Chateau de Peirrefonds has it all: it's utterly charming, with a fairy-tale appeal, and it's stunning beautiful with all the detailed work done around the castle. And it is a truly unique and memorable castle.
It's such a special castle that it's even been featured in a television show!
Definitely take the time to tour the castle. There are little nooks and crannies that hold some really interesting sites. The amount of detail present in this castle, especially the architecture (though not the furnishings) surpasses what my expectations were in visiting.
Don't miss the crypt. This was a really interesting element of the castle with some pretty colors and collection of crypt like stones. The chapel was also one of my favorite parts because of the architecture within.
The only disappointment is that much of the reconstructive work is done in plaster rather than original materials and you can see some this clearly in some places (such as the statues within the chapel).
