Well worth the visit, this amazing place and the beautiful gardens is somewhere I would love to live!!! Imagining those who lived here during it's time was so easy as everything has been maintained to period. Spectacular and most memorable.

Most French chateau do not have a lot to show, largely because the French were fortunate enough to have a revolution! However this place has enough to hold the interest as well as lovely gardens overlooking the vezeres.

First problem: it only opens at 12:00. Second problem: admission to the chateau is only as part of a guided tour. Third problem: is that the guided tour is only in French. Our guided made no attempt whatsoever to assist the non French speakers in...More
