Wow…. This is an absolute must to visit if you are in the area. Stunning gardens, extremely informative tour of the chateau with an audio guide, amazing falconry display and some lovely exotic birds to see en route around the grounds. We had lunch outside on the terrace at the restaurant which was also excellent. Great value for money and a thoroughly great afternoon in the lovely sunshine.
What we loved about this castle is a perfect mix of medieval history and a most more recent story. The audio tour is very engaging, also for the (teenage) kids. The bird show was fun! All in all, well worth a visit. You’ll 3-4 hours including the bird show and audio tour.
