In the area
There is much to do and discover within a few kilometers in the immediate vicinity of the castle. Below you will find some ideas, but there is much more to see and experience.
You can do it in Lapalisse, the closest town, you can visit the imposing castle of Lapalisse bezoeken. This castle has been owned by the same family for more than six centuries, now De Chabannes. By appointment you can tour some parts of the castle and the adjacent family church. The gardens are freely accessible. Every year the spectacular ‘Son & Lumière’ takes place here in summer, a wonderful light and sound spectacle about historical events around the castle, its owners, Lapalisse and Burgundy.
Do you enjoy hiking? We have plotted several short and long walks for you, directly from the castle. You will pass the old water mill, Moulin de Bussolles (with a waterfall). In the old days this mill was part of the Château de Bussolles estate, just like the Chapelle de Bussolles, the old chapel of Bussolles, a medieval church that belonged to the owners of the castle. In clear weather you can see the Puy de Dôme in the distance.
