I do like a chateaux because they are generally steeped in some sort of varied history. This chateaux is no different. Granted however my reason for visiting was because Rommel used it in 1944. The chateaux itself was impressive and if you have no major...More

Visited independently, on a dry cloudy day. Chateau living quarters displayed either historical furniture (including "Napoleon's Chair" or chaise longue portrayed as modern art).Having got so far, I found three tunnels took me surreally to the Keep, at which point (more surreally) 12 Eurofighters passed-by...More

Well worth visiting for its extraordinary position and sweeping views from the top .Reasonable information but not enough on it's role in world war 2 .

Stumbled upon the village after we couldn't get into the Claude Monet garden at nearby Giverny. On the banks of the Seine, the 16th century chateau is in a remarkably good condition, although there is not a lot of furniture inside. There is a walled...More

We happened to see this on our way to the gardens. You can hike up a big tower and look over the whole city. Must see it

Magnificent on the outside - not so on the inside. I'm travelling solo with my miniature Schnauzer throughout France. I'm in total disbelief that that I cannot even tie him up in the courtyard of the chateau, let alone take him on lead throughout the...More

Hands up, I'm a War enthusiast. The history part, not the fighting bit. I went to the Chateau for one reason, its connection with Erwin Rommel. Truthfully there is, apart from a bunker with nothing relevant to WW2 in it, not much to see as...More

Hi - so sorry - have been away. On this occasion I'm not able to help. We were passing through and had accommodation and restaurants booked elsewhere.
