Located high above the river with great views this chateau is splendidly picturesque and is surrounded by a most interesting garden that explains much about medieval use and attitudes towards plants, for medicine, for perfume, as an adjunct to food and preserving. Staff here interpret it extremely well and all together it makes a great visit.

We visited the chateau in early October and it was deserted. It was a beautiful building and the gardens were interesting as they were on varying levels. There was a magnificent viewpoint over the river valley below. It is free to look around the grounds and 5 euros to go into the chateau, although it was closed when we were... More

Was really looking forward to this visit but have to say was a little disappointed. Very impressive visually but the grounds (although plenty of it) was a little on the boring side. Views however were amazing and we did get some beautiful photographs.

We spent and hour and a half walking through this amazing estate. Saw people having a picnic and relaxing. We didn't go in the Chateau because it was closed while we were there but the beautiful gardens and landscaping made it fabulous.

On a cloudy, sporadically rainy late summer day, this was a fabulous place to revive the spirits. Plenty of space to park. The grounds provide a huge variety of vistas and enclaves with lots of different features from woodland paths, river views to walled gardens. You can also wander and explore down by the river and beyond, sometimes in the... More

Every weekend during the summer there are 'spectacles' put on for free. Always something new to see. Sometimes music, art installations, poetry, singing, contemporary dance. The gardens stretch down to the river Trieux, be prepared for a steep walk back! Beautiful chateau, small entrance fee. Cafe serving hot food and drinks. Views across the river from vantage points. The parking... More

This was a real gem. Our guide book hardly mentioned it even though a photo of it was used to advertise the cotes d'amour. Stunning chateau, and the gardens were great also (and free). It cost us €5 each to look around the chateau, well worth it, and there happened to be an exhibition on by local artist Yvon Le... More

This is a marvellous park open to the public at no cost; the castle is beautiful and very cheap to visit, with expert guided tours throughout the day. The gardens are open 365 days a year. We went at the end of May and the gardens and park were lush and verdant. The herb garden is particularly interesting with its... More

We visited in April, although the Chateau was closed we were able to take our time and explore the beautiful and extensive gardens. Lots of gorgeous trees and shrubs, herbs and sculptures. Parking and gardens completely free. Do not miss the views over the river and walk down to the tiny "Port". Had a nice afternoon tea sitting in the... More

My wife and I decided to go and have a look on a whim not wanting to drive far that day. When we arrived there were heavy showers, so we waited inside our car for them to pass. We walked down to the chateau but alas it was closed, so we walked around the beautiful gardens which are free. It... More
