We came fairly late in the afternoon, so only a cheaper, garden tour with few rooms was possible. And that was great. The castle itself saw better days and it was upsetting to see a mish-mash collection of randomly collected paintings at its wall. Almost...More

The visit to the chateau is by guided tour which really adds to the visit. Although it is in French there is an excellent handout in English which is much more comprehensive that those you usually get. The chateau is fully furnished and decorated in...More

Nice rooms from 14th to 19th century. The labyrinth garden is wonderful and the lady guide is very interesting.
