  • A lovely visit. The chateau isn't very large, but the visit is nice. The story of the marriage was excellent. The price is reasonable, especially given the activities included.

  • The castle is considered to be the oldest from France, even it suffered many maintenance works during time it is pleasant to be visited. There you can see also the remaining "walls" from an old chapel, dated 1000 years ago and the gardens. For us the visit took 2 h. The view is very nice from above, you can see a large and long bridge, the river Loire and the City. It is nice. I recommend it to be visited.
  • One of the few Chateaus that is dog friendly. You can take them inside and in the gardens. Smaller than the other grand chateaus though and simple garden. The entry wasn't step free. Also located in a cute town
