The Château was built on a cliff with a fantastic view on the river Loire. The horse stables are in a perfect state. The huge park shelters every year, from May to November, the famous “Festival des Jardins”: some 26 pieces of land are attributed to landscape architects, who have to grow and organize their garden on a given theme, changing every year! You can spend a day there, with 2 lovely restaurants in the park.
