  • This charming chateau is in the middle of a picturesque little Loire village - definitely worth a stop, particularly for the views from the Renaissance garden  more »
  • The castle is very beautiful and well furnished, with many information in each room inside. The gardens are also very nice. The animations that they offer are great for kids and adults. The place is suitable for families.
  • On the way to ... we stopped by. A fantastic family experience. Right balance between culture, fantastic view over the city, activities and animation for children. The stop took a little bit longer than expected 😁
  • Tour of chateau is well signed, informative and interesting. Lot of focus on furniture and interior decoration but a reasonable amount on the history of the place and the "big" wedding.
  • A good chateau. Free parking on the right side (mostly occupied by locals though, hard to get a spot on weekend) Flyers in 8 languages in every room. A park inside with playgrounds for kids. Several shows included: performance (in French), falcons, smth else.
  • Very very nice. Lots of attractions to see and a very nicely out together display.
