Castle · Tourist Spot
Admire the diverse architecture and great views over Mont Rome at Chateau de Couches, a castle that once served as the residence of Margaret of Burgundy. Opt for a full tour and view the dungeon and underground galleries from the 12th century, the tower and chapel from the 15th century, and the troubadour-style residence from the 15th century. Relax in the small but lush topiary garden, where you can gaze at the house, or view the artifacts in the chapel, including furniture, tapestries, and stained-glass windows. Some tours are offered in English but can still be difficult to understand, so consider reading up on the attraction beforehand.

  • Child friendly visit... Very informative!
  • The Castle is easily accessible, parking In the immediate Vicinity. The Interiors of the medieval Castle Can only be visited with a Guided tour.

The Outdoor Facilities are spacious and enormous. The well-kept palace Park Invites you To Stroll. A worthwhile destination for the whole Family.
