  • Or the Palace and gardens are very large but its elegance are worth to give them a visit. On sunny days is a very nice place to surrender to reading.

  • We visited family this madness of the 18th, this time passionate. We were very disappointed because many paintings and furniture had been moved to make room for an exhibition of Contemporary Art. Some works were hiding even whole pieces. Fortunately, there is a little thing to see on the ground FLOOR and in the stairwell. I have nothing against contemporary Art, but is not at all what we had just see (we would have been in the Hotel de Caumont). Fortunately the gardens and exteriors are beautiful and catch up the visit.

  • Great little parc in the middle of the city. It is good for a place to read a book, or just relax and talk with someone. It is very well kept and there is a little museum there too.
  • It was closed when we came but the scenery was stunning. Good enough to visit even for a photo.
  • Great little place to visit. €3.50 for some great art and a nice break from the rain.
  • Very nice park with a beautiful old building, but you can't walk on the grass and seating is not quite optimal.
  • Super pretty! This Pavilion, former mansion, is the perfect place for his small coffee or read. As a photographer I well used it for pictures of weddings because the green space is spotless is behind beautiful old building. Attention however, it is forbidden to walk on the grass...
