  • 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!
