“Definitely it's worth the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2010

I went to visit this castle after reading a touristic leaflet during my stay in the area. I won't deny: the ticket is expensive (9 euros full price) with respect to other places nearby; however, after my visit I can say it's without doubt worth the price.

The guided visit inside (about one hour) is generally in French (visits in other languages are available only if there is a sufficient number of people), but very detailed brochures in several languages (English, Spanish, Italian...) are available. The castle is very well maintained, with magnificent decorations and furniture that recalled me a bit the much more famous Versailles. The visit explains the origins of the castle and the use of each room across time.

Ended the visit inside the castle, you can freely walk across the huge, beautiful park, with fountains, a pool, a labyrinth and a small tower on which you can observe the landscape.

In conclusion, I strongly suggest you to give this castle a try if you are in the area. I didn't regret about it!

“Beautiful chateau, better than most in the Loire Valley, worth a detour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2010

Having visited all of the castles in the Loire Valley and many elsewhere in France too, I can say without hesitation that the Chateau de Cormatin is one of the finest. To visit the furnished apartments, you have to take a guided tour, but it is worth it. I speak French, so I went on the French version, but for groups on reservation apparently they offer tours in either German or English. For non-French speakers on the French tour, they offer a printed handout which is pretty good. The gardens are gorgeous in any season, and can be visited on their own. I particularly enjoy them in the autumn, when the vegetable garden is full of pumpkins, etc. but they are also beautiful in the spring and summer with all the flowers. If you're in the area, this is definitely a don't miss!!
