These days the Château de Montfort is closed to the public.
The castle has an interesting history. It was built in the XI century but razed to the ground by Simon de Montfort in 1214. The castle was later rebuilt but was destroyed another three times: during the Hundred Years' War and then again on the instructions of Henri IV.
Much of the current configuration looks like XVII or XVIII century to me. It would have been great to get inside the walls but alias we were limited to a walk around the perimeter - or were we?
