“Romantic castle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

We went to the chateau for a guided visit, which takes place at 11.30am, 2.30pm, 3.30pm et 4.30pm. Opening times 10am-6pm.
There is a restaurant with a great view, but please make a reservation before.
They have a nice garden you can walk through, with shadow.
Good for hot summer time!
The beach is next door.

The story of the castle is very romantic!

“fascinating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Thanks to the guide, this visit allowed us an insight into the lives of two passionate artists. The gardens are only fair but the views across the bay are lovely and the chateau fabulous/

“Relaxing visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

The Chateau has a beautiful garden, especially in the spring, and the view of the port is lovely. For a 3 EUR ticket, you can spend relaxing moments in the garden and climb up the walls to the the sea. It's not a "must-see", but if you're around, take the chance, and after the visit, go around the wall on the outside and reach the beach Raque where you can take a bath in the sea.

PS. Photos and filming are for free and there are beautiful textures to take photos of (for those interested in such things).

“Nice walking and treasure hunt for children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2012

It is a lovely castle, with a very nice garden, ideal for children for a few hours to run around and find the "treasures". There are several art sculptures in the garden, also lots of information about Henry and Mary Clews. From the terras you can have a beautiful view over the sea, and if you are done with your walk in the garden, you can get easily to the beach. It was a great choice to visit this catle with children.

“Unique and extreemly interesting site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

Henrui Clews and his wife Marie restored an old castle begining of the 20th century and turned it into a unique site to visit. Both were artists with great sense of humor which you face every where you visit , rooms , gardens etc !!! A real unique sight to see !

A must for the French Cote D'Azur
