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.
Magnificent Castle with guided visits to know more about French history
