Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Went with friends, if you have problem walking this is not the place for you.
Also several stairs inside the house.
Very interesting place you will have a taste of living in...olden days...and appreciate a modern kitchen!!!!
Unusual house with good view.
AVOID the torture chamber, nothing water down in there especially with children, they will have nightmares!
Small gift shop with local stuff in it.

IF you speak french you will miss less info.

A Good fun look at how people might have lived over the centuries. Set in the rock face, it's an interesting fort. I much preferred the Chateau Commarque near by, but this fort was also very interesting none the less. Probably a lot better for kids too.

As for the guy who gave this a terrible rating as they would not let him in at 7pm.... Come on, who arrives at a sight at 7pm?? You can't call them terrible because they wanted to go home and you did not leave in good time. There is a sign in English making it clear that last admission is 6.15pm. Perhaps they added this after seeing your review?

loved this castle so unusual, took a 3 year old and a 6 year old around it , a few steps up form the car park and more inside so not suitable for a pram and beware of the robotic knight this scared my 3 year old but fascinating way to spend an hour or two with young children

This place is amazing. First you have to get up the hill, we went via the dirt pathway other than the stairs, after making payment, if I remember correctly 7euros each! it was like stepping back in time, the rooms of the Chateau are all set up the kitchen with food on the table and of course the old kitchen implements, pots etc. bedroom with clothes of that day hanging on the outside of cupboard doors, the artefacts room showing all kinds of ancient tools, spears etc. it showed how the people of those days lived. All the old furniture throughout the house was beautiful. What amazed us was how did they ever get things into this house back then as it it a long way off the ground, manpower I guess. Their are many stairs that are narrow and lots of them, so it is not for everyone. This was one of the best sites we visited during our trip to France. High recommended.

This area is such an interesting area and The Maison Forte de Reignac is well worth a visit. It's a stunning sight, built into the rock and what a surprise inside. So much to see and so well put together. This fortress was where the Lord of the stronghold lived. It was in private hands until very recently when it was sold to the city of Bordeaux and preserved so visitors could see what life was like.

Allow a couple of hours for this visit and really take your time to visit each room and read about what the room was used for.

It would be difficult for anybody with a disability to access this place.
