  • A magnificent Castle which it certainly cannot visit all parts because inhabited, but is a true wonder. As for the gardens, with a beauty and relaxing. Despite its proximity, first visit and a very pleasant discovery. The guide was very interesting.

  • We made the escape game of the castle of the Roche Courbon. We had a great time. The game is very well done and immersion is total. Helped by the scenery puzzles were much sought after. I recommend stop game lovers and novices.

  • This is hands down the best escape game I have ever seen ! Do not miss your chance to participate !
  • Beautiful. Wear a long flowing dress to walk around the gardens like a lady. However definitely wear jeans, good boots and a head torch to get the most out of the caves! Highly recommended day out.
  • Pretty castle with well-kept rooms, excellent guidance and beautiful garden has a human scale, mounted on poles. It's a bit expensive for a family. The caves are a bit far, but the trip is nice. .And we will definitely come again.
  • Beautifully restored, saved from ruin, prehistoric caves and museum in addition to Chateau tour.
  • If you want to feel enchantment (and like a magical princess) you must visit this land.
