Interesting chateau, but the €7 tour doesn't get into the main house, just the kitchen and side chapels which is very disappointing.

Thank you so much for you comment Nicki. We are glad that you enjoyed the tour ! We added a new area to the visit: two chapels from the XI and XII centuries. Come check it out !

The owner of the wine cave in Verteuil gives you a solid hour for 6 euros. Fans of La Rochefoucauld's maxims are in for a treat. And the La Rochefoucauld family are still in residence. So much for the revolution.

it'll cost you 6 euros for an hour and a quarter of walking around unimpressive lawns, one basement kitchen, and a chapel. No other inside viewing of the chateau which is privately occupied and they don't want visitors, only their money. On our visit there...More

Hi Nelson, I am sorry that you didn't like your visit. For your information the owners received only 2 euros on 6 so this is not a real help to maintain such a big place. This is a historical castle so for 6 euros, i...More

The chateau is only available to visit at 3 pm each day and only accessible as part of a tour. You visit the gardens, the kitchen, the chapel and the inner courtyard, and that's it. There is nothing special to see. The guide speaks excellent...More
