“Visit to the Chateaux of Bourdeilles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

It is more than two years ago now when We visited the two chateaux at Bourdeilles. The visit was commentated by a local Frenchman who was very enthusiastic and amusing. We were shown round all the rooms and were able to appreciated lots of antique and obviously valuable pieces of furniture. It is permissible to climb up to the top of one of the chateaux and I took quite a few photos looking down at the village and surrounding countryside.surrounding My French just about managed to keep up with the commentator but it was obvious from the laughter and questions asked that this was a visit that was much enjoyed and appreciated. Highly recommended.

“Try the night tour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

This castle within a castle has an amazing history.
If your French is up to it (and even if it isn't) try the night tour it is AMAZING. At the end you can climb the stone steps of the tower with a lantern. Forget health and safety, narrow stone steps in the dark, but it is very atmospheric! The doors shut at 9pm sharp so dont be late!

“A proper castle, beautifully kept.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

French history at its best. A fairytale 13th century castle, in a historic setting, next to the beautiful river Drome. Well worth a visit at €7 for adults and €4.50 for children from 5 - 12 years.

Nice and quiet castle and village, by small river. For calm holidays, refreshing.
