After saying in town three years in a row, we finally toured the chateau. We were surprised how enjoyable it was. An English audio guide is included. With all the amazing historic sites in the south of France it is easy to get picky. Stop by if you get a chance. Especially on a rainy day.

This castle exists since te 12th century, since then multiple changes have been done until it got it's impressive dominating form. You can see it from miles away and from the castle you have beatiful views. Worth a visit. Inside you get an overview of the history of the castle. It also serves as a museum of wine.

After having spent numerous vacations in and around Suze-la-Rousse, we finally made a point to visit the Chateau there which is also a famous University of Wine. It was definitely worth the time to see the architecture and learn the history. At the time of our visit, it was in the process of being restored as well as most of... More

I studied at the Chateau for about a week, so I had plenty of time so see all hidden corners. Lovely stop for all tourists in the area.

A beautifully restored chateau and well worth a visit. There is a lot to see and it is extremely interesting. One of the nicest aspects of our visit was that we were so warmly welcomed by the lady on reception (we had just come from Chateau Grignan where the receptionist was offhand and unpleasant). The receptionist went out of her... More

We enjoyed a nice visit to the Chateau in May 2012. (I'm a bit behind on reviewing, but was just reminiscing about it in my scrapbook last night). The visiting hours were limited, and we missed the guided tour. But they let us roam through self-guided with a booklet of information about each room. The chateau is beautiful and very... More

a intersting old building, quite well preserved with som of the original features and contents. it was a little sparse so is not worth a detour to visit it, but if you are in the area it is worth popping in.
