In the shadow of its neighbour Azay le Riddeau this chateau has lovely grounds flanked by a river and rowing boats can be hired. Lovely cafe area beside the old mill house. The Chateau is interesting in its own right and well worth a visit

This is a family home, feels very relaxed and personal. Better than Azzay. Do not drive or cycle past.

This is a lovely little chateau near Azay-le-Rideau that often gets overlooked, but it is definitely worth a stop. It was less crowded than the other well-known chateaux, so our walk around the grounds was very peaceful.

Visited the interiors and 1st floor. It's a tiny chateau. Nothing extravagant. It's good place to sit by the lake, look at the castle and have some drink. Beautiful and peaceful.
