Château de Talmont was burned down by Louis VII in 1138, but even still it has remained in the family. The ruins of the castle are a historical monument that harkens memories of knights and armor, flags and battles. Stroll the grounds and complex to discover crumbled ramparts being reclaimed by nature, and stones that tell stories of Richard the I of England, who was lord of Talmont for 17 years.

  • Very interesting castle remains linked to Richard the Lionheart. Much of the interior has gone but there is much to see, and lots on offer too (archery, period dressing, horse and Eagle displays).
  • Love the castle, kids enjoyed the treasure hunt type game. Not much going on as it was late September, but the ruin itself is impressive.
