  • We only visited the garden but it provided really nice views of the town and some nice photo opportunities. 
  • This chateau is totally uncommercialised. We loved it. It was almost as though you would meet the family as you walk from room to room. There is an amazing spiral staircase and we thought it was just ...  more »
  • Castle with a great history, but especially traced since the purchase of a wealthy Polish family. The rooms are richly furnished and decorated. Everything is accessible. (to touch) We have the impression of walking around his castle. No guide but a very detailed and comprehensive workbook mini. Just take the time to read. The Park is small but filled with sights. The rates are reasonable. €8 2 h visit adulte.pour. Remember to go see the recumbent in the village church, the Lords of the Castle. Not disappointed by the visit stamped Village more 'beautiful village of france'

  • 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.
