  • A nice small castle to visit family. The Museum of prehistory is a little dated but still interesting. The old games have enjoyed to our teenagers. Nice view of the Castle from the markets in the face of the basin. The visit to the caves is very interesting.

  • Pretty Castle well preserved parts, excellent guide and beautiful garden has human size, mounted on stilts. It is a bit expensive for a family. The caves are a little far but the ride is nice.

  • A beautiful setting, the history of the castle is available in a guided tour as well as in an exhibition very well presented. The gardens are a model of respect for nature that married well with the surrounding constructions. It rests, it takes its time and it made a detour of several centuries in back for a moment. Do not plan a detour, better...
