    This castle on a human scale is very neat and very aesthetic. It is fully furnished and entirely sound visit to enjoy the details of the rooms and this without additional charge and without the disadvantages of the hearing aids. The adjoining Museum is also must see, I saw nothing like the other castles in this area, collect them are overcrowded and very well presented. They are as much for children as for adults very educational and entertaining. Finally, the walk in the Woods is also very nice and informative, offering on the nature and the very interesting views Castle. The host is nice, a must see so!

    Beautiful little castle to visit, Riddle for kids friendly, walk in the nature, a moment of relaxation compared to the big castles, there's a lot of hunting. We appreciate the calm and simplicity, for a small budget.

    The Castle and its surroundings are very pleasant to visit, the rooms of the House are restored as at the time and explanations of the furniture are clear. In addition, history of the kennel and hunting of Montpoupon is extremely well underlined by exhibitions and vintage photos.

    It's like the Tardis - way more to do and see than you can imagine from the outside. The Hunting Museum is outstanding, whatever you think of the practice.

    This chateau and its interesting collection and museum was so unexpected. I was just dropping by on my way to Chaumont, and was so pleasantly surprised that I stayed there a lot longer, and it become one of the highlights of my tour of the Loire. The rooms are so interesting, with some great pieces and stories. Loved the collection of Hermes scarfs! And the museum was really interesting! Not that I approve of hunting, but I loved learning about the pomp and ceremony of it - not something I typically associate with the French. Very, very good.

    Furnished as it was in 1971. Lovely to wander about. English description for everything.
