  • A superb visit. Whether it's the exteriors or interiors, the castle is magnificent! Every small corner brings his story... The painted Gallery is very moving. It feels actor of a magical place, the space of one hour... I urge again and again! Special mention to the young guide Leah, thank you for this visit and this good communicative mood!

  • We visited the castle of Giseux this Thursday, May 9. The setting is wonderful. Emerges a certain serenity. We are told not to immediately or do not go, what not to touch. You can take photos. Very special mention for Marjoram, spontaneous and cute who told us immediately with a great natural that she was recently at the Castle. His comments were of high quality. She was listening and made this interactive vivite. Bravo. Thanks to the owners. Pierre-Marie Chaillou (Sucé-sur-Erdre / Loire-Atlantique)
