  • Nice to visit, completely furnished Castle. Many hunting trophies, including of protected species. I must say that the nobles of the time gave no such things thought. The visit is focused to the glory of the nobles who lived in it which is annoying. The visit which is done in about an hour. Price of the tour €8

  • Superb little castle, beautifully furnished and very well positioned in a beautiful and authentic village. The Park should be better maintained but we imagine than to renovate such monuments remains very expensive. We liked.

  • Beautiful small village, and very quiet. The chateau guards over the town, and is visible from just about everywhere.
  • One of our favourite chateaux to visit in the Southern Touraine area of the Loire Valley.Real lived-in feel (because it is) with well furnished rooms. You have the added bonus of its setting in one of the 'Les-Plus-Beaux-Villages-de-France'
  • Truly beautiful. Not mentioned in many travel guides but a must to visit!
  • A beautiful castle furnished to the landscaped garden. The castle is very steeped in the Polish culture of the owner, it is all the more unusual! Many small treasures was discovered! Ballads from the balconies of the Claude offers magnificent views of the old houses of the river and the Castle. One of the most beautiful villages of France.

  • The village really worth the detour and the Castle too. A short visit which will probably deserved a guide.
