    • Along the Bunting, step back in time for a walk of about 1 hour. This walk will take you back to the time of prehistoric men on the privileged area of ​​La Roche Courbon, in the middle of a wild and unspoiled nature. You will discover reconstituted camps of Homo Erectus (Héhé camp), Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens (Osapi camp, Ramého camp). Imagine making a fire with Neanderthals to meet in the caves!

      At each camp, as well as in the caves, informative panels present the evolution of prehistoric men in our territory, from the arrival of Homo Erectus until the beginning of the Iron Age. Information concerning botany is also visible.

      Ti’Silex offers puzzles during the course. A playbook helps children follow him in his adventures throughout the ride. We also offer a printed guide with additional information to complete your visit.


      Live a moment out of time!

      Warning: bring shoes suitable for walking (hiking type path)

    I think this castle is so underrated and it‘s a pity! The surroundings are so beautiful and well-looked after. Also, I found the guided tour to be extremely interesting and informative. The inside of the castle is just wow and so well preserved, but you are not allowed to take photos. If you‘re interested in the prehistoric civilizations, don’t miss the caves (it would be a good idea to have a mosquito repellent with you)! Also, there is a free big parking right in front of the castle.
