Absolutely brilliant. The tour guide kindly took three of us around, and did an absolutely incredible job of bringing everything to life - its rich history and architectural intricacy, and all his hands-on experience of its faithful restoration. How much love and attention has been put into all this work shows through at every step of the way. This was one of the highlights of our holiday, and I can't thank and congratulate him enough.
Guillaume AullenExcellent tour with a guide to the historical and architectural culture without flaw. The visit was a real moment of pleasure and discovery thanks to the talent of the guide. The castle in him even worth to be seen, to some of these aspects that make its originality in Burgundy and France.
Clémence TUROCExciting tour with guide. A must see.
Frédéric MOUTOUA waterlogged place of history for understanding so many thing in the history of the region.
Jean Marc BonnetSuperb! With an owner who tells you the life of the Castle as if it was at the time of its splendour.
