Very nice place, interesting exhibition. Warmly recommended.
Lovely little chateau, you could actually get in this one as well. There are several chateau in the area but they do not have websites like Britain and can be quite difficult to find the entrance as they are on private land and sat navs take you down dodgy routes. Very quiet area and not at all busy, very reasonable entrance fee ( only cost us €20). Children between 5 and 12 are usually free.
