  • More than 2 hours to visit to the Castle and its Park. Beautiful castle where we visit many pieces until the (secure) way. The park with the ruins and huts in the trees is worth the walk! The more the opportunity to visit with his dog as well as the Castle Park. Least the castle would have deserved a guided tour as little explanation!

  • We were surprised at the beauty of this castle well furnished with information to each piece a video that reminds the history of France and including the marriage of Duchess Anne of Brittany and Charles 8 gardens are very well maintained with play areas for children and also an informative course on plants fruits and trees

  • A beautiful bridge Lévis welcomes us. We started our tour by the Park to allow our grandchildren romp. A beautiful park with a playground and a beautiful cabin in the trees. The castle in him nothing extraordinary except the Wedding Hall.

  • Absolutely amazing. 3 children aged 1.5- 3.5yrs and they had a wonderful day. NOT stroller/wheelchair friendly as typical narrow castle steps, but we left the stroller with reception, and the children all had no trouble navigating their way around. Beautiful castle, phenomenal views, and modern, fun play structures in the beautiful gardens. Would recommend.
  • Nice place to visit. There were two nice animations that kids liked a lot: drawbridge closing and sword "fighting". These are nice addition to the castle visit. Nice walk in the "garden". Not that expensive for a 2 to 3 hour attraction.
  • Small but nice château. You can't go inside of the château (except for the toilets and gift shop) and it isn't as impressive as other châteaux in the area, but I still think it's worth a visit.
  • The gardens are beautiful and well kept. I found the castle itself a lot less interesting than the Villandry. It was a good side trip from the Villandry however and the price was acceptable. The staff were very nice. If it were not for the staff and the garden I'd have only given three stars. They made the difference.
  • Sensitively restored chateau. Excellent tableau depicting the marriage of Charles VIII and Anne of Brittany - in English
