The sumptuous Chateau-Abbaye de Cassan rises from the midst of vineyards...

The sumptuous Chateau-Abbaye de Cassan rises from the midst of vineyards and olive groves. A modest monastic retreat which became a powerful royal priory then a sumptuous princely dwelling, the castle houses a vast Romanesque church (XIIth cen.) And an abbey palace (XVIIIth cen.), Warranting the name of the little Versailles of Languedoc. Here the past breathes through the coolness of the secular stonework. This historical site is a genuine showcase for a number of cultural events. Individual visits from 16 April to 30 october 2016. - April, May, June and September: open every day for visits, 2.00/7.00Pm. - July and August: open every day for visits, 11.00Am/7.00Pm. - October, open weekends only, 2.00/7.00Pm.

Although the restoration is a work in progress it was an interesting visit. When we were there we were the only two visitors. They have concerts in the old chapel which I would have loved to attend.

The kitchen is most interesting. The church's representation of stained glass windows creative. The second floor is still being renovated so not accessible at this time. Definitely worth the visit.

We visited this beautiful building after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. It is best approached from Gabian side where you can appreciate the scale of its facade. At present only the ground floor is open to the public but there is enough to see there. Informative panels in French, English and German are scattered around the place. The staff are very... More

A fabulous building in a lovely setting. Visible from across the valley this imposing chateau is rather unloved inside. There seems to be a feel of a place that those who are there really want to care for and love but there is insufficient money to do so. The church has an amazing barrelled roof but is bare of decoration.... More

We were a family group of 8 (aged 5-85). Our tour guide was Julia and she was very thoughtful about pace, shade and ensuring everyone was engaged. There are treasure hunts for little ones and lots of quirky details about the previous occupants, decoration and uses of the Chateux etc. It has a fascinating history and is destined for a... More

Its a great place from the Outside, inside needs a lot of TLC, the owners have been saying for at least 5 years they are doing it up. Yes its worth a peek and it could be simply stunning if it was restored back to its former glory

At an unimposing place between two villages you'll find the imposant Chateau - unfortunately closed at the day of our visit, but you can go surround the walls and have amazing views on an impressive and cultural important building
