Unfortunately not the Park because the rain was part of. parts of the Castle are furnished style 30/40 years; the art deco bathrooms are superb. During this weekend's expo on fashion, beautiful dresses and costumes were exposed in parts. in the library an organ on 3 floors decorating the room. the field of cande is to see.
J'ai découvert un magnifique parc et une très belle visite du château avec une guide qui connait très bien son sujet et qui est très intéressante...

So the family came somewhat reluctantly to make her happy, thinking that we would lose our time to visit a small castle. Finally, we have not really regretted this choice: outside one finds very fun mechanical horses, tents are hanging from the trees and allow swinging, twirling... The Park is big, it offers lovely walks to the ponds, the former golf... As for the Castle, it is incredible: very modern, very well kept and maintained. In addition there is clear and precise explanations. We are spread very happy and convinced that we would have missed a nice tour by not coming.
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.
A fabulous and yet too little known, must-see site. We did the tour with family and had a great time. The guide was able to adapt his speech to our entire family and we are many! :-) Can't wait to see the "Chronicles of fashion" exhibition which we discovered a few items first (and especially beautiful dresses!) because it is full installation. Thanks to the staff for his warm and professional welcome! A very fast
C is just great exhibitions are top notch, friendly staff! The location field and well-restored Castle... A great time!
A nice small castle, nestled in a large park. The Park offers the advantage of being free with games available, it made us want to come back to enjoy a little longer.
Very peaceful location making the tour by the pond. Natural and pleasant environment. Games for kids homemade whose very well thought.
