“Very good”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

Nice....just don't get behind a group....or step over the ropes, the rooms ARE alarmed. Take the guided tour if you can - you can actually ENTER all the rooms as opposed to only three then just peering over a thick rope for the rest, and it only costs 1E more. When we arrived a tour had already started (French only) so we couldn't join them, but it was then awkward as they were always in front of us en masse. We were provided with English language self tour information. I stepped over a rope for a closer look at one of the bedrooms and the entire castle alarmed so don't do this; they were very kind about the incident and didn't make us leave. I think the 6.60 Euro admission is alright.

“Must see facinating tour”
Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

The tour is facinating anf te castle is beautifull. Well worth the effort. The onlt downside is you get the impression that there us quite a lot of the castle you din't get to see. Deffinitely recommended though on a rainy sunday afternoon!

“What a setting - well worth a visit!!”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

It's a real treat to meander freely throughout the inside and grounds of the Chateau and wonder what it must have been like to live there
