  • A less invaded than the other castle that allows to fully enjoy the site. Open in winter, it also allows to enjoy the area regardless of the season

  • Wonderfully decorated a castle, it dominates the horizon line, the views of the castle of the city are also fantastic, the grounds are quite well laid out for children. Very interesting and well presented. A real gem of the region near Tours.

  • Very impressive Castle. The ruins in the garden (and the tree house) and view over the Loire should not be missed out. You can also bring a bottle of wine and have a picnic in the garden.
  • 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.
  • Nice château to make part of a day trip. Cute village too, with delicious icecream
  • 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.
