  • Small and simple restored chateau. Interesting display of the restoration work which is still ongoing in the gardens. A small maze with a central lookout post entertains the little ones. The kitchen garden is also an interesting feature as well as the topiary in the formal garden.
  • A hidden gem. A bit out of the way but worth the extra kms. Very well preserved castle with amazing ceilings and walls. Wonderful gardens including a boxwood maze. English speaking guide was very good.
