The all team of château Le Rocher Portail is very happy you spent a very nice evening. Guides and volunteers tried their best to make such event so special. All dressed as knights, duchess, guardians and mades.

We had a very interesting guided tour of this grand 16th century Chateau furnished with original tapestries and furniture, some of which came from Versailles. At the end of the visit we had a lovely cup of tea in the tea rooms
