This place is well worth a visit. if you would like to see how people lived long ago beautifully preserved and cared for by the current owners take a few hours and indulge yourselves. The owners have devoted a lifetime to a very special home.

I overnight there just one night with my parents. The palace is awesome, the surroundings, gardens, the building, the ball rooms. We slept on the SUITE WEDGEWOOD. Fantastic! it was like being transported to XIX century! Breakfast was great and we had a great after diner conversation with the owner, they offered us home made wine. Simple Marvelous!

Worth every penny and strongly recommended.

Stayed at the Palais Briau in late August. The chateau has been meticulously renovated by the owners, who are extremely welcoming and a great source of information on the area.
