  • 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

  • We booked for our children and a "floral" activity. This happens in the gardens of the Castle and it's frankly recommend! We were welcomed by a charming moderator who we helped and routed throughout the 2 hours of workshops. We had a lot of material to achieve the compositions, both at the hardware level (pots, pumpkin, foam, glitter...) at the level of the flowers, we had available in the building, or that we could freely go pick in the garden. We came out thrilled, with superb creations... and delighted little girls. We unfortunately do not have the possibility to visit the Castle because it was closed in the morning and we were not available the after noon, but we were sorry and will try, that's for sure, to go back!

  • Pretty little madness 19 eme, with a beautiful renaissance remains. A pleasant atmosphere thanks to the present memories of the Duke of Windsor. An organ, a wonder to discover!

  • 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.

  • I simply loved! A great habitable Castle well preserved! A pity that there was not more open rooms! :)

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