  • He really dominates the sector, parts of roofs in tiles varnished on the towers, a nice tour of the inside of this castle that once belonged to the son of the president SADI CARNOT. Furnished rooms and a free or guided tour. It lacks some restoration work but the view is sublime and downhill the small village is very attractive

  • Do you like the castles of Princess? Go to the castle in the distance! Splendid in a very well kept place. Small lunch on-site, to discover

  • Very beautiful castle, there is not a lot of room to visit, but the quality of the restoration of the building remains impressive. It has very nice furniture and tapestries of time to see! I would recommend seeing this castle

  • A pretty chateau. It's actually restored after being almost completely destroyed during the Revolution. So, not quite like seeing the original, but it's interesting in its own way because of that. It was reconstructed in the early 1900s.
  • Lovely Medieval Castel to visit. It doesn't take too long and has a nice small interior garden and special roof colored tiling. There is a cafe right in front we're you can get a simple lunch or a glass of wine.
  • Just my childhood castle - and sometimes romantic!
  • Stopped off here for a couple of hours during a wine tasting tour. Lovely place, and has an air of magic about it. I could have spent hours, if not days, exploring.
  • The young lady taking the tour was careful to stress the tour would only be in English if no French speakers joined us; fortunately, our party of three were the only ones who arrived, so she was kind enough to give us a personalised tour! The chateau is absolutely stunning, with beautiful views both inside and out. The guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about every room and all its items - she did an amazing job. It really was a pleasure to visit! Fair notice: some staircases go pretty high, and some parts of the self-guided tour aren't for anyone with a fear of heights.
