We had an absolute blast at this home. We could have stayed longer playing in the garden. The chateau is full of interesting information but the highlight for us was the garden with all of da Vinci's inventions in life size.

No problem. Lots of places in the gardens to sit and eat. We didn't do it ourselves but saw lots of others picnicking and wished we had too.

There are a small number of free spaces just down the road, next to a new pay parking area, which is not too expensive. There are signs to the chateaux from the ring road, and we found it easily.
