Perched on a rocky outcrop against the Massif des Bauges, this spectacular fortress overlooks the Combe de la Savoie. The breath-taking view from the top of the ramparts stretches from Mont Blanc to Vercours.
You are welcome to visit the simple garden.
The château once belonged to the powerful Barons de Miolans, the irrefutable lords and masters of the surrounding area.
Within its high walls was one of the most feared prisons in the Etats de Savoie. It's not hard to imagine the plaintive cries of the prisoners coming from these spooky gaols, the most famous prisoner being the Marquis de Sade, as well as the clanking of chains or the squeaking of heavy doors.
Today, the château is open the public; this venerable stone building contains a charming Medieval-inspired garden. The different terraces overlooking the garden are as much open passageways over a vast horizon of Alpine peaks. From the snow-covered ridges of Mont Blanc to the distant foothills of Vercours, passing through the Dent de l'Arclusaz or the Chaîne de la Lauzière, they provide the château with a spectacular mountainous backdrop.
