We went out of our way to visit this chateau in May 2012 and were very disappointed. Many people were gathered in the courtyard when we arrived (after paying an entrance fee) and after about 10 minutes an officious woman who turned out to be...More

Je ne me lasse jamais de visiter ces châteaux privés, malgré les restrictions (visite guidée, aucune photo, etc.). Ces châtelains du monde d'aujourd'hui y consacrent amour, temps et argent pour nous faire revivre notre histoire (oui, je suis canadien, mais de souche française en 1655)....More
