Great chance as the guide and visit were top! The history of the castle is very interesting as it mixes medieval history and renaissance with the more contemporary history of the various owners of the Castle and, ultimately, of the family owner 4 generations Carvallo. The French gardens are just a wonder for the eyes. Great staff. Not crowded and very good value for money: €35 for 2 adults and two rates reduced for the Castle and the gardens and free guided tour (but tip merit!). So to do.

Most amazing château with garden I have ever seen. Extremely beautiful, a definite must-see.

Excellent day out. The car parks are extensive and have picnic tables. The château and gardens are good value for money and you could spend the whole day in the gardens. The château is fascinating, and there is plenty of information in both français and English. Of you have money to burn at the end of your visit then the magasin du jardin has much better stuff than the obligatory "you can't get to the exit without going through the shop" shop. A good day out. Recommend.
