You have to be prepared for a lot of stairs and uneven cobbles when visiting this place so it wouldn't be suitable for wheelchairs or push chairs. I visited with my mother who did find it a bit of a struggle but she and I...More

Standing up on a hill, the chateau can be seen from miles away on a clear day. The self-guided tour started at the chapel and went on to the different towers, rooms and courtyard. Because it was built and add-on between 12th and 18th century,...More
