  • Nice little chateau. Entry fee was 5,50 €. If you have seen other chateaus, it's not a must-do...It's too similar to other chateaus though. If you're into that stuff, go for it.

  • A wonderful place with magical interior decorations and a fascinating history. The art work and tapestries are stunning. Our guide was incredible as well and brought it all together with fun and amusing stories.
  • One of the best Castel visits I've done in France so far. Also, pretty beautiful and with an interesting tapestry collection
  • Beautiful architecture in Great historical value, there's also a wonderful Avenue of fine restaurants and tasty ice cream just around the corner
  • A beautiful place to visit in summer, however the tour guide was not bilingual and I missed half of the information as they spoke (in French) very quickly. Too much to ask for a bilingual guide?
  • Super beautiful castle and very interesting
