Great place with a small museum. Lots of art and antiques. Well worth a look. And goes to the running of an amazing old building.

When I went to Dieppe, I didn't expect to find this castle very near. It was really nice to see. It would be great the opening hours were longer. The price is not expensive at all. 4,50€. You can walk around the castle.

Although we did not visit the part we had to pay for (lack of time), we were able to appreciate the chateau's grounds and architecture. It's worth a stroll, for sure.
