    • On the banks of the Garonne, 40 minutes from Bordeaux.
      Cadet of Gascony with a meteoric rise, precursor of the musketeers, the ducal of Épernon had this castle built during the reigns of Henri IV and Louis XIII. Sumptuous and military, its palace worthy of kings retains monumental fireplaces, tapestries, painted ceilings... but became a prison for women in the 19th century. An extraordinary destiny.

    A hidden gem worth finding. Tapestries hang in almost every room. They are magnificent & have been well cared for. The walk through the castle is highlighted by English & French descriptions. Children will also enjoy the fairy tale themes.

    A lovely building with history but just a shame it's so empty inside. Such a big space unused and no period furniture either. Shame there's no money to provide that. Staff are very pleasant.

    If you love huge tapestries and massive fireplaces, this is your happy spot. Beautiful.
