  • We visited the Chateaux, it's good value and interesting in an amazing backdrop. However the whole visit is applied by slow poor organisation. You have to queue for everything, not because there are....  more »
  • What a beautiful hidden gem, spent the morning walking around and revisiting history- fascinating. Will be back to see more  more »

  • This is mostly a well marketed old home. It's a "castle" in the sense that there are many types of houses worthy of that name and it's definitely historic, but I don't think it's worth the entry price, and I've seen a LOT of castles in France. The silk production process is explained within the castle, which is relatively interesting and the only truly unique thing I've seen here. The castle was restored a few years back and some towers were "added", but no proof was given that those belonged there... It might well be that they do, but you'd expect some historic explanation. Anyway, doubting between 2 and 3 stars I'd prefer giving them a 2.5, but since their rating is higher than I think they deserve I'm going with 2.
