  • The site itself is really beautiful both at the level of the castle to the Park around. The tour is really very interesting even for children and visited rooms are really worth visiting

  • Thanks to information received at the Tourist Office of Tournus we discovered this amazing venue. Since its arrival at the ticket booth we were very well received. Our guide was superb and gave us a real journey into the past. Then we knew it was the owner. There are no words to describe her welcome, makes you feel at home ... We will definitely return next spring. Is a must visit if you are in the area.

  • 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.
