(340+ reviews on the web)
Castle
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.

  • has first view the castle is worth, because you have to walk around to finally be able to visit it we did the tour with our 7 year old daughter, who was thrilled, there are provisions for children games, and even a small hut a drink a treasure hunt will delight children a big thank you to our Pauline guide :)

  • The guide is very nice is revives really this castle in ruins, very interesting a pity there is not more animation for holiday makers and lack of a reward at the end of the survey week sorry it is probably used to all the other visits that could be made or the children were always an image, medal or other... but it is still a good output and a good time to share I recommend.

  • 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

  • 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.
