    We decide d to go to the park with friends and their 5 year old daughter, we look at their website to see opening day and hour. Their site tells us that c is open from Monday to Saturday. We take our picnic and go. 1 very hard found because more Panel d indication has the fork, so we c is lost. 2 we finally arrived after having turned. and her closed. Park everything. big disappointment for the big and small. at any time on the site there are write that the castle was undergoing renovation, the animals moved and the Park closes. Very disappointed with their non-professional communication system. We can s understand the renovation but with internet today we cannot understand the lack of information. and put more sign c is not a luxury. Thank you.

    For the heritage days, we decide to visit this castle which is noted on the official guide to the heritage days free! We arrive on site, not a Hello or a smile, and we throw us in the face: 23.50 euros! not even please nothing! a bit stunned, we will not collect and request a brochure to return later in the season with their opening times and prices! The cashier turns heaving a huge sigh and looking up to heaven! If you don't want work Madam, stay home! Politeness is not set, we will not be back to visit this castle! It is a pity, because from the outside, it looks nice! but employees make you flee! and has 14.50euros the adult entry, one would expect has at least a Hello and a please!

    I love this place for its garden and its beautiful plants, for its giant chessboard, his Castle, his days tasting summer, its games for children. [The zoo and visit the animals are to improved, a modernization of the enclosure would really not luxury, both for the beasts for visitors.] I don't like too the zoo part, but much the Park part! Edit: There are more animals exposed and more zoo. Visit of the garden and the castle only

    Very friendly visit to this atypical Castle. Reconstructed rooms, golf course and views friendly. Games for children life-size, small zoo with lions, wolves and bears beautiful among other... Ideal for lovers of history and animals or visit for families.

    Only open during the week and in the afternoon, no interest to go if it is to empty the parking and that children watch air game through the fence.

    I love. We have an annual card that allows to go as soon as the weather. Except the last time or we got in front of the closed door because they couldn't open this year... Very disappointed and a little angry because this was not indicated to the out of the high road. That would avoid a few km and more. Besides our annual card was still valid for this early in the season. But I think that they have not wanted to and that stuff doesn't prevent not back of CA re - opens! Very friendly staff. Walk off together, very nice playground.
