This is an amazing place. I did it as a (comfortable) day trip from Paris. There has been a chateau on this site from 1400; the stables, built around 1600 and originally housing 230 horses, now house about 30 horses and a comprehensive horse museum....More

Really enjoyed the visit. Stables are really impressive and well worth a visit even if you’re not really into horses. The dressage show was interesting, but as everyone says all in French. Enjoyed the painting exhibition. Puts all other stables in the shade.

The museum is also the site of a dynamite equestrian show that is like a lovely horse ballet, augmented by acrobats. Even had trained donkeys. Really worth it, and the museum is nice too if you have an interest in horses.

The grand royal stables “Grandes Écuries” are larger than many chateaus: they house the horse museum, stables and a horse show. The museum will mainly appeal to horse enthusiasts. The show is interesting for most people. Get a combo ticket with the castle and show...More
