Lots of steps. Interesting rooms on all floors. Fantastic views all around from the roof. Really unusual exhibition of Cabinets of Curiosities. Interesting books in the shop. Well worth a visit.

We were on our way back from Avignon to Arles and took a more scenic (TomTom!) return trip and came across this absolute delight. How wonderful to see a complete castle instead of ruins. The whole of the castle is available for viewing and the...More

This chateau looks old and rundown from the outside. However, it is worth the few Euros to go inside and really tour this great Chateau. The courtyards are high and open, the rooms in each levels are interesting, some with wall paintings. Finally, the rooftop,...More

Well preserved chateau and former prison by the river. Beautiful situation with great rooftop views. Some lovely stonework and fireplaces. Lots of stairs and levels.

We explored the chateau (castle) during a day trip to Tarascon from Avignon. The visit is really worth the effort. You can explore all 4 levels and the roof, by ascending stone spiral staircases. The building itself is in very good repair, and the architecture...More
