  • Not one of the major chateau, but significant historically and a great way to spend a few hours. But best of all, we had the place to ourselves - yes, no one else was there. We enjoyed the house, they...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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!
