Courcelles-sous-Moyencourt Castle – The Lama castle
In a small village of some 150 inhabitants close to the city of Amiens you will find an amazingly beautiful castle, the Chateau de Courcelles sous Movencourt. But what’s more, you will find the castle surrounded by unusual animals, unusual for France; LAMAS.
The castle has 100 windows and doors and is surrounded by land and forests. The castle grounds can be visited, including the lama farm (yes, you can touch and pet these docile animals).
During July and August (and all weekends in September), the grounds can be visited without reservation (€8 per adult for guided tour, €4 for afternoon free access without guide). Outside these periods, for group larger than 5 people, you can reserve entry.
There are some 15 lamas on the grounds.
Although you can’t visit the castle itself, you can see the beautiful landscaped gardens, and play with the lamas. Kids love this, so it’s a great thing to do when you are with kids.
