  • Beautiful castle with a unique collection at the time we visited. The Tower a whole climb. Renaissance part was unfortunately in maintenance which the outside was covered with scaffolding. Definitely worth a visit. Village is very quiet lake has a number of restaurants.

  • Certainly what has most interested youth (7/9 years) is up to the medieval Dungeon (naked). 120 markets have said they (beware a narrow and steep stairs without rope and very badly lit between 3 and 4 th floor). Magnificent view from the top finally reached! Attention, areas (medieval flows) little secured although not dangerous. Mission accomplished! If the part renaissance (in the works) is worth a visit for adults, it is quite "messy" full of furniture and tapestries, exceptional chests and a magnificent Tomb (ground floor). Very friendly (to greet), a little too complicated and slow audio guides for young audiences, but the course of games (to improve) is welcome for young people and "tablets" provide opportunities for adults who want to learn more about the history or the furniture. A development satisfactory of this castle which has nothing exceptional in fact compared to others, but that is a good goal to visit if one is nearby. Approach the Castle by the bottom of the village to discover the ramparts. Possibility of workshops for children (on registration?).

  • A nice stage, the castles are beautiful and well restored. The medieval castle is provided with a pretty impressive Dungeon, the view from the top is exceptional (it is really high), no furniture but frankly this isn't the main. Side Castle renaissance, even though the façade and the roof is under construction (interesting indeed to see roofers from the top of the Dungeon), the Interior can be visited and the rooms are furnished and rather interesting. On arrival, if we add the enchanting setting of the river flowing down (with a beautiful old mill which remains the wheel at dawn, unfortunately private) gardens and walks to do, it's a step that's worth. Only downside about castles, the lack of indications regarding its history, is - to encourage renting the audio guide?
