  • A map of the grounds in English would be a good idea. There is a map on a sign but while walking it’s hard to remember, and more signage to show the path to the gardens. Also to include English...

  • Beautiful castle has been handed through the same family more than 800 years. The architecture combines 13 to 16 centuries elements with such elegance. The castle visit is done by guided tour. Our guide is a young lady, sorry not be able to recall her name, her explanation was rich, passionate with a lot of humour. We were deeply touched by the relationship between this noble family and the villagers.
  • When you think Château opulence and splendour come to mind.. Not here though.. The tour was long and frankly a waste of time if you're not fluent in French.. The gardens are lacklustre and quite untended.. I'd say skip it for something else.
  • 3 stars as there were no proper translation for guided tour. Otherwise castle is spectacular and worth the visit
  • I avoid guided tours as I'd rather look around a place at my own pace. There is no choice here so I joined a group. The guide explained everything in French and English which took time. Frankly, I was bored to death.
  • Beautiful historical château but really "abandon". The castle it self was yellow from the old age and the garden was a little bit haggard. Such a shame
