The Château de Carrouges remained in the ownership of a single family from its construction until 1936. Steeped in history, it features a superb collection of furniture from the Renaissance to the early 19th century and has retained all the charms of a family residence with portraits of the successive generations of the Le Veneur family. Carrouges is remarkable for its long, pale brick walls, steep slate roofs and granite window and door frames. It stands in 10 hectares of carefully tended grounds with gardens, flowering borders and impeccable terraces. Open: > 1st April to 15th June and 1st to 30th September: from 10 a.m. to noon and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. > 16th June to 31st August: from 9.30 a.m. to noon and from 2 p.m. to 6.30 p.m. > 1st October to 31st March: from 10 a.m. to noon and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Last admission 1 hr before closing time.

Just had a fleeting stop here en route from Sees to Ecouche. It was very late in the day on a dull November afternoon, and we were too late to make the best of a tour. We had a look through the beautiful gatehouse and...More

This lovely Chateau is open on a Sunday and is a great place to visit. We were luckily enough to have a very small group so tour in French and English, they also supply a folder in English with lots of info to borrow.

The pictures alone had convinced me that Chateau Carrouges was worth a visit while we were staying in Normandy. I'm so glad we went. The Chateau is beautifully built and easy to find. We were a little early for the afternoon visit (they only open...More

A fairytale castle with a moat, doesn't get much better. Only €5.50 per adult to get in and the tour of the rooms has a guide - only downside was that the guide was in French & we're not too fluent, but problem solved by...More

The image at first glance can easily deceive. The building constructed of red and black bricks, with four circular turrets, is not a castle. It is just gatehouse. But the impression is really good. The real castle is behind this gate. XIV-XVI centuries castle-fortress of...More
