The first mention of the Château de Saint-Alban dates back to 1188. It was besieged several times during the Hundred Years' War. The three existing towers were added in the 15th century. Since 1824 the castle has been used as psychiatric center.

Très bon accueil avec une coupe de champagne malgré notre arrivé tardive à 21h30 . Propriétaire très gentil et serviable. Très belle endroit au calme. Piscine super dans un beau jardin. Il mérite amplement cesTrois Étoiles et même limite un 4 étoiles car en comparaison avec d'autres 3 étoiles il est bien au dessus. Seul petit bémol pour moi c'est la déco ancienne, mais c'est le style château (mon mari lui a adoré cette déco...)

קבוצה של 13 איש מצרפת, איטליה וישראל. היינו במלון לילה אחד ב 7 ביוני 2018. מלון ברמה גבוהה מאוד עם מסעדה מצוינת. המבנה והחדרים בעיצוב גותי עם בריכה וגן נפלאים מסביב. הבעלים כריסטיאן ואשתו נותנים הרגשה ביתית. המלון לא זול, אבל זאת חוויה מיוחדת. שכחנו כמה פריטים במלון והבעלים דאגו לשלוח לנו את זה הביתה! כל הכבוד. ממליץ בחום.

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
