Beautiful chateau with a lake, herb garden and town with amenities. Perfect for artists, walkers or just a place to enjoy French food, architecture and history. Have visited in Spring and Autumn and both are naturally beautiful.

Had a pleasant morning wondering through the town & down to the water through the medieval gardens. Chateau is undergoing restoration & wasn't open the morning we went but it is still worth a look. A lovely place for a meander

Spent a lovely afternoon here today, the Château itself is under some construction, but this does not detract from its imposing looks. We arrived too early for the 1.30pm tour but this gave us time to wander around the nearby lake and have our picnic...More
