Tips from locals
Surrounded by landscaped gardens, this highly significant site in the history of France also houses an exceptional collection of Gothic and Renaissance furniture.
The chateau is high up and worth visiting but so is the town. Cool clothes shops, cobbled streets, good food and happy vibe. I love going there. Cool Sunday market, largest in France they claim...

“Its not really the chateau that we recommend, although beautiful, it is the stunning gardens. Laid out like a glorified 'potager' with formal planting, mixed with garden veg and flowers. A large lake with swans and a garden with perennial flowers, more like an English garden. Plenty of walks with stunning views over the garden. ”
