  • Nestled in the heart of a beautiful forest of Sologne...! Although it is a little bit in the shadow of his older brothers such as Chambord, Cheverny or Valencay => it merit than the DETOUR!!... Also Bernard Buffet is to have "bitten fingers" in his time! ............. We did visit many times to our friends and family, including Americans, visiting us... This time it was a wonderful family visit, 3 generations together, and we have our small children discover! ........... It also gives the impression of coming to visit family, "our ancestors"! .... In addition, arriving in late afternoon, we had the chance to make a "private visit" with a charming, passionate and exciting Guide thank you very much... Certainly, it is not very big, but very pretty and very richly furnished!!... Witness of the past and the "dynasty" of Marcheville... Dommmmmage not be able to take pretty pictures inside... Some beautiful Statues on the lawn in front of the Castle... A pleasant walk is a must in the old rose garden! ...... We were a little bit disappointed by the "Conservatory of the strawberry", although very informative for the younger a little regret => more swans on the moat there.. .it gave him even more charm!

  • Beautiful castle which allows you to see a different type of architecture as those of Chambord, Cheverny... Very well located between Chambord and Beauval which allows to add a little more visiting this area.

  • Each year, we take pleasure in visiting a few castles in this region. After discovering the most prestigious and for which all the "advertising" is made, we are expanding our curiosity and are not disappointed at the smaller! And here, we appreciate the visit of these little pearls, little mentioned but which delight! When we have an exciting guide, nothing for us, it's really the most, as this was the case last Tuesday! Thanks to her. It is necessary to promote these 'small' castles which deserve a visit and who do not leave indifferent visitors!

  • This was one of 8 chateaus in the Loire Valley. We felt it was a bit of a hidden gem. It is quite removed and feels serene and peaceful. We always especially enjoy the chateaus with water, and this one is quite picturesque. Worth a short stop.
  • This castle is what struck me the most among those visited in the Loire Valley. Outside the normal tourist routes, preserves more of the other constructive spirit with authentic memorabilia and not copies or reproductions! Ancira is occupied by the owners. You can't take pictures inside unfortunately!

  • Lovely Castle, I visited it the first time in 1963 at the age of 11 years shortly after the filming of an episode of Thierry La Fronde and this summer in July 2017a 66ans. It is discovered at the last moment surrounded by its green setting, the guide is very professional, inside authentic, especially do not miss this wonderful little castle that will change you from others, the price of the tour is very affordable and it is located that has 20 km Cheverny

  • We enjoyed the tour made by a very friendly Lady, taking the time to explain to us and show us the parts of the Castle and how it expresses itself gives very want to listen to it. Thanks to her. It is one rather humble Castle compared to other more well-known in the region but also interesting and worth to be visited. At least it is not disturbed by the crowds of tourists.
