    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!

    Excellent! Forget the dreadful Chateau Puymatin and spend your time and money here instead. We spent several hours slowly making our way to the top of the tower. The man in the ticket booth was helpful and a real down to earth French man. Signage/information has the right level of detail. Interesting ruins restored well and the ancient cave art presentation was an added bonus (alas not possible to go into the caves). The owner deserves congratulations for his time, money and effort. He has obviously considered it historically and holistically... a remote car park to preserve views, the 600m walk through the woods (as people would have done back when it was in use), the first magnificent view as you turn the corner, even the photo opportunity with running water in the foreground and castle on the hill. Fantastic value and brilliant experience. Don't miss it unless you hate walking.

    Impressive!!! They did a great job maintaining the castle and not taking away the original remains. It's quite bit so take your time to go through each area. Do not miss climbing to the top tower and the 360 view is incredible!!! I'd recommend going no later than 4 during November since it gets dark real fast. High recommend it!

    4 / 5 Reviews posted by Turner S (Paris, France) on 24/04/2022

    It is a well hidden chateau, difficult to drive to and another ten minute walk from the parking lot. Pro tip, don’t stop at the first parking lot, drive as close to the chateau as you can. It’s not...
