Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • An extra family visit. Long live the knights who have enjoyed. A quick tour of the store and purchase essential swords!

  • Great story that was brought. Is obviously in French what my son did not understand but he was so impressed with the action that he doesn't mind was made.

  • Through the Sables D'olonne, a detour to Christine and its castle (in city centre) and its reconstructions shows, you will not be disappointed.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • good
  • Always fun to visit a historical site
  • Well worth a visit but not a lot happening in June. Nice lakeside walk 100 metres away.
