Did you know that the Château de Tiregand is haunted and has a curse on it? Nobody dares to go inside. Those who do, never come out. Can you help lift the curse?

This October the Château de Tiregand is putting on another fantastic event, a game of ghosts! But enter the château at your own peril and be brave as you discover this haunted building and its secrets.

I love this château. I visited it years ago to interview the owner, when I was working for the Sud Ouest newspaper, and I fell in love with it. It is grand with more than 40 rooms to visit. It has a vineyard too. The other thing I love about it is that it lays on some very dynamic events throughout the year.
