  • I went several times during my visits in Burgundy and I like really this castle and especially the outdoor gardens. The vegetable garden is superb with a very variety of local plants. The maze very well-maintained and it's always fun to get lost (think to bring something up on the central tower to guide you)! The moat with many geese and ducks. So the end of the day to go, it's very nice and light is superb! The Interior is worth the look and also to see the amazing monumental staircase! After the visit, there are 2 small coffees in front for a drink and a very good wine advice on the wines of the region

  • Well worth the visit even if the guided visit is in French. However if you do understand the language it's quite fascinating and very informative.
  • Everyone has to visit this beautiful chateau. It's the best preserved chateau in the southern half of France and not many know this....
  • Gardens are great to walk among, the maze if fun especially for kids. Bring some food and have a picnic in one of the gardens.
  • 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.
