  • Very good tour, accompanied by a young guide very competent and very interesting! This visit and the garden are worth visiting!

  • The visit of the area and its castle we amazed, due to its vastness, its diversity but also for its beauty. There are many activities and events appear to be regularly places like recently the anniversary of marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. To visit!

  • The setting is ideal to spend a Sunday with family. The little shop offers what drink. A remake to the more fast!

  • The castle itself is nice but not fantastic, a bit modern. You'll love it if you like organs, as you can see all the inside of the one there (impressive) or if you like autographs (check the wall of the library). The most important is the park and the garden, very nice on the top of the hill. And then the domain offers a huge area where international musical events are held every summer. worth it for a nice walk, some people use it for running.
  • Very nice Castle guide that we had with the CP class, not all patient with children and she can scream at them! Certainly the places are to respect but the children spoke just a little at the same time that's all. Too bad!

  • Few people despite an area wide and pleasant to visit. Outside of the castle is in the works, but the Interior is remarkable, in particular the organ on 3 floors!
