The course is headed, and not knowing very well the French driving (a lady very passionate) tried to make an effort to make us understand the explanation. For me the path in the castle was very interesting and also children present in the Group were entertained by trivia which told the Guide recommended!!show original

You have to wait and go round with the next tour guide, can't wander on your own, but it's well worth it. The castle was briefly owned by an eccentric collector in early 1900s, then donated to the Academie Florimontaine (who still own it and probably haven't changed anything much), so it's full of his vast collections of old weapons, eastern curiosities, ceramics, lace, huge Flemish tapestries, some amazing bronze friezes, and... Napoleon's death mask! An Academie guide did our tour, which focusses on the collections; very enthusiastic; it's in French, but a printed English summary for each room is provided. The castle itself is lovely and more coherently developed than the Annecy chateau-museum. You get to see five rooms plus the keep tower. Amazing 14C stone spiral staircase in Nun's Tower with steps and central rail made from single slabs.
Only possible to view with guide, wich was an hour wait. Insane!
