  • The Museum of the castle to discover a little Eu history, related with the visits of Queen Victoria in this summer residence of King Louis-Philippe. We can see inside the dishes and the kitchen at the time. We also have beautiful paintings and beautiful pieces. A walk in the gardens of the castle is very nice.

  • This castle, rebuilt in the 16th century, served as a royal residence until the second half of the 20th century. Part is now open to the public as a museum. We discover (pay, free visit) apartments re-decorating in the 19th c. by King Louis-Philippe and his descendants. In addition to furniture and family portraits (including the interesting series of the Dukes of Guise), I noted especially admirable parquets in marquetry. Do not miss to take a walk in the gardens.

  • A very well preserved Castle, it is wonderful, very welcoming to see professionals. Just behind passing on the side there is a beautiful park!

  • 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
