  • It was closed and the hours are not posted! Very frustrating!
  • Had a wedding here, the place is stunning and ideal for a summer party. There is however a major downside, the lady who owns the castle is not a professional and lost her cool several times. She shouted at people for sitting on the furniture without warning. She went on a rant for no reason, almost making the bride cry. Her husband is a good guy but she is a horrible host. Be careful, as this can trigger unwelcome consequences on an emotional day.
  • Nice, natural, quite and beautiful chateau..
  • Magnificent Castle we were unfortunately not able to visit because there was an event already full...

  • Guided tour of the castle in just 45 minutes. It is much too fast and is not even the time to appreciate the quality and professionalism of the guide. Too bad. 1 h 30 would be welcome. Superb Castle quite atypical. To see.
