The fortified castle of Sedan is the largest one in Europe with an area of 35 000m2, on 7 levels, 3 of them are above ground and 4 of them underground, and sheltering up to 4000 men. Thanks to its new interactive audio-guide system "Historium" you are now able to enter History and live the great hours of the Princes of Sedan. The audio-guide will take you, at your own pace, to various scenes reconstructed in great detail that bring alive the people in the Middle Ages under the Sedan Princedom.

You will therefore experience various scenes from jumping to the cannon shooting to attending Charlotte de La Marck's wedding. Also we have set up a multimedia room (with an access for the disabled) that will enable you to watch and listen to the Princes of Sedan's lives.

Chateau d'Arlay 39140 Arlay - Tel. +33 (0) 3 84 85 04 22 Fax +33 (0) 3 84 48 17 96

Set alongside one of the oldest vineyards in the Jura, the Chateau d'Arlay, a former convent restored in the 18th century by the Countess of Lauraguais, is the home of early 19th century furniture. The park, built around the ruins of a medieval fortress, is worth seeing for its lovely pathways, romantic copses and birds of prey in the wild. The "Jardin des Jeux", created in 1996, recalls the spirit of the "divertimentos" of the end of the 18th century and presents a harmonious assembly of flowers, fruit and vegetables.

Valence - Tel. +33 (0) 4 75 82 19 26 Fax +33 (0) 4 75 56 01 65 Grignan, Montélimar, Suze-la-Rousse... in close proximity to one another, the most beautiful Chateaux of provençal Drôme. The Chateau de Grignan (12th to 17th centuries) is one of the greatest Renaissance Chateaux in Southeast France. The presence of Madame de Sévigné and the important place which this Chateau holds in her Letters, the power of count François de Castellane Adhémar de Monteil, viceroy of Provence from 1669 to 1714, make it a Mecca for regional history. The Chateau des Adhémar in Montélimar (11th to 16th centuries) is one of the most important examples of medieval architecture in the central Rhône valley, with a 12th century dressing room of exceptional decor. The Chateau de Suze-la-Rousse (12th to 17th centuries) is a medieval fortress with a magnificent arcaded Italian-style courtyard added during the Renaissance period.
Today it is the home of the Université du Vin.
