  • Last night tour offered by the owner for this season has allowed us to spend an excellent evening in the company of a family invested and proud of its heritage. Print back in time through the candles and the costumes of our guides who were of small sketches. There are many things to see in this castle especially this magnificent room with painted panels of the pleasant visit over a glass of wine. My children and I had a great time in good company.
