Chateau de Valencay Reviews
C'est sans aucun doute un des joyaux du Berry. Mais, ayant été un gestionnaire d'un patrimoine immobilier, j'ai trouvé qu'il avait énormément de poussière dans les pièces.

But all of this must cost a lot of money. He has so many assets to save in France. This place is a must. Tip, don't touch the goats...

Beautiful castle. I love visiting the rooms and reading about the history of the people that lived there. The visit is fast enough that the kids don’t get bored. There is a little show in the kitchen with sounds and lights. Plus there is plenty of room for the kids to play outside in the gardens and in the maze. The best was the little farm with the goats and peacocks. The kids loved it.
Very nice from the outside as well as gorgeous gardens but.....the inside is not very clean and looks shabby. Needs renovation. Also very bear furniture wise. Only the kitchen in the basement is nice as well as the 3-D presentation.
