From the Château de la Roche to the Château d’Essalois, passing by those of Bouthéon and Boën, we love castle life in the Loire department!
The most beautiful castles of the department
The castles of the Loire Valley in a few days
Go to meet the castles, fortified castles, manors and vestiges in the Roannais or Forez near Saint-Etienne. For a weekend or during the vacations, some buildings open their doors to the public. Some sites, like the Château de la Roche, even offer original experiences, interactive visits, escapes and night shows to appreciate their history in a different way. Others unfortunately, remain closed to the public, and wait for the Heritage Days to reveal their secrets.
