    taking advantage of the heritage days, we visited the area of candé. 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.

    I discovered a beautiful park and a beautiful tour of the castle with a guide who knows very well his subject and is very interesting... I will gladly!

    Our eldest daughter wanted to see the place of the marriage of Windsor. 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

    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.
