  • Prepare for a lot of steps but an enjoyable experience overall. This castle provides a lot of elements to explore and unusually eccentric sculptures spread throughout! A small guide is provided on entry in English and French respectively on each point of interest which enables you to delve deeper into the purpose of each area. Following this, each point of interest is visibly demarcated with the same description on there as the guide. The unusual aspect of this chateau is that it has a large natural cave underneath which is different to many others in the area.
  • Amazing place. Mighty imposing castle with many restored areas. Wealth of information available on site. The cave under the castle is awesome. Prepare for the steps! The effort is well worth it though. Parking is available further up the hill too. Decent value too. €29 for family of 4. Highly recommend it.
