“Excellent, worth spending more time...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Quite crowded at the entrance, but you get used to it after a couple of chateaux. The castle is very nice, you can tell that somebody actually lives there and takes care of the exhibits. The cafe in the Orangerie is very good and with decent prices.
In the back right corner of the gardens there is another plus: the cart/boat trip. It's only like 30min, but you will see areas that cannot be visited otherwise.
Assign a whole morning for this one, it's worth it, and there are some good restaurants when you go out (50m from the exit, in the small town square).

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Very well suited and arranged as if they were living inside. If you go early you'll see the hunting dogs and the castle won't be full of people. Do you know this is the castle that was used by Herge to crate the castle of Tintin?

“My favourite chateau in the whole Loire valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

It is superbly run, historically interesting, scenically beautiful and has the comfortable feel of a lived - in home.

“A beautiful setting and worth a visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Here you can visit the chateau, the hunting hounds (most interesting), the tintin expedition, the vegetable gardens and take a boat trip and buggy trip. The tintin expedition is also interesting. I do think the admission is a bit steep and I was frustrated by the amount of visitors who crept through without paying which made me very angry. This needs to be monitored more effectively-many of the visits also need to purchased as extras.
