the Chateau tour is only provided as guided with no audio option...prefer audio but our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and gave us plenty of time in each room including interesting background information all along the way. The level of craftsmanship in the wood carvings throughout the home well surpassed anything I have every seen in one place. Every room had intricately detailed, hand carved paneling, wainscoting, and, in many room, fireplace mantels with surrounds of Minton tiles. Lovely experience and make time to wander around the 12 acres of grounds. The exotic tree specimens are stunning and interesting to see.
