I have wanted to visit Montaigne’s tower for years and this visit met all expectations. The site is suitably minimal, and with a guide such as Fliss, all the gaps were filled. Fliss had a breadth of knowledge that made the visit a very rich experience indeed. That the tour was in English was a major factor in the success of our visit.
One thing I would like to see is an English language version of the very attractive French translations of all the aphorisms that Montaigne had on the ceiling of his library.
I would recommend contacting the Chateau staff by phone or email. The website does not allow you to book online. Brilliant visit. Would recommend 100%. Thanks, Fliss!

The tower is right by the chateau, which is worth a visit. But tower and Montaigne himself were more interesting for us. The French group were with knew him well. What a well educated country!

Original 16th-century tower, exclusively built for Montaigne. Most of his writings and thinkings created here in his small, closed study. When we visited, the "English" guide was friendly but horrible because of his too strong French accent. We've lost most of his talk. But the stone tower itself, its rooms, tiny chapel and forests around the tower tell many about Montaigne's life. As most of medieval castles, the stair is very steep and narrow.

No cafe, no any nice amenities. The closest cafes are few miles away. Better to bring something to drink and snacks. Owner of this chateau's original wines, such as "Les Essais", and some souvenirs are available at the gift shop. 40 minutes by taxi from the Libourne station. Taxi reservation is necessary before your arrival at the station.

The tower where French statesman and philosopher Michel de Montaigne wrote his famous Essais is quite interesting. Unfortunately I can only qualify the guided tour as poor as the young lady guide tried to get into the Guinness Book of Record for speaking as rapidly as she could. Although the group consisted mainly of foreigners she refused to give at least a summary in English, a language which she mastered satisfactorily.

Sadly, this lack of consideration fur the customer is not rare in France.

We had great expectations but the place was in bad shape and the library did not have any books....The great philosopher and authordid not receive the appreciation he deserved...and the wine produced there ....not worth trying

After a stop at the Monclaret Gallo Roman archeological Site we drove the short distance to visit Montaigne’s tower and the Chateau. We had a fabulous tour (thank you, Laura), and spent nearly 1.5 hours on the grounds. The tower is all about Montaigne, and the stories and artifacts are so interesting. There you are in THE room where we wrote Les Essais!!!!!The original Chateau was lost to a fire but the reconstructed Chateau is elegant and inviting and the only way you can enter it is on the tour as it is privately owned. Furnished with objects old and new and with family photos the Chateau is full of personality! Don’t miss the wine tasting at the end...we were keen on the Rosé!

I had never heard of Michel de Montaigne until my wife suggested we visited the ancestral seat. The tour of the "tour" was extremely interesting although without the well informed guide, it might have been less so. I guess the visit lasted an hour or so but coupled with a stroll through the gardens, it was time we were happy to spend and I at least, came away much better informed than I had been about some bits of 16th century French history. (My wife knew most of it already but she enjoyed being able to put it all into a physical context).
Doubt if it would be feasible to visit this without your own transport although bikes would be fine. GPS/satnav is a big help too as signs are a bit limited.

A good tour but wanting more information on Montaigne himself, overall a reasonable visit worth the two hour drive to get there.

Worth a quick visit, staff were helpful and the grounds are well-kept and good to walk round. Good views. Bit remote though, so swings and roundabouts
