This was an interesting area where people are still occupying medieval houses inside the castle walls. Worth a quick visit if in the area.

Surprisingly smaller then you'd think but very interesting for a wander around and a nosy at the views & the little houses of people still living in the castle. Currently undergoing restoration.

A nice castle like many around, some reconstructions are made there this days so you can not see it all, the lake view is perfect and it worth the short detour from the main road, it is available to rent B&B at the castle itself
