“Much more interesting than we expected”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Although not a very large site, the buildings themselves are very interesting and well presented, with several explanatory videos.
There is a section devoted to the oil-exploration business of the family associated with the chateau, and this was extremely good.
The young lady at the ticket desk/ shop was absolutely charming.

“A highlight of our trip to Normandy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013

This middle ages castle complete with a moat is surrounded by half-timbered farm buildings. In one of them, there is a fascinating film that describes in detail how these buildings were built and/or restored. There are various displays and a large collection of equipment and information about the Schlumberger brothers who revolutionized the petroleum industry with their revolutionary petroleum exploration techniques.

It was wet and freezing when we were there, but we still enjoyed it greatly and were there about 3 hours - without much outdoor exploration. The audio guide was easy to use and helpful but did cost 2Euros extra. There was no food available when we were there.
