  • Do with the guided tour that lasts about twenty minutes, description of the 3 main parts of the castle with evocation of the author and his writings which gives us envy to read his works. The garden is free.

  • We had a good visit and by chance, virtually alone in the Castle. A nice discovery of Balzac and his universe in a peaceful place. Extraordinary wallpapers in the rooms of the Castle. See if you're in the area.

  • Not a real Castle, more a stately villa in the countryside, where Balzac spent a lot of time and wrote several of his most famous novels. Architecturally it is not very significant, deserves to be visited only as part of a tour of castles being close to Azay Le Rideau. But overall it's a romantic and relaxing place that brings serenity and offers a glimpse of Balzac and what inspired him. The staff is very friendly and professional.

  • in a building of type mansion the BALZAC Museum shines by the sobriety of its architecture, gardens are a bit abandoned or not enough set value. However the Interior is a beautiful Tapestry and textile furniture everything is very elegant.

  • Small museum with interesting pieces. A bit small it has quickly made the turn. Not put garden in value damage.

  • A very nice Museum. What struck me the most is the reconstitution of what would be the many home described in the books of Balzac. Throughout the tour we are plunged into the iconic piece of Balzac as the antique dealer! In short a good time in this beautiful countered
