Thank god for the National Trust. Only the French would close such an attraction on a weekend in July. Can't say any more looked nice Fromm the outside.

I'm sorry about your disappointment. The castle was exceptionally closed the weekend of July 17th because of an important ceremony: the delivery of the medal " Just among Nations "at the Virieu family.
