Paid €9 each to walk around a few empty rooms. Worse still, the rooms with contents had really horrific “art” that was so out of touch with the feel of the building. Honestly, keep driving and go the Chartres or something.

Unfortunately the chateau was undergoing necessary restoration on our visit, so most of the external views of the architecture were covered up. However, I should imagine its beautiful. The chateau is situated​ at the end of the main street, just off the town square, in...More

The castle was under construction when we visited, but the gardens are beautiful. You can rent a boat for a ride on the lake or you can rent a bike/ kart to visit the garden

The Chateau was under renovation when we visited buy the gardens were lovely. Nice place to spend half a day. The town has a charm of its own
