Faded Glory
Jun 2019
Quite a walk to get to the Chateau from Vernon and no public transport but plenty of parking if you are driving. the grounds are lovely to walk around but sadly the ingenious water features and the system that feeds them are in a state of disrepair, without plans for renovation. The Chateau is beautiful, small and limited rooms open but the tour gives lots of information. I was one English speaking person in a group of french speakers but with only 6 in the group the guide was very attentive. I had an english transcript of the patter and in each room he asked specifically if I had any questions.

Neat restored chateau
Jul 2019 • Couples
Only the stables are original, the rest has been rebuilt , destroyed and rebuilt many times thru arious kings and nobles. Beautiful grounds and restorations. Must cost a ton to keep up and further restore. Worth a visit...

Little gem of a grand Chateau
Jul 2019 • Couples
We arrived by luck at the time of an English language tour, which covered the small part of the Chateau that is open and an overview of the gardens and stables. The gardens would have been very grand with huge stone fountains and water course structures still there but sadly not all working, and otherwise laid to grass, so I don’t think it’s worth going for the gardens alone even though that was our original plan. The large fountain and pool in the central courtyard was actually built and used as a swimming pool for the horses from the hugely grand stable block. There are no signs so you really wouldn’t know without the tour and the tour guide was excellent, so well worth it when it’s 5 euro for the gardens only or 9 euro for the tour and Chateau which took an hour. Most of the Chateau is still lived in by the family, so access is only by the tour guide unlocking and leading you around the central function rooms whilst giving the history of the place and people. Would highly recommend as an interesting contrast and rest from the near by always very busy Monet gardens at Giverny.

Beautiful but a little bit neglected gardens
Jul 2019 • Couples
We only visited the gardens of the chateau for €5 per person. Quiet and beautiful gardens. Some fountains do not work and are in bad shape. It is a pity. A lot of weed.

Very nice furnished Chateau with a large park

If you travel to Vernon, I think it's a MUST SEE.
OK, it's not Versailles, but so restful to escape busy cities.
They kept a lot of amazing furniture and cutlery, a wonderful clavecin too.

Very Interesting Tour
Jun 2019 • Family
On a whim I visited Chateau Bizy, located a few minutes from Giverny. €9/adult for house and garden/parking included/children free. €5/adult for garden only.

Though the 30-45 min. tour of the main rooms of the Chateau was in French, our guide gave us a very detailed booklet that described each room, as well as the most interesting history of the home and it’s owners. During the tour, our guide did give us a synopsis of each room in English and answered our questions.

We were free to roam the beautiful grounds.

This was a perfect way to spend the few free hours we had during our trip to Monet’s Gardens in Giverny

Wonderful visit

This is a private home and the periodic visits must be led by a guide. Our guide was very helpful, his knowledge of the Chateau and its history was excellent. The gardens are extensive. This must be on your list to visit

Don’t waste your time!
May 2019 • Couples
This visit was part of an Avalon cruise. Not at all Avalon quality. This run down chateau is open to tourists to provide the owners a tax break. The central part of the chateau is a rebuild; only the stables were original to Louis XV. Interior decorated with reproductions, electric lamps, and the owners’ collection of oil paintings and memorabilia loosely related to Napoleon. Quite the Napoleon fetish. Only one fountain spouted water. Not at all “magnificent water gardens.” Pathetic place; a terrible waste of time.

Formidable!!

We walked from our Viking River Cruise boat to here. Charming homes along the way, and we come to this incredible Chateau! We loved it and the person who gave the tour was very informative. I would highly recommend it...seeing a table that Napoleon gave the Duke as a gift and so many beautiful pieces of furniture. Beautiful tapestries, incredible stairway. You should go see it!

Enchanting Evening

We were on a Tauck tour and one night we came here for a special dinner and musical recital. The food was fabulous and the show was very pleasant but the real gem is the chateau and its 80 year old owner. Incredible
