  • We already went several times to the Castle visit is always nice, the Christmas in the courtyard of the Castle market is great, and more teaching days are organized for children from schools and they are greeted by the Princess

  • Excellent framework. Very good presentation (explanations) for the visit. The pedestrian circuit that can be done at the back of the castle is also interesting.

  • A truly magnificent experience! Family members are still present at the 'château' and the lovely grandmother was excited to tell the history of her ancestors! The theatre is amazing to see, almost 150 years of history to be seen first hand. The staff is very friendly, helpful and kind, definitely worth €9!
  • Try to visite it by night. Looks pretty nice :)
  • We had a fabulous experience exploring the history at Le Château.
  • Very nice Castle. Fantastic and super friendly staff. If you're lucky, you might meet some members of the royal family. And the interactive tour (iPad) is original but done very well. We also loved the theatre!
