A stunning example of a medieval castle in the Burgundian countryside. Worth visiting if you are in the area.

We stumbled over Berze le Chatel by accident, while taking the tourist route to Cluny/Macon (D17). We were captivated by the site and drove up to the castle not realising that we were able to actually pay and walk in. It wasn't very expensive (less than €8 for an adult if I remember correctly) and our 20 year-old and 14... More

This is a magnificent chateau from a distance. We were not able to go in as it was a Monday...closed. But the view of it was spectacular. I believe you can only visit outside anyway, but even a drive by was worth it.

We de this from the road as we drove from Cluny to Frisse. Initially wanted to cycled the distance after hiring bike in Cluny but decided against it as the weather had turned.

We were expecting a visit inside the Chateau, but it wasn't apparent until after we had purchased the tickets that it would be a guided tour around the Chateau. Unfortunately, the tour was in French and we were handed a sheet of information about the Chateau in translated English. It could have done with numbers at the areas that corresponded... More

We went to this chataux and had a guided tour which lasted an hour. It was very interesting with the guide speaking excellent English and she was very knowledgeable. I think it is great that the owners are continuing to look after the building and let people visit.

My best friend and I rented bikes from Cluny and biked here - it was a pretty hilly trek but so worth it. This was the highlight of my trip. We biked the old train path through a mountain and this was waiting on the other side! It was steep to get up to but secluded and absolutely gorgeous! And... More

Crusader Castle built by Hugh de Berze. Fortified and in a prominent position overlooking the valley down to Macon and just east of Cluny. Good guides.

This castle has a spectacular view and is a must in Burgundy. It is rare to find these kind of fortresses preserved in France. We had a very well-informed guide who told us interesting stories about the castle. As this is owned by a family, you are not allowed to go inside. As it is quite isolated on a hill... More

lovely little castle, well worth the €6.50 entrance fee ,nice unspoilt and interesting history. You cant go into the castle itself as it is lived in being relatively modern (being empty for 200 years). But we really enjoyed it, tour takes approx 45/50 mins.
