We found this chateau very interesting. We were given a written guide which was helpful. There are quite a lot of steps inside so not suitable for disabled. The gardens were truely magnificent and huge so be prepared for a good walk. A little disappointed that there was nobody inside to speak to so you are just left to your own devices but it didn’t spoil our visit. On a sunny day, take a picnic as the sceneries stunning.

We went as a family as it is only 25 minutes away from home. They had lots of local producers and businesses, followed by a firework display, which was excellent. The chateau itself is lovely. My only complaint is that the toilet facilities were terrible.

We loved this gorgeous chateau and really enjoyed wandering around by ourselves through history. Really enjoyed the book binding exhibit and the dinner party in the dining room! We learned that Coco Chanel had visited the aristos (related to the Czar) who lived there. We loved the baking class for kids (ours were ages 4 to 9)- in French and perfectly easy to follow and enjoyed the caramel making demo. Enjoyed the grounds including the sculpture of the Man in the Iron Mask and LOVED the gorgeous chickens hanging out on the lawn. Magnifique!

We visited this castle since we were in the Normadie region. From the website, the Château looks absolutely breath taking....but really isn't once you stand in front of it.

Sadly, there is no funding to maintain this castle from falling apart.
It is not worth the money we paid to visit the Château but on the other it seems to be the only funding they have.
It is sad to see this piece of history fade away from lack of funding.

Arrived at the Chateau at about 1 and had a little walk in the Gardens before having a picnic overlooking the Chateau and its moat. It was nice to be able to look around the chateau in your own time and not be on a guided tour and there was lots to see in the chateau.

The highlight of the day for my two girls were the free caramel making session where you had some tastings which only disappointing thing was that it was just in French and the girl spoke very quickly so was a bit hard to understand. Also at 3.30 pm there was a Children's cooking session where for 1 Euro the girls could bake a cake which was a great opportunity for them to do. Again it was dome by the same lady but this time she explained a bit in English to my girls so they could understand exactly what to do but they were also watching what the other Children did so had no problems and about 30 mins later we had two nice cakes we could take away and enjoyed eating.

Stopped here for a break in our journey & the curiosity of seeing a Chateau. What a stunning place, very well maintained. We did a ‘self tour’ of both the gardens & the Chateau using the full guide provided at reception. Beautiful grounds ( perfect for picnics) & a very interesting insight into life & history in the Chateau. We spent a very pleasant 2 & 1/2 hours here. There is a pleasant gift shop selling gifts & local preserves etc, they also had ice cream. Clean toilets & there was an option for tea & coffee. A very reasonably priced attraction.

This chateau offers plenty of options for historians, book lovers, and nature lovers...

I fell in love (seriously) with the library... but also enjoyed walking through the trees in the vast parc and woodland outside the building.

Upon arrival, when you buy your tickets, you will be given a very informative guide, including all the background to this building which was destroyed and rebuilt. It is a beautiful building per se, but the history is fascinating! The historic kitchens (where my 13 year old grandson had fun playing with the 'antique' tools - some of which, I regret to say, I recall using in my youth) include, at certain hours, a cooking demonstration by a lady in historical dress, cooking up apple caramel. I didn't indulge, but everyone else did, agreeing that it was 'the best'!

In the building one finds the library, where I would be more than happy to spend the rest of my life, and several rooms dedicated to the history of book binding. Some of the books shown are spectacular! My brother is a book collector and it was hard to drag him away.

On the side of the current chateau is what is left of the original 'ice room', encased in a mount of everygreen shrubs. Walking up to the top is a bit of a challenge for those of us who aren't athletic, but so worth it!

The owners set up all types of activities for youngsters. When we visited several groups of pre-school children were walking around to pick up clues for a 'treasure' hunt. The clues, which we unearthed despite not being on the hunt, were linked both to general knowledge (i.e. de-cyphering code) and to the sites and history of the chateau, My sister-in-law and brother have decided to bring the grandchildren to the chateau to follow the treasure hunting trail (they are 10 and 7 years old).

Bottom line, the chateau is well worth the visit, no matter your age or interest!

Wish we had more time at the Chateau. It was lovely, with lots of rooms re-created in the day. Plus a "how you make caramel" demonstration in the kitchen. The grounds were lovely to stroll around as well. It was also not really busy. Had a great experience.

A magical chateau. It was peaceful when we visited and we could wander all around with a feeling of having stepped back in time. The lunch of quiche was lovely, although the coffee was dreadful and served in a thin plastic disposable water glass. An odd contrast with the wooden cutlery and food served in a wicker tray. The house is well worth visiting and the gardens are beautiful. Highly recommended, buy lunch, but take a flask of coffee with you!
