  • The guided tour is every hour. Otherwise visit the interesting Park because the panels tell the life of Montaigne and his entourage, and beautiful trees with their name. Sale of wine of the "Château de Montaigne". From the courtyard, beautiful view of the Castle.

  • Montaigne Castle is private property. You will only see the front. Only the tower and the Park can be visited. The guide is exciting, we learned a lot of little details on the life of Montaigne. The price of the tour is excessive for a small Tower. Wine of the Castle, boff not the best of the region

  • Do not confuse Tower and Castle... Two different things. The castle is private property and cannot be visited. The Tower on the other hand, can be visited (guided tour only). Where how to go on the trail of Montaigne, who lived here. At the end of the visit, free tasting of the wine "Château Michel de Montaigne". This isn't an essential part of the region but ultimately it is quite frequented and enjoyable to do (I recommend in the morning).
