This castle was unique and updated to project what the rooms might have looked like centuries ago. Many place settings at two enormous tables seating over 20 guests. Two bedrooms done in authentic wood beds made for a King. The court yard had a beautiful...More

Lovely castle, nicely preserved and renovated, accepting Heritage Cards. The setting is very pretty, amongst the rushing rivers. Paid parking is available in a nearby lot. The access to many of the towers is via tiny circular staircases but very much worth it! The exhibition...More
