“Great tour!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2014

This Chateau is just down the road from my friends' place, so it was an obvious place to visit. It's not as grand as most of the more famous chateaus (ie Chambord and Chenonceau etc), but what really made it was the tour. The English speaking guide was great, and there's some really interesting history to the place. It feels much more 'lived in' than some of the others, which I thought gives the chateau an extra charm. Definitely recommended!

“A Renaissance chateau...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2013

A lovely example of Renaissance chateau built in 15th century on the foundations of a medieval fortress. Owned by the Brie Family, it changed hands many times. Antoine Walsh, a ship owner, bought the estate in 1749, redecorated the chateau and added English gardens.
Than in 1830, Valentine Walsh married the Duke de la Tremoille and since then the chateau stayed in the Tremoille Family.
The chateau is notable for the library and it's 12,000 books. Also, for the collection of furniture and objects d'Art it is one of the best furnished chateaux in the Loire valley.

“Grand Historic Chateau Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

Wow! What a house! It was amazing to imagine that people lived in home such as this! Current family still owns and lives in part of the house. I took the tour in French, but was able to understand what was being said by following along in the translated English brochure. so worth visiting. just exquisite!

“Check the opening times.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

A very good example of a French Chateau and well worth a visit, but check the opening times, we had differing information. The guided tour was in French but the English booklet provided made it easy to follow.
