Useful leaflet in English and fantastic guided tour. The gardens could do with some more loving care and we really needed a drink and snack but none to be had here.

This lovely Chateau is open on a Sunday and is a great place to visit. We were luckily enough to have a very small group so tour in French and English, they also supply a folder in English with lots of info to borrow.
