Since the 11th century, one castle or another has held court where Larochette Castle now sits. A steep walk up to the castle entrance rewards you with views over the small town and the surrounding countryside. If you have a rental car, you'll find free parking at the top of the hill. Ruined castle walls weave around the hills, many marking hidden passages and tunnels that are begging to be explored. The restored section of the castle sometimes hosts art exhibits, but its old stone halls can also be toured between art shows. A cafe with a bakery on the attraction's grounds will help refresh you after your castle tour. Using our custom trip planner, Larochette attractions like Larochette Castle can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

Même si le château est en ruine, il dégage de cet endroit une atmosphère romantique et un peu mystérieuse. L'accès à pied par le village est assez sportif, ça monte raide! Une halte vraiment agréable ... more »Even though the castle is in ruins, he get out of this place a romantic atmosphere and a little mysterious. Access on foot by the village is quite sporty, it goes up steep! Really nice hotel for those who enjoy the quiet and the magnificent view.

A great place with handy illustrations of the interiors you're looking at as they were back then. No crowds, no "don't touch this, don't go there" rule, a perfect place to relax, explore and reflect. A free parking and a little birdie are included!

A nice ruïn which gives a great view over the town. Inside the ruin you find building which has information and illustrations on what you are looking at. And how it was back in the medievel times. Entrance ticket is cheap.

The views to and from the Castle are fantastic. A great place to wander around. It's nice being able to make your way around the ruins and rebuild it in your mind. The restored part is also very good. They hold temporary exhibitions etc in there, we saw a variety of art on show.

The remains are not that much, but the explanations on what is what and the restored building give an impression about life in those days, which makes it worth visiting if you are around.
