  • You get a guided tour of the chateau. 17th century interiors. Nice gardens and very historic. Gift shop and ticket office near the main road.
  • The gardens are fantastic, especially for kids. Castle is nice, with special mentions to the stair case which is a work of art in itself.
  • Nice castle between Dijon and Lyon. Beautiful maintained garden.
  • Amazing gem, worth a detour. Original decor from the 17th century. Beautiful, peaceful gardens.
  • Excellent example of castle changing through centuries. Very nice garden, rooms full of history, some if them really special. A lot of authentic items still in a castle. Good guide. A must stop.
