  • A very beautiful castle, the kitchen and the library are incredible. Open I think mainly the summer

  • At the bend of a road, a sign and a castle to discover. A site worth visiting, a very informative visit to a castle inhabited by the same family since 25 generation. A library of beautiful and very rich collections.

  • I loved the tour. A mix between history and entry in the privacy of Castle life. A panorama of hell.

  • Drive to Chateau was nice. No information provided for tour times. Only French speaking tours but guides dress and re-enact and tell stories from medieval times. Worth going to if there is nothing else to do.
  • Well worth a visit but be careful it's not open everyday. Tour spoken in French only but still very good and questions can be asked in English.
  • Worth the trip up there just for the views alone. Unfortunately there is no photography allowed in castle. You also have to take a guided tour. The fee was fair, and there wasn't many people. The drive up there had minimal signage, but the GPS managed to get us there. The castle has various rooms to see that are decorated in traditional linens. It is a functioning castle with a family living there so there are portions of the castle that are not available for viewing. If you are in the area and have a car to drive up to the castle, it'll be well worth it!
  • -Terrible service- The staff didn't told me that everyone are required to be in a group, no one can visit alone. And I have no time to wait till the next group so I went to the desk to ask for refund. However, the staff told me they don't know how to refund by card, they declared if I paid in cash, they can just give me cash back .(But I paid by card ) I asked for cash back instead , I told them its the same. But they insisted they can't give me refund by cash or card . Even their manager said they could not give me refund.They even suggest me sell ticket to other visitors. The awful thing is not about how much the money was ,but about their attitude. I wasted 9 euro! I won't be there again in the rest of my life. 小心不要刷卡,因為如果你發現你趕不上巴士想退款他們不會讓你退,法國人真的死腦筋又不願意幫你處理問題
  • Wasn’t open, winter operating hours are not what you see here on google.
