This “renovation” is just an exercise in tasteless bling. Anyone who charges this sort of entrance fee and does not accept plastic for entry (cheques and cash inky thanks) is simply in the exploitation business, with no interest in public education.
I have tried to visit on several occasions but opening times are a bit erratic (as often in France). But got it right this time & it was worth it. The scale is spectacular, the planting & maintenance impeccable, the vistas & garden buildings and...More
