  • Interesting guided tour for this pretty Castle furnished with period furniture of course. It is also possible to visit the gardens for free. Close, the Church with a cemetery that would want to be buried here in the middle of the flowers and the singing of the birds! A visit not to be missed in the vicinity of Lisieux.

  • We wanted to visit this castle, but were unable to make the garden (2 euro per person). Too bad because you have done a few kilometers for the visit. Besides the Belgians and English were disappointed with this disappointment. Otherwise outwardly it is a nice small castle, well-preserved. Garden by so exceptional

  • A castle that is worth visiting. Furniture, paintings and other are original and its history is worth a stop. Great welcome from the guides and an hour almost thirty of visit. A nice little park where it is good to walk. Very good tour.
