I've visited the Chateau Abbadia as part of the social program of a scientific conference in the area. We were a group of around 70 people and split up in 3 tours through the castle. Unfortunately our tour guide only spoke French (well, this is not completely correct. She actually was able to speak the English language, just not a level she could provide a proper tour). You can, however, have a tour in another language (English, Spain, Bask as far as I got it) if you have a group of at least 5 people and register for it early enough. One of our French speaking colleague then had to provide a translation for the whole group, which in fact was quite of funny and made the people listen more attentive.
The castle itself is pretty interesting, because it's way more colofur (in the inside) than the standard European castle. There are many different influences, for example in the main hall, where the staircase is decorated by some pictures showing Ethiopian culture (the former owner of the castle lived there for more than 15 years).
You also have a fantastic look at the Atlantic Sea from the area of the castle. Photography is not allowed inside the castle, even without flashlight.
