  • Nice Chateau, especially worth a visit when combined with the Sunday market. They have two daily activities: lifting the bridge and swords fight. Keep your ticket to get discount to other castles in the area.
  • Stunning!! Loved it, 2nd pick after Villandry, well worth a visit, explore the town after or stay a day or two.
  • Very nice castle among the Loire Valley castles. In the heart of a medieval city, with a nice park and garden behind the walls. A lot of furniture, curtains, tableware, beds and so on. Not too big, but quite nice to visit. A real back-in-time feeling.
  • One of the better castles to visit with kids. Nice tour and great garden with tree house.
  • Magnificent Castle. Interior very impressive! Wedding of Anne of Brittany room covered with grandiose tapestries.
