This is what you would expect of a French castle, just the feeling of walking around a site that is hundreds of years old. A lot of walking up and down stairs but worth it.

We tried to get in and want to know how to deal with a wheelchair and what accessibility ist given. No chance to get any valid information.

The chateau is well worth the visit. We had visited this chateau many years ago and looked forward to this one. The improvements to the visitor experience are fantastic. Audio guides animations in many rooms in the towers. Well worth the 8.50 ticket.

We spent a lovely afternoon here exploring the castle and the town. Definitely one of the best castles we have seen, lots of information for adults and kids alike. Well worth a visit and the picturesque surrounding town is worth the walk around also.

Visited while we were on holiday. Very impressed with the Fort, set in a historic town. A little expensive for what you see, but there is free English commentary available. Not much for young children to do

Wouldn't be surprised if dogs were not allowed but best check on the w/site. The French are getting very strict about not letting them in to public places these days.
