  • Gizeux is a little-known Castle and yet it is beautiful and well maintained! I visited him twice. A classic day tour and a visit himself at night which was really nice! Most of this place is the Gallery painted, recently restored. This family is fighting to keep this place. Do

  • By far, this activity deserves a 5. The owners are really invested. There is a tour for kids with costumes. It is the owner of the Castle, who made the visit with the children, we enjoyed. Because if it was not offered they couldn't make it. Suffice to say that the children were delighted. The guide was very friendly, we tell the life of the castle in a pleasant way. We also made hunting treasure proposed to the children. They try to get out off the beaten path by offering varied and friendly activities. Not to Miss! This activity is to do. The building is beautiful.

  • 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!
