We loved this chateau. We arrived early and had to wait until they opened but that gave us a chance to walk through the gardens which are beautiful. Unlike other castles we visited, this one had a guide who accompanied us all from room to...More

A very interesting privately owned Chateau slightly off the beaten track. Still has a lived in look and the guided tour in English was very clear and comprehensive. Shaded parking and picnic area near the entrance.
