    • In the heart of the Isle Gorge, this imposing castle dates back to the 12th century. Remodeled during the Renaissance, it was decorated by Antoine Chapelle, 1st Earl of Jumilhac (1597), with fairytale roofs with allegorical ridges surprising for their mysterious diversity.

      Transformed and decorated with French-style terraced gardens by François, 1st Marquis of Jumilhac (1655), it evokes by the Chamber of "La Fileuse" (legend and frescoes), the "à la Reine" staircase, the Grand Salon panelled, the Louis XIII sculpted wooden fireplace, the Louis XV lounge, painted canvases and brass in battery... the social and military rise of its builders, the Jumilhac became Duke of Richelieu in 1822.

      Castle open all year round except Christmas and New Year's Day.

      From June to September, every day from 10am to 7pm (departure every 20'), with night visits (candles, torches, music and costumes) on Tuesdays at 9.30pm (plus Thursdays in July/August).

      From April to May and from October to 15 November, every day from 2pm to 6pm.
      Outside these periods, Saturdays and Sundays from 2pm to 6pm or by appointment (06.09.61.61.78.40).

      The gardens, restored on two themes associated with the history of the Château : Gold and Alchemy, are accessible from May to October during the opening hours of the Site, in an autonomous way (30'), associated or not with the visit of the Château.
      The roofs (30') are open only to visitors of the Castle with an extra charge of 2€ and according to the availability of a guide.

    This castle is by far the most fairy-tale castle I've seen during my recent trip to France. Although the place could do with some repairs it's still stunning to look at. We only visited the garden so...
