Extensive grounds including fantastic medieval herb garden, potager and aromatic garden. There are lots of steep slopes around the grounds but you can visit as much or as little as you want. The chateau which in itself is very interesting also hosts regular exhibitions. "...More

Was really looking forward to this visit but have to say was a little disappointed. Very impressive visually but the grounds (although plenty of it) was a little on the boring side. Views however were amazing and we did get some beautiful photographs.

We spent and hour and a half walking through this amazing estate. Saw people having a picnic and relaxing. We didn't go in the Chateau because it was closed while we were there but the beautiful gardens and landscaping made it fabulous.

On a cloudy, sporadically rainy late summer day, this was a fabulous place to revive the spirits. Plenty of space to park. The grounds provide a huge variety of vistas and enclaves with lots of different features from woodland paths, river views to walled gardens....More
