    • Visit an exceptional stone giant!


      The castle of the Dukes of Biron is full of architectural treasures and majestic rooms that host exhibitions of contemporary art throughout the year.

      Nearly 1000 years of history have carved this stone giant, presenting at the same time a medieval, Renaissance and classical castle!

      Like an open book, the château bears witness to the extraordinary talent and inspiration of its builders.

      Walk through the old fortress rising to the clouds, and enjoy the Renaissance city whose surrounding countryside is a real garden with a southern accent.

    The castle itself is very beautiful and the location is superb, views from the castle all around are stunning. Because the castle is empty, you don't really get an idea of how it must have been living there. The experience would be much better if the rooms were decorated and furniture would be present. Nonetheless, well worth the visit.

    Very nice castle, well preserved. We had the chance to visit during a tapestry exposition. Treasury hunt for the kids made it fun for the little ones

    Beautiful medieval castle with a bar opposite the entrance. Would be 5 star but disabled access is very limited. Admire from a distance if you're in a wheelchair!

    1 / 5 Reviews posted by Fergus H on 24/10/2019

    If you are looking for family castle fun this is not the place! There was no actual activities to do just disturbing modern art. No castle history etc. and lots of empty rooms! No place for kids...
