  • We had a great visit. After touring the gardens and the "free rooms" we took the excellent tour of the magnificently decorated rooms. An English handout helped us keep up with the French tour. The tou...  more »
  • Beautiful rooms with French ceilings, furniture, tapestries etc... The guide very well, the given plan well done, allows to make free visit to other rooms and places. Stunning gardens, including the vegetable garden. I would have almost given 5 stars and also: easy and free parking near the church

  • This privately owned castle is located near Cluny. The castle park has been carefully redesigned, redesigned over the years and shines again in a new splendour. Take time and relax. The castle was visited by many visitors with rank and name, not only Gorbachev and Mitterrand. It belonged to the chief director of Monte Carlo during the Belle Epoque, guests were great artists like Caruso, in the garden an opera was performed annually. The décor is precious and in very good condition. For German guests: here, too, you will get detailed documents in your hand, so that you are also well informed during the tour as a non-French speaker.

  • Small and simple restored chateau. Interesting display of the restoration work which is still ongoing in the gardens. A small maze with a central lookout post entertains the little ones. The kitchen garden is also an interesting feature as well as the topiary in the formal garden.
  • A hidden gem. A bit out of the way but worth the extra kms. Very well preserved castle with amazing ceilings and walls. Wonderful gardens including a boxwood maze. English speaking guide was very good.
  • Second time I have visited this Chateau. The first time, frustratingly, it was closed for lunch. This time, I got to go inside, and it was well worth it. The tours are in French, but they give you a booklet with descriptions in English (I think there were other languages too). Inside the chateau was really beautiful. The gardens were equally beautiful, with everything in bloom while I was there. I had a very enjoyable afternoon at Chateau de Courmatin!

  • Our tour was small and had only English speakers, so the tour was conducted in English! Very good, fully furnished home that is a beautiful example of chateaus of the time period. Several rooms were closed to the public due to renovations or them being rented out as apartments, which was disappointing. Thanks to our guide for speaking English for us!
