18th century countryside residence in scenic location. Lovely rooms, orangery with miniature furniture collection, large collection of pet-carriers, and wonderful gardens with lots of features, such as the “Surprise” water gardens, the mazes, and the shell grotto.

There are not many rooms but each one is filled with interest. There are some wonderful automatons. One in particular captivated me. It was an artist painting a portrait of a lady. Next to the model was a painting of the lady, very clever.

Really surprised by this place. The chateau is bijou by comparison to one's in the Loire, but the miniature museum is really interesting and the marionettes in the rooms are fun. The garden was the real treat, the water features surprise you as you never...More
