The house is incredible! (Downton Abbey fans will love it!) The tour is nicely done, taking small groups through so you can see everything and ask questions. We went at Christmas time, so the house was beautifully decorated, but will return when they reopen in May to also see the gardens. The garage was impressive, as well. The rare vintage... More

Not only were the guides friendly and welcoming, they were a informative and knowledgable. For architects, designers, and engineers, you won't want to miss this one. Truly a man before his time. The gardens are impressive as well, but the house design is amazing.

We went on Christmas Eve 2013 for a holiday family outing. That place is gorgeous ! Newly renovated and furnished lavishly. The ceilings had amazing artwork and carpentry.

The holiday decorations... More

We have been to Nemours before, but not during the Christmas season. It is and always will be one of my top recommendations for out of towners to visit both during the regular and Holiday season. For locals, please visit, It's a beautiful home preserved in time.

My husband and I took out of town guests to the Nemours mansion during the holiday season. The tour was fabulous, interesting and we learned so much about the family. Tours are given in small groups and the knowledgable guides make you feel so welcome in the home. Visitors feel appreciated

We went here Christmas Eve for the noon tour with our teenagers and mother. We've lived in the area for over 10 years and never knew about this place. When you arrive at the visitors center you see a movie for 10 minutes before a van takes you to the home. The movie was a little boring and our teenagers... More
