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!

We had a great time there. Our guide was so nice and kind, she always tried to speak slowly in French to make sure that everybody understand everything. It was really interesting and memorable, we had so much fun. The wine tasting was a great experience and we learnt a lot as well. :) Thank you!
