The chateau has a very interesting history as with a number of different uses, including as a women’s prison. Very little furniture or other artifacts, but fascinating to tour through, nevertheless.

Not much inside as with many French chateaux but it was a pleasant visit and not very expensive - i think €6 per adult.

Parked the car, walked through the walled gate and up the hill to this Chateau. Free on the Saturday and an Art exhibition in place too. Central staircase with rooms left and right. The fireplaces are just beyond imagination and some unfinished. The size and...More

The Chateau itself is an imposing building in the lovely town of Cadillac. The displays inside are what makes a visit so worthwhile. Each room has a magnificent fireplace and the walls are the showcase for a remarkable display of tapestries. Try to gain access...More

We did a river cruise that stopped in Cadillac. It is a very grand chateau with - at least in July - a very well done opera costume display in it.

This Chateau is large and imposing, and doesn't have the restoration which makes these places interesting, in my opinion. The areas which housed the women prisoners were very sobering and even a little spooky. I can read some French but not enough to understand all...More
