They are ruins, no one denies that, but it is a really nice place and it allows you to dream on what it could have been. It's a very romantic place and interesting historical visit.

There was once a beautiful castle on top of a rock, based on a roman settlement. It lasted 250 years or so and then it got destroyed. One way or the other, it never got rebuilt. You need some imagination to understand how it looked....More

We had a bit of fun trying to fine Montaigle castle at first as it wasn't on the sat-nav, but as we were about to give up we stumbled across signs to the castle. Where to park wasn't clearly marked, but we found somewhere to...More

My family stumbled upon this gem while visiting a well known abbey close by. We enjoyed roaming the ruins and learning the history of the chateau better than our original destination. A big plus was they have the literature available in English.
