  • Very nice Castle to visit freely, or with one accompanying night and day depending on the different animations: Halloween, Easter. To find out, because it is very well organized. CONSIDER A BOOK.

  • Wonderful stay at the Castle, it's a change of scenery, the room and the bathroom magic! Superb breakfast, lovely staff and owners, we regret only for not having been able to dine there! Thank you

  • I admit, I was skeptical at first. While the setting is wonderful, but I was afraid to stay on my hunger inside. Limit a little laughed when I saw our guide arrived with his white wig and his accent to cut with a knife. But just past the gates of the Castle I was transported. The guide has been exciting and excellent, I loved it and even found his accent brought a touch that he should not delete! He showed nice, smiling, joking with us as with children, a great guide! As for the visit, it was just as exciting! We will return to visit the lower rooms. And frankly if you're not cowards like me, go there for Halloween (book before) it must be fantastic in such a setting! Before leaving, don't forget to make the tour of the Castle by the trail. We found with the given to the small track set, and we loved it! In short, no blackheads! Home top, top, top parking visit! That say otherwise, go!
