  • the castle is very well restored and gives a very good picture of life there could be. We were served by a local caterer in an annex building, for lunch, and delivery was excellent.

  • Very nice restorations. Place of hospitality by Louis-Philippe King of the french from Queen Victoria. The "modernity of the equipment of the time surprises (Elevator, electricity etc)

  • It is by visiting the nice little park of the Castle, that curious, we take the doors of City Hall, which is a part of the castle was laid out for their office. The hospitality of the Town Hall Lady invited us to enter. The tourist office is not open on Monday, therefore this lady of hospitality that has spontaneously and kindly replaced him. Thanks to our friendly exchange, we are not only left with a few visits to local papers or elsewhere, but also with the desire to visit the Castle. The time to redo the tour and we had bought our tickets (€ 5 per persons). If like us you're not too Museum, it can be visited in an hour. I recommend this pretty Castle, well-maintained and many tables. You will be charmed by the beauty of the place, as you will be greeted with a smile by staff.

  • My maternal paternal family goes back at least nine generations living in Eu proper - while my maternal/maternal family was sourced from Corsica in the late 18th century, but, that's irrelevant to this review. What is relevant is that the Chateau has been a backdrop for most of my youthful summers - and some of those in adulthood. American tourists might very well overlook Eu, but it has a rich history - mainly that which includes Guillaume le Conquerant (William the Conquerer) as well as Lorcán Ua Tuathail (St. Laurence O'Toole the Archbishop of Dublin - back in the Norman conquest days). Regardless, the Chateau itself is host to several significant historical events. For Anglophiles, of interest would be Queen Victoria's summer stays in 1843 and 1845 as guest of Louis Philippe. the cost of a self-guided tour is modestly priced. If you're reading this, then you're very likely considering going anyway - so my review is moot. I'll let the photos do the talking. botanists will enjoy the classic French gardens, interior decorators of yesteryear will take interest in the over-the-top interiors. Back in the mid-sixties, the town of Eu took possession of the Chateau. Today, the town hall is situated on the property. If you're visiting the Chateau, it'd be a shame for you not to experience the St. Laurent O'Toole chapel at the top of the overlooking northern hill - as well as the Collegial (what most of you might think of when you think of Cathedrals from the era of Cluny).
  • Town centre museum Not sure if it was because we are English or because it was the end if the season but the staff didn't seem too bothered to help & over charged us! Not overly interesting. Grounds weren't very impressive either!
  • Super Castle free visit. Perfect home directed by people who are really in love with the place and who shares their passion. The castle is beautiful as well inside with its parquet floors and ceilings without forgetting the collection of paintings. Magnificent. Very nice. And more price entry 5 reasonable euros. Perfect short

  • The old Museum. But so beautiful. Must visit

  • Worth a stop. Rare furniture, a little history, and a castle with its beautiful park where everyone can feel royal, and it made good from time to time.
