The facade of the chateau is very impressive, the garden is great too, however, I need to deduct one star because of the bizarre human figures arranged in each and every room (even the stairway!) The period clothes of the figures are not in medieval or renaissance style, rather, the 1920s or around, not sure why they want to spoil the otherwise lovely rooms and interior. The sleeping beauty tower is fun, but perhaps you need to be a child to really appreciate the style deployed in recreating the famous fairytale.
This is a real fairy-tale castle right out of the story books. We were there at the end of the day when the crowds were gone. It is so cool, awesome architecture, we loved it. The whole area is charming. We recommend planing a visit to this fairy-tale chateau!
Absolutely splendid chateau, with a wonderful child friendly tableau of Sleeping Beauty through numerous rooms and areas of the chateau. The grandchildren were enthralled! Highly recommended, for children of any age, from 4 to 90! Well done!!!
One of the most beautiful castles in the Loire Valley and certainly the most romantic. It still belongs to a princely family and, if you are lucky, you may just cross the Prince and Duke of Blacas around the delightful gardens. The castle was one of the major real-life locations which inspired Disney castles and also the author of Sleeping Beauty. Children will absolutely love it as a result !! There is even a Sleeping Beauty trail with recreated scenes from the book in rooms under the roof. Exhibition of period clothes on mannequin in the rooms gives it a Downton Abbey feel and renders the room more interesting. When we visited there were log fires roaring in the huge fireplaces and fresh flowers in almost every room....a dream!
An impressive building with well maintained gardens but a rather faded internal exhibition. Interesting but the 14 euro entrance fee led me to expect more.
