  • Wonderful! A beautiful castle in the middle of the countryside. The exterior is stunning with the drawbridge and the four towers. You can walk around the water to see the castle from many viewpoints. Entering there are many rooms to visit to end with a library and a small chapel. Only issue: the leaflet we were given (in English) at the entrance was totally outdated. France has to improve the way foreign tourists who don't know French are treated in monuments, places, etc.

  • A small castle, not famous, but one of the most beautiful in the Loire Valley. Enjoyed the visit!
