Château de Talmont, Talmont Saint Hilaire

(4.3/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Château de Talmont was burned down by Louis VII in 1138, but even still it has remained in the family. The ruins of the castle are a historical monument that harkens memories of knights and armor, flags and battles. Stroll the grounds and complex to discover crumbled ramparts being reclaimed by nature, and stones that tell stories of Richard the I of England, who was lord of Talmont for 17 years.

  • Right of passage I discovered a lovely Castle which must be full of history. I did do the trick but it must be worth it to come when there is the summer activities. I'll be back

  • Very nice site, we did a free visit, but a lot of explanations all along who can learn a lot about this historical place

  • Stayed 2 years ago in summer where it is very lively: ability to shoot crossbow, writing to the former, possibility of dressing up, nice to visit Castle. Everything to delight the children also. And here visit in January although it was quieter but the site is still as magical and stories.

  • In season, really good animations of horsemanship and falconry, with the story of Richard Coeur de Lion (in French, with live song!) Guided tours in French & English (all included in ticket price). Made me proud to be a citizen of Greater Normandy!
  • Great and cool day and great spectacles.
  • Great place to spend a few hours for kids and the whole family. The bird show was great. They flew right over our heads. Crossbow shooting was fun and the family can dress up and play medieval games. Young kids can complete a knight obstacle coarse and get knighted.
  • We visited on a whim and were very glad we did. Well presented, not too stuffy. They gave the four of us a guided tour in English. The middle ages arms presentation by Hubert the Chevalier and Rufus the Peasant was funny and informative. Also: great views.
