We were on our way back from Avignon to Arles and took a more scenic (TomTom!) return trip and came across this absolute delight. How wonderful to see a complete castle instead of ruins. The whole of the castle is available for viewing and the...More

The castle is very good however the man at the door (watch out for him he has dark long scraggly hair and is in his 50s) pretended not to have any change. After I gave him a 10 euro note, he refused to give me...More

Reasonably well preserved castle, with many rooms and fabulous views. For anyone interested in the Middle Ages, a must-see.

We explored the chateau (castle) during a day trip to Tarascon from Avignon. The visit is really worth the effort. You can explore all 4 levels and the roof, by ascending stone spiral staircases. The building itself is in very good repair, and the architecture...More

Erected on the border between France and Provence. Opposite castle Beaucaire. Nice visit at 9.30 in a completely deserted complex. Understand that a building of such magnitude is suitable for art exhibitions. Unfortunately, the quality of Pascal Monteil's art is not high enough to compete...More

On the final day of a two week trip through northern Italy and Provence, we visited this castle on the whim of my father-in-law (FIL). Earlier in the trip we passed Tarascon on our way from Nimes to Arles and my FIL remarked that there...More
