Garden ok. Nothing special other than the chateau in the background. Ruined by modern stainless steel water courses that are designed to be then center of attention. About as attractive as a 1970s council estate in the middle of a medieval village. Yuck. Birds of prey cages are saddening. A bald eagle on a 1 meter leash, continually facing the wall 5 inches away. So sad. Owls are locked in small sheds no bigger than the bathrooms inside the chateau. The house and audio guide are good.
Magnificent and show of raptors to see
