Visited here with my sister and we both thought the place was amazing. There are a lot of stairs to climb but it's worth it. What we liked about the tour was that there was a lot of things we could actually touch as it...More

Having read some reports by English people who recently visited this Castle I prepared for the worst. The Castle tour at 2pm was delivered in French (it is in France) with English hand-outs if required. The tour guide spoke very clear French (if you cant...More

Went here last week (01 Sep) It was a delight. The tour is in French but there are guides in English. The Chateau has a lot of history and is very beautiful. Of the Chateau in the surrounding area, I think this is the best....More

My wife and I travelled to Jumillhac to visit the Chateau. On arrival we found the entrance locked with a note pinned to the gate saying the Chateau didn't open until 11.00 o'clock, despite a more official notice saying it opened at 10.00. Consequently we...More

A nightime visit to Chateau de Jumilhac is to be recommended. The guides were dressed in period costume and delivered a detailed history of the venue with humour and professionalism. Unfortunately we had paid extra to eat in one of the large dining halls after...More

Lovely chateau with a guided tour. The only problem is the tour is in French only. All other languages have to read from a printed booklet. It was obvious there were things we were missing out on. Your French will need to be excellent to...More
