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.

An amazing view of the surrounding area. Take glass in the garden of the Castle. Super friendly Manager.
This was a great experience for me because I was the only one in the castle when I went. I was able to climb the fortress walls for some good pictures. Overall, nice place
Nice place to visit. Just a small walk from the village (10min) Sit on the terrace and have a drink.
This is a see it yourself place... yours to discover. Definitely worth the hike (there is a pedestrian path from the village) and gives an interesting glimpse into the compromises of restoration vs leaving the ruins as-is.
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!
Visiting on a sunny day was a nice experience. Enjoyed it.
