“Beautifully restored”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

We arrived early to avoid crowds, so easily plenty of parking. The chateau overlooks the small town of Lourmarin, which was one of my favourites on our tour. Having the chateau open for viewing made this the perfect location to visit. It had the most amazing staircase winding up the many floors, hard to believe how they engineered it way back then. They did have the instructions on how it was done, which my partner found interesting reading. Worth the 6 euros for entry. We went back to Lourmarin several times for dinner and to stroll around the quaint streets, and the chateau and its chapel are beautifully lit up at night.

“Interesting Historical Monument”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

The Chateau is in a classic and quaint village that caters well for the tourists.

The Chateau is an imposing structure that sits on a hillside slightly away from the village. It is open on a limited basis during the day and obviously holds functions from time to time.

It has a "newer" Renaissance wing that contains some interesting and good local artists wares on display and for sale.

In the older part of the Chateau it contains classic furnishings well presented in old rooms to give some feel of the original times. The artifacts are high quality and not overcrowded.

“An interesting chateau”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

This is a very interesting chateau and now used for concerts and art exhibitions. We took the guided tour and saw the mediaeval part and the furnished Renaissance wing containing a rich art collection.It costs 6 Euros 50c for an adult, and children over 10 years 2 Euros 70. The views from the castle are lovely of the surrounding olive grove and hills.

“PURE HISTORY”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

A true meeting with French history, a history so well known and yet unknown as it should. A landscape emerged from the novels of Alexandre Dumas, landscape required to be researched and known. Deserves ...even more....
