    • 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.

    A verry nice castle. Because of some movies that were made here, the castle has had a serious face lift. At some location a bit over done renovations, probably to make it look good for the movie. The tour takes you through many room and courtyard. The view from the palissade and balconies is awesome. What beautiful landscape surrounds this imposing castle.

    Beautiful castle to visit. Easy access with the parking lots. Not so many things to do for children even if they enjoyed it

  • "Overwhelmed with disappointment"

    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...
