Went for an afternoon in July and enjoyed a fabulous visit. Unpretentious location but worth every Euro.

This is a very well kept piece of French history and there are lots of artefacts to look at. Climb to the top of the tower for amazing views. The gardens are very well kept and laid out as they were for hundreds of years.

What a fabulous find. The Donjon and museum together with the forge are a great afternoon's entertainment. Definitely worth a detour. Also a terrific medieval garden.

We had a fabulous lunch at the auberge du donjon restaurant opposite and spent an hour or so exploring the Donjon. The gardens and the tower were fascinating. Kids enjoyed it as much as we did, especially climbing the tower and looking out from the...More
