This Castle is owned by the County it is in and they did a real good job in showing how the big guys lived in formeren days. It is funny, not to big, and Fairly easy to visit. Must see when you are in Auvergne

I've probably seen bigger and in better condition chateaus (in appearance it reminds me more of an English castle than a French 'chateau') but nevertheless Chateau de Murol is well worth the visit. It cost only EUR9 and we easily spent a couple of hours...More

Really impressive castle with wonderful views. The knight show is great, especially if you love horses. Lots of other stuff going on but you need to understand French very well, obviously. Free English guide leaflet given on the door.

Not only is the castle impressive, and of a different style typical of the area, but the drive there is spectacular. You have to get off onto side roads through the Parc des Vocanes in the Auvergne and it is a breathtaking drive, both for...More

A well presented historical attraction. The walk up from the car park isn't terribly arduous and the signposted walk around the castle is educational and enjoyable. There are some great views over the nearby town of Murol from the battlements. This is well worth a...More
