  • During a nice walk, cool in the Park, we discovered beautiful sources with small legends to entertain children. Ours loved! A tasting of pineau of charentes then finished this visit and has a lot more to adults!

  • Arrival at 1 pm by the main entrance or was a little Billboard with schedules (open from 10:00 - 6:00 pm) and rates, we have simply been denied entry to the Park by the Manager since its level of door! We did not meet the criteria of visitors than she expected... Or bother her during her lunch... It's a shame, but on the other hand, we are happy to not have paid € 5 per person for this Manager.

  • A first visit with a very unpleasant home confirmed on a second visit. We asked price, advice. The employee answers we "have to read!" Everything was to match. We bought the minimum. We are very disappointed in this store. We would stay there again! Catherine in Bordeaux

  • Attractive gardens and dégustation of cognac and Pineau from this distillery.
  • Fascinating park and wells, nice tasting of pineau and cognac . No other wines. Beautiful castle but no admittance inside.
  • It's a secret!
  • Area planted friendly with all a learning path, then free tasting at the Château with the explanations of the owner! Possible purchases! It's expensive but worth it the exceptional quality! The visit of the Park costs € 2/person but it is refunded if you buy from Pinault or brandy at the Castle.

  • Without being a floral park is a nice quiet place to visit with a child's soul as fountains take you to the land of the fairies. Entry € 5/person but deductible from the purchase of an exceptional Pineau. No doubt it helps to better see the fairies! End of September, not a single mosquito Park was seen!
