  • 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!

  • First of all, we're coming across a majestic Park. A pleasant surprise we expected: reduced rate, because there is some renovation work. From the entrance of the Castle, we are greeted very kindly. At our disposal, explanatory sheets laminated, legible, do us share the life of the owners at the time. A little later in the rooms, a young woman of staff discusses with us, in a way argued about the history of this castle. We notice, laid bouquets of flowers here and there. Heating offers a sense of comfort. And modern comfort was, in 1930, in every room: bathroom, telephone, etc.. The library with its unique organ is the highlight of the visit, not to be missed. We will return to the organ concerts planned later this year. In the garden, that day, the party flavors and its street musicians give this place an air of holiday... One of the most beautiful small castles all near Tours.

  • 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.
