  • A beautiful castle very well preserved with lots of objects found or returned. We're not bored do

  • That beautiful memories gush through the gates of the castle under the leadership of his charming conservative Mr Duparcq. Home, culture and friendly. We must recognize that it is pure happiness to find this so well maintained family home with so many objects beautifully presented. The city of Eu can be proud of holding a jewel in the Crown of France. The gardens of King Louis-Philippe are guarded by the bust of Countess of Paris who has done so much for the backup of this Royal House where she was born on August 13, 1911.

  • For such a small town, it's amazing, this castle is really a little Versailles, really worth the visit, I did not expect this. See the documentation before go you and enjoy it fully! Explanations that are given are very clear, we learn a lot about the history of France.

  • 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).
  • Nice museum and building.
  • 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!
  • The city has demonstrated the purpose of the time in beautiful places. So parts of this royal castle found some life. The gardens are also beautiful and serve as backdrop to this House so many royalty have stayed.
