Chateau d'Anet was built in the 14th century and was inhabited by Diane de Poitiers, wife of Henry II of France. It has been captured and retaken, demolished (in part) and rebuilt in the centuries and is now inhabited by a "normal" French family. There are many pictures and items of furniture to admire.They are open every afternoon at 2pm,... More

I was shocked to find we could not leave the tour when we wanted to. Effectively kept in the house for 75 minutes listening to the guide speaking rapidly in French which I couldn't really understand. Was so glad to get out. Couldn't even have a look at the grounds and no facilities. Very disappointing.

The Château may not be as beautiful as it once was, but it is worth a visit just to see the Statue of Diana the Huntress behind the main Chapel on the right as you enter the Château courtyard. Yes, the tour is in French, but you are given a translation sheet and/or can buy a guidebook in English as... More

Town of Dreux is an hour from the centre of Paris by train. From the train station you can take a number 28 or 80 which takes you to Anet. Dont ask the taxi drivers at the station if a bus goes to Anet as they will tell you no buses goes to the Chateau and then charge you 35... More

We went out of our way to visit this chateau in May 2012 and were very disappointed. Many people were gathered in the courtyard when we arrived (after paying an entrance fee) and after about 10 minutes an officious woman who turned out to be the guide unlocked the doors of the chateau and we all streamed in and then...

I do enjoy good food and I have to say that this restaurant gave us the best! Really enjoyed a wonderful meal with our party of 8 friends. Great ingredience and service and all at a very reasonable price. Planning our next trip to France just so we return to this restaurant! It can't come soon enough.

Je ne me lasse jamais de visiter ces châteaux privés, malgré les restrictions (visite guidée, aucune photo, etc.). Ces châtelains du monde d'aujourd'hui y consacrent amour, temps et argent pour nous faire revivre notre histoire (oui, je suis canadien, mais de souche française en 1655). Quelle belle collection de pièces inédites, relatant les faits les plus intéressants de Diane de... More
