Château de Biron bears a history steeped in conflict, having changed hands several times between the 12th and 15th centuries before Charles de Gontaut, duc de Biron, claimed it as his own. The present structure features additions completed over the centuries that make for an interesting ensemble: a 12th-century keep, 16th-century living quarters, a chapel, and vaulted kitchens. Locals purchased the castle in 1978, wanting to restore it. It's currently open to the public for tours--with audio-guides in English available.

Got kids? Take them here they will love it..
A great chateau to visit and one of the more well preserved ones. It has great views all over and has much to visit inside. To break up the visit inside, there’s games and activities such as archery and indoor activities to partake in at no additional cost. If you didn’t purchase an audio guide like us, you may struggle to understand and appreciate the history behind this chateau. There are QR codes at each point of interest but as we didn’t use them, we’re unsure if this provides you with any information at all. Overall a great place to visit and if your trip is limited to a few chateaus, this should be included as one of them.
