Beautiful chataeau

We only sighted the chateau from the boat (tour of Lac Annecy). We didn't go inside. It is a very impressive Chateau in an incredibly picturesque setting.

The drive to the Chateau was beautiful. The view of the Chateau from a far is very impressive. We visited the Chateau grounds after seeing the gorge. The Chateau was closed but the gardens were open (for free) and we walked around the outside of the Chateau and looked over the countryside from the gardens. Seeing the outside of the... More

Spend time doing something else and don't go there! My friend and I were visiting Annecy and went to the Gorge de Fier and the Chateau. The Gorge was great but when we arrived at the Chateau for the tour, the woman behind the counter at the entrance (gift shop) was on the phone for 17 minutes (we counted). We... More

The french don't want the world to know about it....There is no desire to accommodate non-french speakers. They hand you this binder with a few words in english for each room, while the old geezer guide tells you this will not be very interesting for you, then talks a lot and makes jokes for the french audience. It makes you... More

Oh my goodness. What to do on a rainy day near Annecy? Well, unless you are a fluent French speaker and DON'T have children with you, give this Chateau a miss. There is an amazing collection of artefacts from all over the world, but the extremely limited info available in English and the cramped displays do not do it justice.... More

The place is perfect but the excursion is not accompanied by English translation. The number of visiting rooms is very limited so you have to rely on your fantasy.

We arrived right at 2 pm (opening time) and were just in time for a guided tour...en francais. It would have been great if we spoke French. The booklet they gave us to follow along wasn't nearly as detailed as I would have liked. The woman giving the tour liked to talk, and it was a bit awkward because we... More

After visiting the Gorges du Fier and have a nice lunch at the little restaurant close to the castle we decided to visit this one and we really enjoyed it. It's very well preserved and maintained (it's private) and the visit which lasts 1.5 hour takes you trough different rooms showing great collections of the late owner (the place belongs... More
