CAN WE REACH THE CASTLE BY CAR ?
Coming by car to the castle is reserved for authorized persons and people with disabilities. In all other cases, you must park (gratis) nearby the Creperie at the hamlet of Brey-de-Vent and reach the castle in a 10 minutes walk by the path ( length of 280 meters for 28m of uphill gradients).
CAN WE VISIT THE CASTLE WITH A DOG ?
Your dog held in leash can access the inner court. But your dog, regardless of its size, can’t enter inside the castle. We provide you 2 L-size crates with a bowl of water. Your favorite pet will be able to wait for you in a quiet place in the shade in the inner court while you visit the castle.
HOW LONG DOES THE UNACCOMPANIED TOUR LAST ?
Take the time you need. As a rule, 45 minutes to 1 hour are needed to visit the castle.
CAN WE COME WITH A BABY ?
Of course. You can use a stroller to reach the entrance of the castle from the carpark. You will be asked to leave it at the reception. Then, to visit the castle, you will have to carry your child in your arms. For a more pleasant visit, we advise you to use a baby carrier or a baby wrap.
IS THE CASTLE ACCESSIBLE FOR PRM ?
Unfortunatly, our castle can’t be accessible for people in a wheelchair. Indeed, to enter the inner court and to visit the rooms, you must borrow staircases from the Middle-Ages. However, PRM can reach the castle esplanade by car to enjoy the panorama.
ARE THERE A LOT OF STEPS ?
There are few steps to access the castle inner courtyard and between the different rooms. Moreover, there is a wooden spiral staircase with 64 steps that serve all the different rooms of the castle.
CAN WE TAKE PHOTOGRAPHIES DURING THE VISIT ?
You are allowed to take pictures but without a tripod in order not to bother others visitors. If you want, you can share your best pixs on our social networks: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
IS THERE A RESTAURANT NEARBY THE CASTLE ?
At the hamlet of Brey-de-Vent, Nathalie welcomes you for a meal or only a snack at the Crêperie des Allymes.
