  • What an amazing Castle to find in at the top of the mountain’s. Some old fashioned shops still being used on site. Two great shops to buy food and drinks on site as well. Plenty of parking and a lovely picnic area and food van just opposite the car park. If you are in this area please do come and visit this most beautiful place. We were in Saint Cyprien and it was a 45 min drive. Plenty of other places to visit up there as well
  • Beautiful medieval village and castle! Well worth the 5 euros entry to the castle, the views from the top are impressive! The village is full of art galleries and picturesque restaurants.
