There is so much potential here - a nice home and gardens but not a tourist attraction. We acknowledge it is architecturally pretty. A major drawback for non-French speaking visitors is that they are unable to tour the house independently. The guide on our visit spoke entirely in French and was unhelpful.

Saw a magnificent sound and light show during our recent holiday, just on for 3 nights this time, but would recommend looking out for similar experiences if you are in the area

This is a very sweet little country noble's chateaux. 18€ for 2 adults and 2 kids to get in when we went in August. You can only go inside house itself as part of a tour and the tour was only in French, although we were given guidance notes in English. However I'm afraid my French is not up to... More

Visited the song and light shown at the chateau last year and although the light show was excellent it started much later than advertised with almost two hours of really bad singing before the actual light show began. It was a cold night and there was very little consideration for the needs of the audience which included many small children.... More

A beautiful Chateaux. The tour was ok and I with very limited french could pick out what was being said. The young tour guide was open to answering questions in English also. Buildings and gardens very nice to stroke around and very relaxed.

We visited as a family one rainy afternoon following a recommendation. We received an information leaflet in English, but it was not at all suitable for young children. The tour was conducted in French and there was a lot of information to try and retain even if able to understand the language. Our children were bored within 5 minutes as... More

We visited on the 1st June and had a leisurely stroll around the gardens which were supposed to be magnificent but in fact were very disappointing. It is very clear that there are not enough staff to tend the gardens as everywhere looked very untidy. The formal garden at the rear of the chateau is famous for its roses but... More

Beautiful medieval house much altered and added on to. The gardens and moat are beautiful in good weather and make sure you ask the guide about the second world war story.

We recently visited with our nearly 3 yr old and 15mth old. We felt delighted when we turned up at this chateau just prior to the 2pm opening time. It looked like a true fairy tale castle and we sat in the vast grassy car park enjoying a leisurely picnic by the river with lovely views . However, on entering... More
