Fascinating village with chateau
Sep 2019
What an interesting historical village with some really old buildings and narrow cobbled streets. At the top is a lovely ruined chateau, but be prepared for a steep climb up! Worth it though for the buildings and the view and if walking is a problem, there is a way up by car and a car park up there.

As far as the eye can see. Walking path up from a nearby Highway stop or drive up if you wish. Absolutely beautiful!

Wonderful ruin
Aug 2018 • Family
The chateau is a ruin where you can take in a view of the local countryside. I would advise using the chateau as part of a day out exploring the village of Severac. We parked in the village centre walking around the medieval town and wandering up to the chateau. There are optiosn to stop and take a picnic with fine views, we went to the pizza restaurant near the tourist information on our visit.

Free, with great views
Jun 2017 • Friends
It's a long walk to the to, so drive and park, but beware - it's twisty and narrow, so not great if you meet someone coming the other way! You can wander round the ruins for free, and there are huge panoramic views.

Ruined castle with really great views of the surrounding medieval town
Aug 2016 • Friends
The castle itself is quite interesting, but as people have mentioned previously it is ruin and there is not a lot to see in the castle itself. The view of the medieval town from the castle is worth the walk up on it's own especially near sunset.

Charming medieval village
May 2016 • Couples
As previous reviewers have mentioned the château is little more than a ruin and the real attraction is the medieval village just below the château.

We seem very adept at arriving in villages and towns in France during la sieste and consequently nowhere was open when we visited. There were hardly any other visitors around and so the whole village had an empty feel to it. However this did not detract from our pleasure in wandering around a medieval village absorbing the atmosphere of the narrow streets and old buildings. Despite the Tourist Information not being opened it is possible not to miss the main attractions (for one example: Maison de Jeanne) due to various plaques on the street walls showing locations of places of particular interest.

Although the château is a ruin it is still worth a walk round and the panoramic views from the top are impressive.

Not overly impressive..
Jun 2016 • Couples
We didn't get as far as the chateau itself and settled for a wander through the old streets below. These are fascinating and there are plenty of informative plaques situated throughout. Look out for the 'Maison De Jeanne' the oldest existing house in the Aveyron..

More than just a castle?
Aug 2014 • Couples
The chateau is on a high rocky hill overlooking a broad circular valley , nearby is the source of the river Averyon from which the region gets its name . To be fair the chateau is really little more than a ruin , a pale shadow of its former glory , the real attraction is the medieval town that sits quietly below its battlements . The views from the battlements are nice , a 360 degree vista of the rolling countryside opens up around you . In summer , August the locals put on a spectacle which is well worth a visit , do bring a jacket and don't wear shorts , it gets cold .Have a light meal at the Cafe des Ramparts , try the Confit de Canard or the saussise Aligot delicious , very friendly people here happy to greet tourists and remember the French really appreciate it if you make an effort to speak French , you,d be surprised how even a simple "bonjour " breaks the ice and brings an appreciative smile from the local,s don't be shy give it a go . The village below is really amazing , you would think that the three Musketeere,s had just passed by , very well preserved . visit the ancient church and nearby is a good creperie .I f your tired and hot do go and visit the local swimming spot ,the Lac du Cispa , for a dip in lovely warm and clean water{ its tested frequently } , there is a cafe here also that serves light snacks and the locals say the water has therupitic properties . Finally a short drive away , 5 mins is the village of Lapanouse de Severac . A peaceful place with a really well preserved Romanesque church ,a good place to chill while you soak up the tranquillity . The Averyon is full of little gems , take the time to " Take the road less travelled by " and you will be rewarded with places which leave lasting memories of a truly magical region .

Impressive location
Jun 2014 • Couples
It's an impressive chateau despite a lot if it being little more than a ruin. Fantastic views from the site and the old town of Severac below the chateau is worth a stroll. A very good little museum in the old town with well informed and helpful staff.

Part of the chateau is gradually being refurbished and I'd be interested to see how it develops in the next few years.

Delightful
Jul 2014 • Couples
we enjoyed our stay tremendously, our Hosts were welcoming and most obliging , the house was beautifully decorated, the region is rich in history and wonderful scenery.
near by is the breathtaking Millau Viaduct .
The weather was not at its best for the week , but the smiles and company of our Sophie and Hervé made up for this, we loved the garden and our walk through the towns near by .
the market was great with local fruits and produce on Offer .
We will be back .
Thanks again
