    It always as pleasant to stroll through this wonderful field with cool and interesting, and this guides after multiple visits for 15 years. I have him discover my Entourage during stays in the Vexin. It's getting better. Only missing a small tea room and/or store larger Bookstore.

    I rarely saw an area also well restored, all trees are cut to the same height, the buildings are beautiful and well organized parking. It can be visited for free, and yet a contribution would be quite logical given the work done! The walk through the garden is very nice and accessible, except maybe the meadow in front of the Castle. Why not to better promote this heritage? We got there by chance after visiting the other castles in the area and s had n choose what a this would be it without hesitation!

    We were lucky to arrive just in time where began a tour but nevertheless free. The gardens with their ponds and canals are beautiful. The furnished Castle is very nice also. The explanations given by our guide was a real plus. Thanks to Anne for this lovely tour despite a gloomy weather.
