Don't waste your 36euro on the Place de Duche. The older gentleman who took our money spoke only french to us, although understood our English questions, then very quickly, while continuing to speak in a torrent of french, took us up a flight of stairs...More

Being the summer residence of the Duche, the castle is filled with the family history, and there are many portraits of the family including artefacts, there are interesting tidbits on various family members. The tour lasted about 20 minutes. The tour guide we had made...More

If in town the castle is a must see. The Guide didn't speak English, but provided me will English notes. The history behind the castle was interesting and put things in context. Worth a visit although a bit expensive

At a cost of 18 euro this is not worth it especially if you do not speak French, notes are provided in English but are pretty basic. The views from the top of the tower are brilliant. You only get to see 5 rooms and...More
