  • Superb gardens, restores good Castle, Garden interesting, but on the inside too d ' objects non-al ' history of the Castle are poses here and the, so this gave us as l ' impression of a bric a brac. D ' elsewhere, the guide, which is obviously not enough informed, did not answer has questions about the nature of some objects. I put very well because the castle is known and famous, it's good to visit, however please put l ' order in there, and for the duration of the visit, we breezed past in the bath of the Lady room , because he needed to hurry another group was us, we have moderately appreciated... Finally we also find that the part the latest visiting free n was not enough renovated and attractive.

  • Beautiful chateau. Wonderful painted rooms. Romantic gardens and great vegetable garden.
  • There are rooms perfectly preserved which will leave you in awe, also an amazing French garden, maze, and an elevated bird cage to enjoy the views. Highly recommend.
  • 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.
  • Very nice castle. Guided tour in french but I received a Dutch text to read along.
  • 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.
