Went with friends, if you have problem walking this is not the place for you. Also several stairs inside the house. Very interesting place you will have a taste of living in...olden days...and appreciate a modern kitchen!!!! Unusual house with good view. AVOID the torture chamber, nothing water down in there especially with children, they will have nightmares! Small gift... More

A Good fun look at how people might have lived over the centuries. Set in the rock face, it's an interesting fort. I much preferred the Chateau Commarque near by, but this fort was also very interesting none the less. Probably a lot better for kids too. As for the guy who gave this a terrible rating as they would... More

loved this castle so unusual, took a 3 year old and a 6 year old around it , a few steps up form the car park and more inside so not suitable for a pram and beware of the robotic knight this scared my 3 year old but fascinating way to spend an hour or two with young children

This place is amazing. First you have to get up the hill, we went via the dirt pathway other than the stairs, after making payment, if I remember correctly 7euros each! it was like stepping back in time, the rooms of the Chateau are all set up the kitchen with food on the table and of course the old kitchen...

This area is such an interesting area and The Maison Forte de Reignac is well worth a visit. It's a stunning sight, built into the rock and what a surprise inside. So much to see and so well put together. This fortress was where the Lord of the stronghold lived. It was in private hands until very recently when it... More

This is worth a visit, mainly because it is SUCH a strange place. A form of chateau, built into the living rock and using height as its main defence. Quite how anyone had any form of comfortable life in the place, however, is beyond me. Winters must have been a brutal experience and living quarters for the residents are quite... More

We drove a long distance to see based on reviews. Arrived at end of day but were refused admittance because (as we were lectured) there was no admittance after 6:30 as the sign below in the parking area clearly advised. We returned to the parking area where the sign said admittance was available until 7:15. We were there at 7... More

What a lovely place, way beyond expectations. Lots of effort to make it come to life, free extensive English guides offered to borrow. Older kids loved it, especially the torture exhibition at the end!!! Plenty for adults to examine as well. Lots of steps as it is quite steep in places so small kids need close supervision & not ideal... More

Little bit of history. Spent time wandering around this mansion in the cliff. Found it very interesting. We were greeted by an English women who spent time explaining to us about this place really loved this.

If you have trouble walking ,this is one to miss. No wheel chairs hear. 6 flights of stairs, plus you cannot even take a walking stick in .you must leave it at the main gate. This is to preserve the floors of the house.
