The chateau is beautiful, not only the inside but also the grounds. It also contains a lot of period furniture as well as an exhibit on Napoleon Bonaparte. A lot of history took place here and it is definitely worth a visit.

We really enjoyed the visit but if you have to choose between this and Versailles I would choose Versailles just for the provenance of Versailles.
