Château de Volhac

Owl ! A visit to the Château de Volhac
For more than a thousand years, the castle has proudly erected its watchtowers and machicolations on the banks of the Loire... and... to ignite the imagination of young and old... the visit to the underground.
For more than a thousand years, the castle – or fortified house – of Volhac has proudly erected its watchtowers and machicolations on the banks of the Loire. A former stronghold intended to guard the passage of the river, its eventful destiny reflects the great times in the history of Velay.
Transformed during the Renaissance into a cheerful resort, its architecture retains the defensive and residential character of the noble houses of Velay. Its location in the heart of a preserved natural site and its English-style park laid out in the 1990th century make it a residence of incomparable charm. Restored in the XNUMXs after a long period of neglect, the Château de Volhac has made a new start by opening up to cultural and educational activities.
