“Magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2011

Worth a detour. It's a magnificent stronghold and surprisingly not very visited by many tourists. Great for us. No lines.

“I love this fort.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

Have visited many times before and after a 10 year gap we were not disappointed. It is worth paying for the guided tour as there is access to areas that are closed off to non-payers.

“On a clear day...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2009

A good place to visit if the weather is fine. Unfortunately on a rainy day the enjoyment was limited.

“Well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2008

I was very impressed with my visit here, and am glad to have done it.
There are tours of the Fortress in French only, but even if your French is not much good, it is still worth tagging along as this is the only way to gain access to some parts of the fortress.
You are left to explore the main courtyard, chapel and stables on your own.
