Château de Grand-Rullecourt

Grand-Rullecourt, France

Château de Grand-Rullecourt was built in 1746 by Antoine-Constant de Hamel, next to the previous castle. After the French Revolution, the chateau was sold as a national asset, (Antoine's son having died on the scaffold). His grandson bought it back but couldn't afford to keep it. It later belonged to Captain Wallerand de Hauteclocque, who was killed during World War I. After the war, the property was sold in parts. Today the castle host a B&B.

Stayed for 3 nights. Beautiful Chateau and home to Chantelle and her lovely family. Very peaceful. Spacious charmilg rooms. We were lucky enough to have a guided tour. So much history, lovely antiques and the family manage to maintain a passion for the business they run A wonderful place to stay.

Great location, friendly hosts. Don't firget this is a B&B, not a hotel.

Wow, not many B&B offer this Grand Chateau setting, operated by a princess and a Viscount. The room was tastefully furnished in period style. Gracious grounds and a garden with tracts of lawn and fruit trees. Simply unforgettable.

Beautiful place to stay run by a lovely woman. Breakfast was good enough and the rooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable.

Hohenwerfen Castle

Hohenwerfen Castle stands high above the Austrian town of Werfen in the Salzach valley. The castle is surrounded by the Berchtesgaden Alps and the adjacent Tennengebirge mountain range. The fortification is a 'sister' of Hohensalzburg Castle both dated from the 11th century.

The former fortification was built between 1075 and 1078 during the Imperial Investiture Controversy by the order of Archbishop Gebhard of Salzburg as a strategic bulwark. Gebhard, an ally of Pope Gregory VII and the anti-king Rudolf of Rheinfelden, had three major castles extended to secure the Salzburg archbishopric against the forces of King Henry IV: Hohenwerfen, Hohensalzburg and Petersberg Castle at Friesach in Carinthia.
