Took about 10 mins to drive here from our hotel ... It'd been bugging me since we arrived as I could see it from our balcony! It's interesting in that there's a small commune of houses inside the old castle walls, but otherwise there's nothing...More

It's the ruin of a castle with small dwellings set within the walls. Apart from a very small theatre, there's nothing to see really except these houses which you can walk past if you want to. Nice view from outside the entrance but other than...More

This was an interesting area where people are still occupying medieval houses inside the castle walls. Worth a quick visit if in the area.

Surprisingly smaller then you'd think but very interesting for a wander around and a nosy at the views & the little houses of people still living in the castle. Currently undergoing restoration.

A nice castle like many around, some reconstructions are made there this days so you can not see it all, the lake view is perfect and it worth the short detour from the main road, it is available to rent B&B at the castle itself

This is a small, well maintained castle and only takes about 15 mins to wander around inside. There are three small streets with about 20, well maintained, old stone terraced houses, which are all still occupied. There are also lovely, sweeping views across the lake...More
