Worth a couple of hours of your time if you're in the area. We enjoyed climbing up the keep, beautiful views from there. The gardens are nice and there are some nice interiors in the Chateau

We enjoyed our visit although the audio commentary was slightly spoiled by the loud drilling of workmen undertaking renovations. A little cafe would be nice for the end of the visit, though the shop and receptionist were very good. The translated audio commentary was great,...More
