  • Very beautiful, very well maintained, dominating the Loire. The exhibition in the gardens was closed this season, she is highly regarded. The well furnished Interior illustrates several times. Beautiful and enjoyable visit.

  • A castle among the finest in the region and despite this fairly unknown while he has nothing to envy to some of its neighbours, Castle very well maintained and decorated with taste, a park and stables to be missed, in short a visit is better than a long speech.

  • This visit was not enrolled in our program, but as it was early we stopped. Very nice well maintained Castle. The stables are beautiful however we are not fan of contemporary art. In banks of the Loire
