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.

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..

We stayed at the campsite in the village below the 13th Century Chateau with wonderful views of the French countryside. We were there early season, April, and it was pleasantly quiet. We wandered the chateau and took loads of pictures. We were only going to...More
