The exterior and the gardens are spectacular. Tour covers the time period from the 16th through 19th century and is very informative. Nice exhibit of portraits and art. It is definitely worth the trip. If choosing between the Benedictine Monastery and this, definitely choose this.

I did the guided tour with my family and everybody enjoyed it. The guide made it interesting, even for the kids. The gardens outside are amazing. They even have a labyrinth that the kids enjoyed. It's located very close to Cluny Abbey. I highly recommend it. The visit takes one hour for the castle and au least another hour for... More

The restauration of this castle is a project of two people apparently. They have restored it beautifully with a lot of care and attention for the details. Our guide was a French history student and she did a wonderful job. There was a part of the 16th century and of the 19th century. It was great to see the differences.... More

We drove by the chateau twice before we noticed it - could be signed posted a bit better! On paying 10 euro each what a sight to behold it was breath taking as you walked down the avenue of trees to the bridge over the moat. The guides were very good and knew their stuff. The gardens were a delight,... More

10€ buys you a guided tour of the chateau and free rein in the gardens, while 6€ will get you into the gardens alone. Guided tours last about an hour and are given by students who are enthusiastic and know their stuff. The chateau is still inhabited, but you get to see enough of the 17th and 19th century apartments... More

If you are on a 'chateau tour' in Burgundy this one should be on your list. It's beautiful inside and outside and gardens are quite lovely. Guided tours only! It seems they are all in French but they give you a booklet in English and will answer questions in English as well.

Visited here with friends, very nice chateau and gardens well worth a visit. Had a guided tour, tour guide only spoke French but did have English txt that you can read from. We was lucky as our friend speaks fluent French who translated as well

It's interesting to see how different cultures preserve and value their ancient and historical buildings. It wasn't quite to National Trust standards but it was very relaxed and the staff were helpful and chatted in english when some of the more technical language defeated us. If you're doing the tour there are booklets in different languages which were helpful. The... More

Visited Cormatin on our way from Cluny to Brancion and it's a good place to pass an hour or so. The gardens are lovely and there is a well-kept maze; there are a few rooms you can look at yourself but they are not historic and rather gloomy; with the guide you can visit the apartments from the time when...

This tiny estate had been bought and renovated by a team of three French art lovers. The story behind their survey and finally purchased this chateau is worth noting. However their effort and resources poured into renovating this chateau is even more amazing. Starting with the exterior of the chateau which look simple enough however the interior pack the beauty...
