  • This is a very impressive family Castle by its size! Maintain this legacy must be very expensive. All parties do not visit since it is inhabited, but it's worth the look. We discover inner decorations preserved of the revolution by a clever camouflage. There is little period furniture but the atmosphere remained despite everything. I recommend the visit wouldn't be what to help finance its maintains.

  • We really want to visit this castle and were not disappointed, very well received by the owner that has guided us for an hour through the renovated rooms of the Castle including a very nice gallery with beautiful paintings. One more really visit a castle inhabited by passionate people which tells us the little and the great history of the places. The Park is very beautiful and the countryside around is a beautiful setting for this little jewel. Thanks to the family of so much effort to the delight of visitors and to preserve the heritage of our nice France!

  • 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.

  • Although not one of the most famous, this is a beautiful chateau in the Loire Valley. A definite visit.
  • Boring, no activity except a human sized chess set and a 4 power, who had not much do here but were nevertheless interesting, has them. He had absolutely nothing to visit apart from two seedy cellars, I don't understand the interest at this place.
