    Had just visited the nearby troglodyte village and fort so was not convinced this would be interesting from the internal photos. However the photos don't do justice to how fascinating this fortified house is to tour around for a real feeling of medieval living as a nobel. All the exhibit/tour posters were in French but we were given a very informative English folder containing translations. Do not miss.
