Nous arrivons sur place, pas un bonjour, ni un sourire,... more »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!

Excellent moment familial
Geoffrey M.I love this place for its garden and its beautiful plants, for its giant chessboard, its castles, its days tasting summer. But hey I full-time the poor lion, old and tired. I don't like too the zoo part, but much the Park part!
Aurélie SalisIt changes the simple zoo! Animal Park + visit to the Castle + atypical play area. View closely wolves, bears, lions and monkeys. Big and small (2, 5 years and 5 years) are fun. Playground surprising (game failure) and the giant goose, outdoor labyrinth,... Ball pool game. Lovely time guaranteed!
Valérie ColmanGreat tour of the magnificent Castle and its animal park
Marie Line DELANSAYFor all audiences. Large and small. Visit to the Castle, animal park, game of discovery of flowers and vegetables from the garden, and the country liquor tasting. Playground and rest in the shade.
