  • Beautiful castle, but only partly accessible to visitors. Still worth the wait for the guided tour because the rooms open are some are worth and the view of the canal de Nantes to Brest is beautiful

  • Really nice Castle full of history with stunning views of the river. The bad thing is that visit cost you € 10, the guide speaks only French and teach you only 4 rooms. We knew little...

  • visit very rewarding in history (thanks to a great guide that has same made a touch of humor to the story) very beautiful architecture, beautiful garden and lovely view, nevertheless found the rate of the visit a bit excessive (9.90 euros per person) for visit only the ground floor of this wonderful Castle, it's a shame also to a single picture inside even without flash as found in trade of the representations of the postcard pieces.

  • Such a beautiful place, the english tour is brilliant. Two steps to get in and out but able to do them in a wheelchair. Everything is so well looked after.
  • The grounds were beautiful and the tour was very interesting and in depth. Quinten was our English your guide who described everything very well and made the tour entertaining. Many times our group were in laughter. Would definitely recommend!
  • At Nine euros to view five semi furnished rooms with nothing really special in any of them. The tour of the house lasting45 minutes.I think it was way overpriced and boring and i would not recommend it.My visit did not include the visit to the puppet museum which cost 5 euros extra.
  • Magnificent castle located overlooking river. The town has some interesting buildings too. Worth a visit.
  • Lots of Medieval history here from the residence of Simone de Beaumanoir, a knight who took part in the locally famous Colone de Trente (The Battle of the 30) one of the last battles to up hold the ancient values of Chivalry.
