The main attractions include a grand staircase and galleries that are said to have been constructed based on the designs of the legendary Leonardo Da Vinci himself during the 16th Century. Although there have been a number of changes and renovations that have taken place since then, visitors can still take guided tours of the libraries, furnished rooms, and even the building’s underlying foundations. Even though most of the castle is open to the public, one wing of the castle is still occupied by the Duke and the Duchess.

  • 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.
  • Imposing castle , great place to show to children, however not so much to see at the inside.
