We wandered around the castle for an hour or so. It’s not the most exciting castle in the world but it’s quite picturesque in a rustic way and passed the time nicely.

We visited on a Monday so could not do an official tour but we could wander through the castle! Turrets, towers, high walk ways— very fun! Bonus: an amazing restaurant right outside with a three course lunch and wine where we ate outside under a large shade tree. I would definitely go back!

Very lovely renovated medieval castle in the heart of the little village of Blandy. No original furniture since this castle was supposed to be destroyed and saved from destruction later in this century. This was an absolute good initiative from the local state. It is beautiful and you can feel the age and the history. We had a lot of fun with our two princesses aged of 2 and 4, visiting this castle. The view from the top of the towers is amazing really!

A good hour or 2 walking round an open, restored castle. A simple exhibit starts you off with an idea of the history/development of the castle. There's not loads to read, &
plenty of walking & climbing (all good for younger kids).
The previously downloaded audio guide (children's version) was good enough, though not always easy to tell where to look/stand.
Glad we didn't take them to Vaux Le Vicompte!

A restored castle in a peaceful village. We enjoyed walking around and admiring the castle. As others have mentioned, it is easy to imagine yourself transported back in time when here.

This was my first visit to Blandy, but I hope not my last. I took the chateau bus from the station in Verneuil l'Etang and, after the stop at Vaux le Vicomte, I was the only one left on the bus, and once at the chateau, felt like I had a wholly personal experience, completely alone in this medieval-era marvel. Truthfully, there was a handful of other visitors, but our paths never intersected, so I was able to pretend I was a 12th century inhabitant of Blandy. There are stunning views of the region from the top of the "donjon" and the audio guide added much understanding to the history and drama of the chateau/fortress. The woman at the welcome desk was charming and complimented me on my (very rusty) French, which made me feel special. I loved everything about my visit and the lovely town of Blandy that surrounds the castle. I'm putting it down as a must-visit.

Château de Blandy-les-Tours is a fortified castle, which was built before the Hundred Years War. It is a medieval castle. Typically built. The entrance is 7 Euros. When you visit the castle, they give you all the information you need in English too. I liked it. Especially the village around the castle is very nice. You can walk at the streets and if the weather is nice, it is a very peaceful and quiet atmosphere. I recommend that.

It is well restored castle in the middle of fields. The tour is mainly walk along the ramparts and inside one tower, which gives the opportunity to see the view around (it takes about 1h of not-in-a-hurry walking). What is different about this castle, is that it is actually the castle from Middle Ages - which is nice 'novelty' along the classic 18th/19th century chateaux everywhere around.
