If you're feeling energetic it's worth climbing to the top. It's not a difficult climb per se, but wear decent trainers as it's a little tricky underfoot if you're a proper townie like me. There's not much to see of the chateau at the top,...More

Both the castle and the views are impressive. You can imagine how people used to live here, with chambers and windows in perfect state of conservation. The entrance is free.

It looks rather like a fortress and although it seems quite well preserved and maintained, when we went up the hill to visit it, we were the only living creatures. Nice if you want to take a picture, but nothing special though.

A fine morning 30 minute walk. Stepping through old Chateau paths and reaching a summit with views of the river in all directions. The old ruins remind one of life long ago. Funny to see the dozens of donkeys enjoying the area as well.

Brilliant panoramic views over Valence and vallee du Rhone. A great historical medieval castle overlooking St Peray and Guilherand-Granges. Walking to the top keeps you fit, but it is worth it.

They had told us to visit the castle on a day that wasn't that hot because it is a high climbing to the castle. We made the walk of 5 km trough the woods. It was a hard climb if you not used to climbing...More

the climb up to the chateau is not as bad as you think and is is certainly worth it. the museum is a little delight and the kids will enjoy trying on the armour. the chateau itself is enjoyable but you will need your imagination....More
