“History coming to life!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Just the walk up to this mediaeval castle is breathtaking. You can either discover the castle by yourself or take a guided tour. Amazing walk up to the clock tower - a modern but, rare addition!
You can really feel the history in this region. Loved it.

“Well worth the climb”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

The castle overlooks the beautiful village of Najac. The climb to the castle is steep but well worth it. The views of the surrounding countryside are outstanding.

“Gorgeous medieval town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Najac is absolutely beautiful and we and our children loved exploring the castle - which you can just wander around at your leisure climbing the spiral stone stairs to check out the stunning views of the surrounding countryside. There is also a great tree climbing / zip-wire activity centre at the bottom of the hill on the outskirts of Najac which is great fun for kids from about 3/4 years right up to the most adventurous adults / teens with a final zip across the river which is -I think- 200meters long! Don't miss it.

“Spectacular”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Wonderful views over the gorges, but a bit of a climb to get there.
Very friendly guide.
A nice excursion when in the area.
