“Beautiful castle and surroundings,”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2013

I was there with 2 little girls (6,8 years old )and they loved it ! they asked the tourguide a lot of questions about the lady who according to the myth was killed and buried in the castle. So we did not get to see the whole castle but it was stlll a worthwhile tour.perfect with young children since it is not too long ! The guide was really good . It looks very romantic.

“Would have liked to see more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2012

The chateau was a beautiful building however it is currently used as a guest house and the owners live there so the tour can only take you through a very small portion of the chateau.

On the day we went it was quite warm and there was a large group there for the tour. This made standing in the rooms quite hot. Some of the explanations given were quite long and I would have prefered to wander through at my own pace.

The chateau has a fascinating history and we were given a handout in English to inform us about each room.

Also a trip back to history; worthwhile to visit. The young tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all the questions.
