I have to start by saying our guide Pierre was excellent. He was not only full of information and willing and able to answer all our questions but his passion was contagious. I wish him all the best in his future career in history and tourism and safe travels as he comes to England to study next year. We visited on a very hot day in the height of the COVID 19 crisis and so were the first english visitors for some time. I was a bit surprised how much emphasis was put on the visit of Queen Elizabeth II visit to the chateau as her visit was back in 1967. However the rooms that are available for viewing are well furnished with appropriate furniture and art to tell the story of the chateau and its occupants over the years. In effect you visit about four main rooms but in addition there is the chapel, the stable yard and small hunting lodge. The gardens are also good for a stroll and are formal with lots of box hedging, a moat and large terracing. Inside the house you will feel like you are in Downton Abbey and in the gardens a Jane Austen novel. Pierre you were the star becasue you broguht the history alive with the help of the formidable property, thank you.

We visit this area of France regularly but we have never been here. We did visit it once before but it was shut! This time we were able to drive up the drive and waited outside until it was due to open at 2pm. At the opening time I duly went to the front door to see the 'fermé' sign. Not to be deterred I had a wander round for 5 minutes and returned to the front door to find the 'ouvert' sign and the door locked! Reading other reviews this is not uncommon. However, there is a sign underneath which tells you to push the bell on the left. This needs to be pushed hard and a few minutes later a man arrived and welcomed us in. From then on things improved dramatically. We got a guided tour (just the two of us) around a most interesting and beautiful chateau. The guide speaks french with a smattering of english but he spoke slowly and we understood most of what he said (we have some french although by no means fluent). Outside he took us to the family chapel and showed us to the small formal garden. The chateau is still lived in and is in a beautiful location with extensive woodland around it. It is well worth a visit but watch for opening times and push that bell!!!!!

We visited on a Friday afternoon and saw a coach and a few cars in the car park. We then walked up to the main reception to see a nice clear 'ouvert' sign on the front door to find the door locked. I peered through the door to see what looked like a tour guide showing a party around - she looked at me and turned and carried on with the tour. Lovely looking chateau but didn't get the chance to see the inside! No signage referring to tour times, prices or anything, guess we must be too English and too used to national trust type of attractions!?

Even the approach to this chateau is satisfying, it sits on an outcrop high above its splendid formal garden. The best view is from the windows of the chateau itself though walking down into the garden itself is a pleasure. Inside the chateau is not the most exciting of visits though it boasts a fine library at one end. The chapel too is dull. But the garden is a delight to walk around offering attractive views out into the surrounding countryside and onto the chateau itself.
