Castle, the climb to the castle itself is pretty and not really recommended for people with walking difficulties or families with strollers. Points for improvement: * we could not discover or guided tours were given in a different language (can also to our poor French) Tip: at the beginning of the day (just after opening time) it is nice and quiet and you have the least burden of crying children and/rondrennende you have the opportunity to view everything well.

    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!

    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
