Beaufort Castles: medieval fortifications and Renaissance elegance

In the beautiful countryside of Beaufort, you can visit not one but two castles. Not far from the chateau’s idyllic little lake, an impressive medieval castle towers over the scene. It was built between 1050 and 1650. Following major repairs, the imposing ruins opened to the public as long ago as 1932 and today they are regarded as a historic monument. Just around the corner, you’ll find the Renaissance castle, which dates from the 17th century. The fascinating interiors bring the magic of the past to life. The castle can only be visited on a guided tour, which ends with an opportunity to taste the chateau’s famous Casséro liqueur.

Guided visits:

  • Closed: December 24-26, January 1, second week January until Carnival
