Amazing Chateau, quite unbelievable gardens, almost more unbelievable vegetable gardens, huge grounds to wander. Worth the price of admission. Would recommend the audio tour.

Worth ir for its gardens. The castle itself is not very impressive. Worth visiting the outsides of the castle. Great flower vases in each room
