This is a must see if you are in the area, absolutely beautiful, plenty to see and lovely places to eat just down the street. Not really a place for kids unless you have older kids into history but well worth the trip.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Chateau this morning. The tours are usually in French though there is an English tour at 2.30. My tour was in French which I speak reasonably fluently. Our guide really knew her brief and was keen to share...More
