Chateau de Fontaine-Henry Reviews
Une propriété exigeante, menée par un propriétaire descendant direct des familles qui ont construit et fait vivre cette merveille de la renaissance, avec ses 3 époques. On notera les plus hauts toits ... more »A demanding property, conducted by a direct descendant families owner who built and live this wonder of the renaissance, with its 3 eras. It should be noted the highest rooftops of France, very beautiful sculptures in the stone of Creully, unfortunately often damaged by pollution guides are not professional but excellent, the animation succeed and attract the curious, neighbors and summer visitors. An amazing, must-see site! Go often!
Village magnifique, très bien entretenu, maçonnerie, propreté,...Dépaysement tout près de CAEN. Belle architecture des monuments. more »Beautiful, well maintained village, masonry, cleanliness... Change of scenery just outside CAEN. Beautiful architecture monuments.
Animations d'une organisation médiocre pour l'accueil. Arrivée à 15h20 nous ne sommes rentrés dans le parc qu'à 16h20 (environ 15min pour trouver à se garer et 40min d'attente pour passer en caisse). ... more »Animations of a poor organization for the home. Arrived at 15:20 we not returned in the Park to 16 h 20 (about 15 min to find a parking space and 40 min wait to cash). The input and output are in the same place which is particularly complicated when the entrance is crowded with people on top of each other on several meters. A single window for payment (instead of the advertised two in the path leading to the counter); as a result when the queues have to merge conflicts between people occur. This situation has put me off as well as my daughter 7 years. My youngest son taking in everything, we have spent 1 hour on site (for 45 min wait and one hour return). Note that once on-site space is large enough so that the crowd disperse and travel are very nice. The game of track, I've seen seduce some children and parents, is suitable for children of 7 years or more. Old games available are mobbed, so it is not always possible to try (or then in demonstrating there even ten minutes of waiting). They are very interesting and family but someone ' each are in poor condition or unusable. The educational garden is full of Brambles and herbs. However a few vegetable squares with fruit shrubs, vegetables or herbs are arranged in front of the chapel. In summary an exit that can be interesting if the entrance was better managed. With young children it is difficult to avoid in our little ones to be pushed around by adults in the queue or the people trying to be frailler a passage out, and backpacks at the height of their face... The price is affordable. Interesting side can be the set of tracks for adults and games atan for young and old. Nothing to amazing however.
Cool privately owned castle. The tour is however only in French.
Beautiful place and very clean.
Honestly it's more cool from the outside than the inside. Tour was slow and boring, especially with 5 kids. They make too much out of the artwork and you only get to tour about 1/3 of the actual chateau. Fun little game area at the end for the kids, but nothing to write home about here for families.
I absolute love it, my children and I were very entertained. Twas a superb visit .
I Would not reccomend for non french speakers -guided tours in french only with rather thin printed guide in English - 10-15 minutes talk (in french) in each room with 3 lines in the guide. About half our party were not french speakers. the chateau loked quite interesting but this is not how to present it to non French visitors.
