  • Also bewitching outside than inside. An original venue that mixes reverie, nature and art. We can have lunch fresh meals and the place lends itself to a visit of a full afternoon.

  • The first time I visit a castle and I've been amazed between different gardens of the castle that tell a story or makes us discover an artist. In addition to the stories that we're told. Level gastronomy, at the castle restaurant food products came straight from the garden and local producers. If you succumb to the dessert feel free to enjoy the garden Lavender cream. You'll understand the Riveau Castle is the castle to visit when you go to the region Center.

  • Castle not to be missed. Beautiful entertainment in the Park, outstanding gardens and and very well restored interiors.
