On TripAdvisor it's open but in reality it is closed. Winter times are 2pm to 4pm. Bad information equals a wasted trip.

We visited while driving through and walked around the grounds. It was raining a bit but we still had a nice time and would recommend as a stop to anybody who enjoys seeing the chateaus in the area.

A great guided tour (albeit entirely in French) of a great chateau. The kitchen and the subterranean aqueduct are worthy--as is the estate's wine tasting at the conclusion of the tour.

The chateau is huge and the family still lives there so part of the chateau is on exposure. One needs to understand feench as the tour guide was french speaking only. There are some information cards in other languages. Enjoyed most the nicely kept grounds.

Nice visit, stunning building and artifacts. Our French guide chose not to speak any English unless asked a question even though he could and 75% of the group were English speaking, i.e. Dutch and British. Nice picnic area in the gardens or the car parks.
