    The Castle burned down in 1948, but the Park and dependencies are worth visiting. It's good to stroll in the Park and the garden where there is a peaceful atmosphere. Do not miss the tasting of the wines of the estate which contains surprises. A quiet place far from the affluence of its illustrious neighbors.

    Gardens are probably fine, but in us walking nearby, found a clear abuse of the horses in the domain... On the photo attached to a horse that had fallen... he put a time crazy a recover, he's there to languish, he can't breathe. lLe hay to feed them is rotten and not sheltered, so he gets all the fleet as soon as it rains... not shelters for them also in the meadow.

    We had not planned to visit the garden, having come to taste of the Vouvray, well took us to venture there. Beyond a garden very neat (congratulations to the 2 brave who care), the garden is amazing. Even more incredible is the sign at its entrance "feel, taste, pick", never seen that. So we ate tomatoes and black grapes "Pickle" which proved an unforgettable taste experience. We then had great pleasure to share with the master of the House, but we have not yet found of butterfly bewitching scents :-)

    Castle's visit for its garden and its niche in the Valley of the Cissé. A place full of humanity and peace of mind.

    Beautiful garden! some parts of the Park make think of gardens in Italy: it is very marked. Garden to him alone is worth the visit, and to the wire of the promenade there are a lot of very pleasant surprises. The owner is almost impossible to find plant collection: she practices exchanges of seeds with a large Conservatory of plants located in Russia. The young gardener has a remarkable knowledge of gardening.
