This is a very fine castle with all the traditional accoutrements; towers, battlement, a moat and three lines of curtain walls. It is very well preserved.

The castle occupies a loop in the River Nancon, which serves as a moet. Five towers stud the outer curtain wall, which has musket loops as well as arrow slits, and a gun platform for cannon. The tour Melusine is the most splendid of these towers with walls 3.5 meters thick.

The castle gives visitors a great feeling of the Middle Ages, in a setting of considerable beauty.
