We have visited this attraction many times over the ten years that we have lived here, with family and friends. Over that period, it has been possible to see renovations that have taken place. The views from the parapets and terraces are stunning. The interior tableau's and decoration are very good. You need to check opening times out of Season.... More

You have to be prepared for a lot of stairs and uneven cobbles when visiting this place so it wouldn't be suitable for wheelchairs or push chairs. I visited with my mother who did find it a bit of a struggle but she and I both agreed it was an excellent place to visit. The views from the different terraces... More

This chateau is a spectacular looking place from the outside. Inside it is still impressive but the audio guide and signage about where to move to next within the chateau need some help. In my opinion the audio guide is too long on facts and quite dry. I would have liked some more life to it. After a while my... More

We spent two hours here, fascinated by the building, the rooms and the history. We bought a combined pass for Biron and the Abbey of Cadouin which was good value at 11.60 euro. The English paper explanations are given out sparingly and we were only permitted one between two. However, the English audio guide (no headphones) were a better option... More

Standing up on a hill, the chateau can be seen from miles away on a clear day. The self-guided tour started at the chapel and went on to the different towers, rooms and courtyard. Because it was built and add-on between 12th and 18th century, and there was a change of this place from a fort to a residential chateau,... More

Beautiful castle, great art exhibition but not a lot to keep 3 kids interested. Stairs are lethal so keep your eyes peeled! Was also 35 degrees when we visited so a little warm for climbing!

The chateau looks impressive from the outside and there is no problem parking nearby on the road or in the car parks. At the ticket desk they have a broken card payment machine which I guess is a permanent feature so you need to pay in cash. If you're English then I strongly suggest that you get an audio-guide, we... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. The card payment machine was broken one day but it's working again. As you said, we recommand you to take the audioguide to get information in your own language. We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the modern "art" exhibition. More

Enjoyable visit - there is an English guidebook version available on entry (you return it when you leave) and as I speak French we also tagged onto one of the guided visits. It is a very interesting place - medieval and 16th Century parts very easy to distinguish in architecture and some very pretty views of the surrounding area. It... More
