Really surprised by this place. The chateau is bijou by comparison to one's in the Loire, but the miniature museum is really interesting and the marionettes in the rooms are fun. The garden was the real treat, the water features surprise you as you never...More

The gardens are wonderfull, the castle itself is nothing special, it´s very small and a ticket is way too expensive for what you get. The staff in the castle refused to speak English and they weren´t friendlly at all. And why on earth do they...More

Beautiful chateau and furniture. Cute gift shop. But the best was the gardens, flowers and the surprise water features

Overall we enjoyed the visit. The receptionist was very friendly, explaining that the chateau rooms and kitchens closed for a short period over lunchtime (only for 60 and 30 minutes).The other staff were perhaps a little protective of their jobs, but were very helpful in...More

The chateau itself is sort of OK but is not well-presented - eg all the electric faux-candles are wonky in their stands, as if someone doesn't really care. The grounds are simply second-rate and are not well-cared for. The lawns are mowed but have weeds...More
