When visiting this castle, you will not be disappointed. The gardens alone are worth the trip. We had a very nice lunch at their golf course restaurant and the service was very good. 5 stars for me!
A lovely XVIIth century castle, surrounded by very diverse lavish gardens, some with exotic cultural references, containing a large array of water fountains, columns and statues. Among these, a stunningly beautiful tropical greenhouse. Within the castle building itself, numerous collection items of stuffed animals and insects are to be found on the ground floor, added to appealing stylish bedroom and livingroom furniture, carpets, tapestries, and paintings on the first floor, all belonging to the classical, baroque and rococo periods, most pleasing to the eye. The entrance fee may seem somewhat expensive indeed, yet the visit is well worth making. About three hours or so should suffice to take in the beauty of this location.
