This is a private castle on the edge of Montpellier. The indoor staircase was interesting. The park is okay but not a must-go.

Dear Visitor, While we are thankful for your kind comment about our staircase (which indeed, is very impressive!), we are sorry to read that you did not enjoy the park. However, may I point out that when automn is approaching, the park may be less enjoyable than during the spring season. We would therefore be more than welcome to see... More

A beautiful chateau with a wonderful and relaxing garden. The main asset is the Count himself, a very nice and friendly person, from whom you can learn a lot. Also the rest of the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Many thanx especially to Magdalena. Really worth visiting!
