  • This is a definite must-see spot when you're in the region. There is plenty of parking at the bottom of the chateau, and it's well worth the climb up (along a road) to the chateau. I don't remember....  more

  • One of the best castles I've ever visited in my life. Yes, it's not fully intact, because repairs have probably been done until the ancient family lived here until 1950, but it's fully open. It means you can go and discover every angle and imagine yourself back in time. The castle was a particular building built on top of a cliff, at which base there is a natural cave passing through, that originally was used as a depot. The entrance fees, 9.5 euros, are really worth it. And we had the chance to get guided at the beginning from the lady in site that gave us a good overview of the local history, the castle and its proprietors.
  • Great castle to visit, the tour can take more than an hour! Well worth the climb to the panaromic roof of the Don Jon, where you'll have views over the whole valley. The village below is also extremely beautiful!
