The castle is really beautiful, you have to go to the rooftop called "le dôme" the view is breathtaking ! And the garden is one of the most incredible I've ever seen ! Take the little car : worth it.

The inspiration for Versailles, on a more "human" scale. You can imagine living here. Well worth an afternoon of your trip. Hour train ride from Paris, then ChateauBus to/from station.

The Château appears in Moonraker (1979) as the estate of villain Hugo Drax. In the film it is superimposed onto the Mojave desert where it was supposedly transported "brick-by-brick".

Très beau château, visité à l'occasion d'une soirée aux chandelles. Le château et le parc sont parfaitement mis en valeur par ces chandelles. Un petit feu d'artifice pour clore la soirée, très sympa !
