Hier kan je rondlopen als een echte ridder of jonkvrouw wat de kinderen heel plezant vinden uiteraard. Binnen kan je op de derde verdieping verkleedkledij in alle maten vinden dus zeker dit eerst doen... more »Here you can walk around like a real Knight what the children find very obviously. In can you on the third floor dress up clothing in all sizes find so certainly do this first before you continue with the visit. So many areas are not open to visit and for the library and the archives you need wachtennop guidance but certainly do. The entrance price is a bit on the high side considering the open quantity. Do especially the caves on the ground floor, is fun to wander around in.

Nice Chateau, there are tours for the library rooms which I recommend doing and the rest of the rooms have explanations (French and English) in them. Interesting to look at the family history, especially as the same family live in it now. Only thing is I could of used more information on what happened during the revolution. Great views from it over the town, very picturesque place.

When you arrive at the Chateau you won't believe how beautiful the castle is. In front of the entrance there is a small river en the Chateau is located at a hill. On the day we have been there, there was a little medieval festival with music and Knight. It made the experience complete. Definitely a recommendation when you are in the area.

Great castle. Entrance fee adults 10 euro, children 5 euro. But for that money you can see a lot of the castle. 3 floors, basement and underground hallways. I die not expect that it was zo interesting. 100 worth the visit.

Lots of history with family well connected to French royalty. 3 floors & dungeon to explore, guided tour of library in several languages.
