We came fairly late in the afternoon, so only a cheaper, garden tour with few rooms was possible. And that was great. The castle itself saw better days and it was upsetting to see a mish-mash collection of randomly collected paintings at its wall. Almost...More

Chateau Cormatin is truly one of the most fantastic castles I have ever seen. Walk over the moat, and enter a large room in the castle with an interesting staircase that rises up and actually looks down into the cellar (dungeon!). Built in the 1700’s...More

The building and gardens outside is beautiful. To see the inside of the building you have to go on the guided tour (which costs extra). The tour is only given in French even though the guides also speak English. Instead, they give you a folder...More

Incredibly well preserved Chateau. This chateau escaped the wrath of the French revolutionaries because the local people actually liked their lord and/or he fed then barrels of wine! The ladies chamber is preserved untouched from early 17th century as is the “room of curiosities “....More

The visit to the chateau is by guided tour which really adds to the visit. Although it is in French there is an excellent handout in English which is much more comprehensive that those you usually get. The chateau is fully furnished and decorated in...More
