The Chateau is 15th century, and unusually, constructed of brick rather than stone. It is isolated in the forest, and one must walk a couple of hundred yards from the car park. We had time to kill, because one can only enter the castle on...More

A very interesting privately owned Chateau slightly off the beaten track. Still has a lived in look and the guided tour in English was very clear and comprehensive. Shaded parking and picnic area near the entrance.
