  • Beautiful small original castle with its different parts according to the times. The owners of the 1920s brought him a very surprising modernity for the time. Don't miss the dressing room of the Duchess of Windsor with her wonderful outfits of great designers as well as her wedding dress which was celebrated in this castle.

  • It's a very beautiful castle of several epochs who deserves to be better known. Parts to visit are well preserved and well stocked but l "opening to visits other parts would be appreciated. The Park is big, nice for a stroll and offers a beautiful view.

  • With our little girl, we went a day Christmas Magic... A real success... With a perfect... Organization and a strong attendance, but all with a lot of fluidity... Fifteen workshops, Christmas décor, a father Christmas... the trees... and all the workshops for children, Lego has at the bottom of the garden, cakes decorate in the hunting lodge, wonderful tale (a little sad) in the library of the chanteau, Christmas wreath, impressive model train circuit... miniature farm... Excellent initiative, welcome, as always on TOP, gorgeous setting... and parking is full... yet it is great my little girl request has go back has the next edition... why not on several days

  • 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.
  • Know the history of this castle is its charm, visiting the area is a pleasure (to prepare his camera for the deer can be seen). Under renovation in October 2016, entered half price.

  • Friendly field for the walk but it must check the opening before you go... Under penalty of being in front of a door closed.
