“Third visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Limited in this area on things to do on cloudy days when you have the grandchildren along. So third visit to the Chateau. 41 Euros entrance for 2 adults and 2 children. Once inside the main attraction is a Pirate Trail. The children follow a trail working out clues along the way. This is our first visit during the main holiday season and would not go again at this time of year. It was very busy with up to 10/12 families at each clue. This meant quite long waits and hearing someone shout the answer before trying it out ourselves. If we had been early it may have been better but as the afternoon wore on it got worse. However it is entertaining for the children (6 & 9 year olds). We all had an Ice Cream at the end but these were 50% again on the prices in the towns and drinks pricey too so bring your own drinks and a picnic as nice grounds to relax in.
Would recommend to visit out of season or early in the day but if not be prepared to meet all the other families in this area looking to entertain the children.

Thank you for your opinion.
During the "Fête des Pirates", the days very festive and appreciated by more and more persons, it is effectively necessary to centre its visit on the festivities. And take advantage of the end of day on trails.
Our price lists consumptions are more raised than in town and in the street but answer a price practised generally on all the important touristic sites.
You can nevertheless bring your own drinks and picnic, numerous tables are at your disposal.
With pleasure to see again you for the fourth visit? Many novelties planned for the next year and the following ones.
Best Regards,

“Excellent day out for kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Had a great day, the pirate trail was so well thought out and at every turn we were in awe of how well it had been brought together. Take a picnic as the queue for the food was quite long! you can go back out to your car to get it! If only some of the other stately houses could take on this idea of entertaining the kids in such a complete way! Well done!!

“bring a picnic,good for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

This is a good attraction. Our four year old was engaged throughout on both the pirate trail and an excellent discover the World attraction (best for under 7s). We advise that you bring a picnic. The Chateau itself is nothing special, the gardens are excellent.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Excellent way to get exercise and have fun at the same time. The pirates trail is really good fun and the kids were very keen to solve the clues. We could have returned to do some of the other trails but the weather was too hot !!!

“Pirate Hunting in the rain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Back to basics, really well thought out, multi stage treasure hunt around the grounds of the Chateau. Despite the rain, it kept two highly energetic 4 year old boys entertained for a few hours and almost wore them out.

Would be great to visit again, in better weather, have a picnic and enjoy the separate Dinosaur trail.
