A really lovely chateau that was a fun stop on the trip. It's smaller than some of the more popular chateaux but well kept and you can see quite a bit of the property. I loved seeing family pictures set out and to get a feel of their lives. The gardens are, of course, the best and are worth a stop just for that alone. There's a room in there upstairs that is a gallery of photos of the grounds and gardeners that is really lovely. The family art collection is on display and while there isn't anything in there I liked, it certainly was interesting!
What an amazing garden! I’m not sure I ever went to Versailles, but I sure saw a lot of castles, and this is more like a palace (on my definition of castle 😅, well on what I’m used to in Portugal and UK) but it is lovely! I had a great time seeing the castle and strolling through the garden. I didn’t get an audio guide but I listened a bit to the French tour, and even though I can’t speak French, I understood enough to say, if you get on time of a tour, take it ☺️. The tour is only on the castle, but the guide was funny and you could she she loved her job ☺️ This place is really worth a visit, and I need more vacation days to see all the castles 🥰
This chateau has one of the most beautiful and pleasant smelling gardens in Loire Valley! It's well kept and super organized how they rotate the vegetations each season! I also like that there are explanations for everything in French and English. You can buy tickets just to visit the garden itself. The chateau is ok but u can climb to the roof top to get an aerial view of the garden and there are some interesting private art collections by the owner. Good place to bring kids. They would enjoy the maze.
Can highly recommand this beautiful and very typical castle for french styled gardens. I had the audiguide which explained and helped a lot. The visit should take 3-4 hours to see enough and relax also. Hard to imagine that sometimes the owner live here. Interesting is the huge vegetable garden in french style. And I liked also the herbs garden with the good smell of all the different plants. Parking is free and they have plenty spaces even for caravans.
One of the best places that I have visited so far. Beautiful and full of history, with well explained book guides. A detailed description of how the gardens are kept. Just perfect.
