Castles (or parts thereof) near Creuse

Thanks Dave - I love going down to old watermill by the river at Malval on a sunny afternoon, I haven't seen the ruins but the ancient church is also worth a visit. Can I add a vote for the Chateau de Sarzay (36) - not strictly in Creuse but well worth a visit - especially with children who love exploring the towers. Privately owned and an interesting history.

I've split off this to a new topic to make it clearer where stuff is, plus I wanted to add a few more :)

The Château d'Ars (36) just north of La Châtre is open to the public in the summer season (and for other events during the year) as an art gallery and exposition space and visits can be free.

Le Château de Val (15) a few km north of Bort les Orgues (19) is open the the public and is on the edge of a long lake. The town is a bit odd and is below a large dam. There are some excellent cliffs nearby where you can walk long the top to a selection of viewpoints. It's a nice day out (although I haven't been inside the castle myself so can't comment on that).
