  • Wonderful garden to visit any time of the year. In particular, outside of the tourist season, it is very peaceful. Don't forget to walk up to the vineyards.

  • Lovely castle with a beautiful garden You can walk here for hours For the garden you don't have to pay but if you want to visit any of the many buildings then you have to buy a ticket witch is quite cheap 8€ I will highly recommend it
  • Only the outside part and Garden area is amazing. Not many stuff inside. Most of them already gone and many of them are Chinese stuff. When I were there there was art exhibition inside the castle and I think it was bad idea, cose I could not enjoy the room tour with many modern art stuff inside.
