It was wonderful several years ago, perhaps ten years ago, but now it isn't even possible to tour the grounds. As an alternative, visit the Chateau de Breteuil, perhaps 30 minutes away, but go with someone who can translate the excellent French tour guides.

We thought that for the price paid we can see the castle also, but it was closed. The gardens had nothing special to see. In addition, the castle looks deplorable. Certainly you can spend your money and time to go elsewhere.

Yes, of-course its the chateau that the punters come to look at. but we love this elegant village in its picturesque rural setting above the river Indre. It is certainly crowned by the massive medieval fortress. As we wheeled around a bend in the river,on...More

We liked to visit this chateau but we found out that it needs a lot of maintainance. The owners are not careful with the property. Sunshine every day through the windows are damaging the expensive furniture and curtains....

I confess I thought the price a bit high. But have no regrets. Wonderful surprisingly decorated rooms. Great visit when in the neighborhood.

This Chateau is within just a few hundred yards of the village of Dampierre and it's complete with moat. We paid to visit both the mansion and the gardens, though you can choose to visit the gardens only. The mansion is accessible only by guided...More
