  • We rode our bikes up a steep hill to be greeted by the sight of the chateau perched on the hilltop. There weren't many people there, but on entering found that it dramatically exceeded our expectation...  more »
  • I'm sure the chateau is wonderful but what we don't like is the hours/service. We rode on our bikes up a huge hill to get to the chateau. We locked up our bikes and at 12:25 p.m. walked toward the gates only to have the gate person close it in front of us. The chateau was closed from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. I explained that we were from overseas and this would be the only chance we would have to see the place and could we have just a few minutes to go inside. He said no and told us to take a picture from the road. Then he went in and had his lunch. Strange that a public monument is only open from 10:30-12:30 and from 2:30-:4:30 p.m.
  • This small chateau had all I was looking for--in addition to the suits of armor and weaponry, rooms decorated in according to a variety of historical periods, and a cabinet of curiosities on the top floor. Excellent vistas from the parapets.
  • Beautiful and quiet, elegant and soothing. I like it, will come back.
  • One of the most beautiful castle in the region. Very well restored and maintained, fully furnished, with a collection of common objects and weapons from the 14th to the 18th century. Are in a dominant position, it offers its visitors a breathtaking view of the surrounding area. A must see!

  • Beautiful castle, probably the best of the region, very well maintained as much outside as inside, very well furnished rooms (weapon room, rooms, kitchens,...) I highly recommend visiting this castle.
