This privately owned castle has been in the same family for the last 600 years. Hence it is very well maintained and conserved. The castle has survived the Hundred Years' War, the religious wars and the French Revolution. This castle is unique in its sort....More

I really don’t get the “don’t bother” comment !? The only explanation would be : frustrated /cynical / never-happy / bored people. This castle is a wonder, outstanding from the outside as from the inside, which was very rich of furnitures, decor and baubles from...More
