Last May we visited Chateau Guillaume during a special day called Journee du Patrimoine. The Journees du Patrimoine are held twice a year, in May and in September. It lasts two days during which castles, museums, churches and gardens are open to the public free of charge. The program aims to be an incentive to visit and discover the area.
Last May there were 73 sites open to the public in the region, plus 13 concerts offered free of charge in historical buildings.
If you are planning to visit Chateau Guillaume free of charge, you would need to go during one of the journees de patrimoine.
Otherwise, the chateau is open for a small fee from June to September from 2pm to 6pm.

If you want to read more about Chateau Guillaume and see more photos before you visit, I suggest you visit this site where I wrote about our family visit, with loads of photos of Chateau Guillaume.
Another good time to visit Chateau Guillaume would be during the local festivities the last Sunday of July. During the Saint Christophe festivities you can enjoy a little brocante (antique outdoor market), a small parade and a fair.
Also a good time to visit is during the “Fête de château Guillaume” the first Sunday of October and near Christmas time when there is a Christmas market where you can find local produce.
