A very lovely small chateau set in beautiful grounds and with some interesting attic rooms stuffed full of antique junk... but (spoiler alert!) we found that the intriguing tale of the faithless wife walled up in a tiny room was nothing but a lie designed...More

the castle is beautiful and extremely interesting. The "cabinet mythologique " is a wonder. The visit as a whole is amusing and intructive.

Family owned for 5 centuries this beautiful chateau in the heart of the countryside, with its own ghost, is a great way to while away the afternoon.

This was the last day in Dordogne and last chateau to visit. The weather was absolutely perfect for the end of September and not many tourists. We pretty much had the hole chateau to ourselves. Amazing interiors greatly preserved and displayed.

This is a lovely visit. The family still occupies a portion of the chateau, and your visit helps keep the place going, so that's a good thing. There's lots to see, including rooms with furniture and hangings. I think it's a neat place to see...More

Nice Castle to visit. Impressive building. However, the rooms were rather 'typical', not that special from other castles we visited. There are many castles in this area, some focusing on Middle Ages, some on more recent centuries. (We did not take a guided tour). This...More

We went for the Tuesday night "visite nocturne" which is animated by two local theatre actors called the "ROUGE Ideal". Throughout the tour in each different room the actors played a scene from "Les Fables de Jean de La Fontaine". It was all in French...More

Fairly good chateau although would be good if there were tours in English as there seems to be a lot of interesting history we missed out on. Would recommend an hour only here as not a great deal to do.
