Vu et revu, ce château est magnifique. Les pièces sont meublées, tout est très bien expliqué. Également, très joli parcours à l extérieur. more »Seen and reviewed, this castle is magnificent. The rooms are furnished, everything is very well explained. Also, very nice route on the outside.

J'aurais pu rester des heures dans ce château tellement il est intéressant. Toutes les salles reconstituent la vie de l'époque et de Fenelon (que je ne connaissais pas avant d'arriver). Les commentair... more »I could spend hours in this castle so it is interesting. All rooms reenact life time and Fenelon (that I didn't know before arriving). Comments and explanations are detailed enough but I got 4☆ because I find it unfortunate that there is no translation for foreign tourists (at least English). The France is not visited by the French! Rich history with large collections of artefacts (weapons, decoration, kitchen utensils,...)
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.
Beautiful and quiet, elegant and soothing. I like it, will come back.
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.
Dovahthug !The home is extremely cold, the price is €9 per person which is too expensive because the tour is not guided. The photos are prohibited for pretext that the castle is inhabited only UN-inhabited rooms are open to the public (except if the inhabitants live in windows...). We left the Castle before finishing to visit because they accused us (of little courteous way) to block the passage with our dogs while people were behind us, then asked to ensure that our dogs are each in a different room! If we don't want dogs in a castle should therefore not access them! Note that strollers are prohibited. Anyway, go your way, there are so many castles in France you can well do without it.
Mathilde Lucien-ReinetteVery nice visit. This site is amazing and very interesting furnished rooms for children. When I see reviews on the rate, I'm surprised. When have knows how much cost to maintain a place of this type, it is normal to contribute...
