  • One castilllo. All share things and all are characterized by some particularity. Autonomous visit is quick and does not disappoint. Scarce parking and problems to stop with a group or Park a motor coach.

  • A nice idea to trip not far from Salt Lake City. This castle has a nice Park. Inside the castle is well furnished. I did a tour. It is useful to understand the history.

  • 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.
  • Great visit! A historical place in a beautiful garden. The tours are in French but tourists can get booklets in several languages to follow along.
  • Hesitant at first but really ended up liking the castle. It was interesting seeing the before and after photos
  • Very informative. The guide was excellent. Well worth the visit. The gardens were a maze ing!
  • A quite remarkable castle with a beautiful work of restoration. Visits guided (approximately 1 hour) are quite interesting. A simple walk in the Park is also pleasant.
