    Beautiful castle showing the evolution of the architecture of the Gothic to the renaissance. The tour is of very high quality: good explanations, lively and interesting for all audiences.

    classic tour of the castle is very interesting. the Anastasia guide expressed us his knowledge in a very humble and accessible. She is very attentive to visitors. for the child tour on the theme of "beauty and the beast", wonderful moment that my daughter is not ready to forget. congratulations to the candle and beautiful who have made this moment a magical memory for children! The place is beautiful; We can walk on the field and visit the Chapel and the lower rooms! Very nice accessible wooden games and the small tearoom for refreshments at the top! Bravo, we come back that's for sure!

    BJR, magnificent Castle, we did the tour that was very interesting and necessary to learn the history of this magnificent place rich in history. We must save our heritage, it is the role of the State and the region to help homeowners save our heritage, to help communicate our history to our children. These are the fundamentals of our existence among other things, it is important.

    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 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.

    Pretty Castle, but too brief explanations. It's a shame, expected for charming stories about an old family of 800 years! But the guide is basic on the history of France. Disappointed!

    Guided tour of the Castle. A little quick. Animated for children during the medieval garden.
