A nice castle in the middle of the town. Not loads to do for English speaking children- they enjoyed climbing to the top but quite a lot of money just for that. In an out in less than an hour

It's small but well preserved medieval castle. Has a deep history of enduring attacks from the vikings, Spanish, English and Dutch. The submarine and mermaid exhibit on the top floors are perfect for young kids and parents alike:)

The day we visited was open free to the public with late closing. How lucky we were. Built at the end of the 12th century it is
well preserved and a fine example of medieval architecture. It was used as a residence and in time of wars as a prison. It is now a museum. On top of the tower there is a great panoramic view of the area. Well worth a visit

This is quite a sight. There are not many castles from that far back that are in such good shape. The small collection of objects on display is interesting, and Norimoutier itself is a lovely island with salt marches and a bird sanctuary. Avoid July and August. Best time is June or September.

Worth popping in to, doesn't take very long to look round but the exhibits are nice and constantly changing so you could visit regularly. View from the top is excellent. Recommend visiting on market day and taking a look round the nature reserve whilse your there.

We planned just to walk round the outside of the castle, but our son (aged 5) was desperate to explore inside, and we were pleased we did. It was very reasonable to get in, especially since our children, being under 6, were both free. They loved scrambling up onto the canons, exploring the staircases and turrets of the castle and even playing in the miniature ball pit.

I was keen to read about the fascinating history of the castle, but my family are impatient in museums, so I was hurried on. If you DID have time to read all the information and take in all the exhibits, you could spend several hours here.

Visited Noirmoutier on market day and went to Château while there. Worth going just for the view from the top, but the kids loved walking around and we all found interesting especially the battle scenes in paintings on display. Not expensive

A nice castle to visit, with great views and a lot more information on local history than one would expect from a local castle. Important moments in history during Dutch invasions and after the French revolution were very well explained and visualised.

Well worth a visit

This is a nice way to spend an hour if you’re visiting the area. You will need to understand a little French to appreciate the exhibits, but if not you can just enjoy the view from the roof!
