The building was beautiful (and mostly intact), but interior had only a few interesting but miscellaneous pieces as part of a museum collection. The grounds are lovely, but there are no longer formal gardens. There was, however, a wonderful creperie/resto about half a km down the road past the chateau. Enjoy!

The grounds of the chateau are vast, and inside the walls the history is presented in both French and English. Bring your walking gear (or bike) if you want to tour the area outside the walled chateau. There is a chance to have a coffee at the shop inside the courtyard.

Louis XIII called it one of the most beautiful chateaus in his kingdom. Even though it was ransacked during the French Revolution, you can still see what made him feel this way. The reality is that this once beautiful estate was vandalized and all but destroyed during the Revolution. But, its original beauty is still evident, and that beauty, and... More

We went here on a rainy morning, not really expecting a lot but were pleasantly surprised. It is certainly is not the biggest or most impressive castle we have ever visited but the interior is well done - although not original - and the displays are interesting and in French and good English.(Most of the places we've seen here don't...

This chateau is definitely worth a visit! Although it isn't huge and a lot of the original furnishings have been destroyed or removed throughout history (as have parts of the chateau) what's there has been carefully restored and is well presented to inform and interest a visitor. We visited with our children (a 7 year old and an 11 year... More

You have to see the incredibly enormous rabbit made entirely of rabbit skins! I didn't know whether to be amazed or shocked - you decide. Apart from this, the centre-piece for the hunting galleries, the rest of the Chateau contained much to educate and enlighten the visitor about its tumultuous and varied history. There are audio visual presentations that are... More

Getting in is a mission, but once we found the entrance it's a great place to spend time. The setting is beautiful and it's very interesting. Just not sure of the weirdo exhibition (giant white rabbit while funny, the stuffed fox and deer was just creepy). My 4 year old loved the castle and enjoyed exploring it.

We visited on a rainy day with small children and it kept them amused for an hour or so running up and down steps and looking out of arrow holes. Inside there are a few bits of furniture, some audiovisual presentations and some large and slightly creepy modern art installations.

I love visiting churches, cathedrals and country houses. After reading the reviews for this old French Country House we nearly didn't go. The weather was indifferent and it was the day before we came home...we were based close by...so we went anyway. We were prepared to be disappointed... We arrived to a big, almost empty, car park. We made our... More
