  • Thanks to the Guide book for drawing our attention to this castle, really very interesting and representative of the time Louis XIII. We particularly enjoyed the tour. On the other hand, I absolutely agree with the position taken by the owners as the quasi-abandon by the State of heritage (in 14 years subsidies at national level fell by half in favor of much more ephemeral events).

  • The castle is beautifully situated in a large park, very competent management by the owners. Informative and nightfall.

  • 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.
