We were given passionate and informative tales of French and Burgundian history by Christian, our personal guide. The building is always delightful and awe-inspiring in places. We are now researching Burgundian history. Thank you very much Christian. Highly recommended. Claire and Geoff

I'll admit to being a bit reluctant to visit this Château beforehand- it barely features in the guidebooks and on the surface is a fairly destroyed and small site with better alternatives around. What makes the visit is firstly the importance of the Chateau in...More
