Last week I was in the Chateau with a group of Flemish visitors.
I was not expecting to see such a rich decorated castle, as the outside is very austere.
The guide Anne Marie explained the history with dedication and knowledge.
Also the last room (belongings Napoleon in St Helena) makes the whole visit very interesting.
The entire regio merrits a visit.

In the middle of the country, this is not Versailles but a very interesting French rural castle!!! Not far from the motorway you can easily have a short break there!!!

This is an impressive chateau in private ownership. As it is well off the main tourist track it is permanently open only in July and August with visits during other months with advanced notice.

This is not as restrictive as it sounds. One is encouraged to telephone to make an appointment to view but we turned up unannounced at 2.50 pm on a weekday in May and joined a pre-arranged tour starting at 3.00 pm. We met the 2.00 pm group as they came out and there was another one waiting to enter at 4.00pm. The groups were small – ours was just 8 people – so one gets a very personal tour out of season with plenty of opportunity to question the guide.

The interior décor and furniture reflect the 17th and 18th centuries. Interestingly, in the 18th century the Chateau was described as the “Versailles du Gévaudan”, which is the name of the local area.

Most of the gardens have, understandably, been put over to grass as there is simply not the income to maintain a staff of gardeners. (In fact on our arrival we met the owner cutting the grass on a sit-on lawnmower.) The terrace walls still exist and one can make out how the front gardens would have been laid out.

An interesting option for those looking for a spectacular chateau to visit in the area.
