Owner/guide gives an informative and amusing presentation of the history of the castle and the powers in the area throughout history BUT only in French although he speaks fluent English.

We've been here, on the way to Paris. Th e castle has a nice structure and 4-5 rooms are renewed. Compared to the tour the price for a family is quite high. The guide is in French.

We found this lovely place as we were staying for two days in a gite d'hote nearby, the visit from the Comte Philippe de Chastellux is very interesting and a lot of fun! We absolutely recommend to visit this place.

This magnificent chateau, in the Morvan Forrest has been in the same family for 100's of years. The host gives a tour- make sure you schedule to be there for it- it is in french but there are English printed guides where you can follow along. The castle is magnificent and his family's dedication to restoring it and keeping it... More
