“Fantastic castle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Really great castle, superb lakeside location with fabulous views which the castle itself only enhances. Very interesting and informative too.

The castle is famous for a prisoner here having been written about by Byron and you can see where Byron carved his name in the wall.

There was a super photography display going on in one of the rooms while we were there.

The castle makes its own wine from local grapes and you can buy this in the shop.

“Authentic peace of Swiss history and landmark.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

There is no justice to explain this historical castle without being there, present, in person!
You can get to this site by local bus service that runs by electricity through suspended lines, not far away from Montruex, about a 15 min ride counting short stops, and its also Villeneuve, another little charming town to visit.
The castle is estimated to be over 1000 years old!
Originally it was about 100 building, then connected to each other to become what we have standing today.

This castle has some wonderful history and is user friendly although lots of stairs narrow passages and twists and turns. Well laid out for self guided tour.. Awesome views of the lake and mountains - great destination .
