This is a beautiful chateau. Its very diwn to earth with sensible pricing for the tour and gardens (€8) and ice creams.
The tour was in French but with a very good English handout to follow. We'd recommend the tour as the gardens at €2.50 wouldn't represent such good value.
(You can't take photos indoors). When we visited it opened at 2pm.

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.

Only 4 points: there could be a little more action and interactive content. And a little restaurant. All the rest is perfect. Missed a ghost, but it was day time.
