J'ai visité ce château magnifique tant à l'intérieur qu'à l'extérieur. Très joli parc je vous conseille d'aller le visiter. more »I visited this beautiful castle both inside and outside. Very nice Park I advise you to go and visit.
This was surprisingly nice place to visit. On the outskirts of Paris its less crowded and very well maintained. The gardens outside are stunning and you can find distinct variety of flowers. The castle inside is perhaps like any other castle but all in all gives a great experience on visit.
