We had a lovely time at this Chateau. We were given a guide to carry around and the information was very interesting. The views from the building were beautiful.

This chateau has been extensively restored and the extent of the restoration is itself of interest. There was a medieval festival taking place when we visited and parking was difficult. There is a car park, but it was full as were most of the surrounding...More

At only 5 Euros this chateau is well worth visiting. Its sad story of how many times it has been destroyed and the work that has been done to restore it is amazing and well worth supporting. There is a good description of the rooms...More

Attractive little chateau which was restored (at least according to the signs) largely with private money - of course, it's really the view you want - as once you've seen one pile of rocks...

Atmosphere was romantic and the surrounding area is very quiet. View from chateau is wonderwull, you can view the original roof of houses and typical Provencal countryside.

The person responsible for opening this chateau to the public couldn't be bothered to turn up for work leaving 8 tourists standing outside. I have visited this chateau before and was disappointed not to be able to show it to my guest.

This Castle is very impressive from afar. Unfortunately, the building suffered from a fire during WWII and was never properly restored afterward. It makes a nice stop if you visit the Mont Ventoux, but it isn't worth a special trip.

We came across this almost by chance having seen the Chateau symbol on the map as we drove through on the main road. Initially the signs weren't good, rough car park up a rough track. We were in two minds whether to continue but having...More
