    Interesting place to visit, nice activities and staff. Beautiful surroundings. It's a bit of a walk from the parking.

    We loved this place and spent three hours total exploring the ruins. The castle has been brought back to life with a lot of love and many details have been added to tell about its past and the people who lived there. The whole place almost comes to life! Especially the caves and information on murals were interesting. Beautiful views around the valley, you can even go up to the tower. Can highly recommend this for history lovers!

    We walked to this as the mid point of a circular walk. Very impressive as you exit the woodland walk and there it is: a part restored medieval castle which gives a great feeling for how a few noble houses were protected by the lord of the castle. Don't drive to it, walk!

    A LONG walk in from the parking lot takes you to a ruined chateau with little of interest and little explanation of its history and why it is significant. It's an archeological work in progess that...
