According to the tour, we'll explain how this region has always been inhabited by man since prehistoric times, we'll explain the Castle, its history, its transformations... Plan a half day see a day for any visit. Very friendly, restore can be done on-site, picnic areas are available to us and a large free parking is also! Frankly, I would recommend and my score of 5 is well deserved!

Beautiful. Wear a long flowing dress to walk around the gardens like a lady. However definitely wear jeans, good boots and a head torch to get the most out of the caves! Highly recommended day out.

Pretty castle with well-kept rooms, excellent guidance and beautiful garden has a human scale, mounted on poles. It's a bit expensive for a family. The caves are a bit far, but the trip is nice. .And we will definitely come again.

If you want to feel enchantment (and like a magical princess) you must visit this land.

Lovely Chateau with beautiful gardens and scenic walks in the forest or to the caves. Masses of butterflies and dragonflies in early August.
