Very picturesque minor chateau. It still has the feel of a family home. I'd recommend doing the audio guide as it makes the visit so much more interesting (you have to leave a passport etc as security). The gardens are the real feature of this attraction and the best place to view them is from the roof so make sure you do go up! The audio guide tells you what you are looking at. What was such a nice feature was the flower displays in the house.
If you are looking for another attraction to do in the day, we went on to Chinon but we had wished we had gone to Usse instead (basis of Sleeping beauty)
