Castelmoron-d'Albret Things to Do

  • The village church

    The church isn't in use anymore. Only for very few occasions will the door open now. One of the villagers told me that the mayor let the building fall into ruins because he had other interests. It sounded like this person was disappointed. It was kind of strange to see this badly maintained church since the rest of the village is kept nice and neat...

  • The village washing building

    Now just a nice feature and especially so for its location just below the village, but a highly useful building in the old days. It makes for very picturesque pictures

  • Defense walls

    When you walk under the entrance gate 'at the back' of the village, you'll find this view. Now the word 'defense' makes much more sense

Castelmoron-d'Albret Restaurants

  • dog in kitchen

    I was going to eat at this restaurant, but as I was sat at the bar, the door to the kitchen swung open and there was a dog there licking all the cooking pots. Needless to say I made a hasty retreat. Didn't eat there, so can't say

  • Check Your Bill

    The restaurant is combined with a bar/brocante, so the decor is shabby and full of loads of overpriced junk for sale. The opening times seem to vary with when it is convenient with the people that work there.The food is mediocre and overpriced for the quality. One important word of advice is to watch your bill. I have eaten there twice and both...

Castelmoron-d'Albret Warnings and Dangers

    Some very small streets

    by Mique Updated Dec 18, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you decide to visit Castelmoron d´Albret best leave your car parked on the small parking that you´ll find alongside the road to Caumont. It doesn´t much look like a parking but it has a small sign ´parking for visitors´ attached to the tree in the middle... Anyway, do park there or anywhere alongside this road. Although you can go up with your car, it isn´t like there is a lot of parking space there. And the streets can be rather smallish. Besides, walking along the whole village on foot will put around a mile on your shoe soles...

Castelmoron-d'Albret Off The Beaten Path

  • Along the little river

    If you've decided to walk under the gate and you don't feel like doubling back on your paces there is an alternative route. Continue to follow the path under the village walls until you come up at the little stream. Turn left here at the footpath. This one will take you back to the road just outside Castelmoron.

  • Inside the cells

    In both cells there were these kind of toilets. Though this one was the more elaborated one.

  • The jail cellars

    Underneath theMarie there are also 2 vaulted cellars that were used as jails. Very damp places and even though it was very clear outside we needed light here. It must have been aweful in the days it was used as jail. In the cells you can also see the holes that were the toilets. I was glad i could walk out again fairly quickly

    The old bailiffs�� palace

    Favorite thing: There is no tourist information office in Castelmoron. But head for the Mairie. There they'll give you a village walk that you can do. I'm not sure they'll have one in english but i wouldn't be surprised.

    The Mairie is next to the old pottery that is housed in the old bailiffs' palais. Although that is a big word for a rather small place. Just walk in and they´ll help you out.
