  • Fascinating little gem. The staircase inside is a real masterpiece! We also had the opportunity to see a photographic exhibition of great interest.

  • This little gem is situated in a small village, very very nice and kept very well L exterior of the castle is very well cared for, the avenue from which you access is paved and full of beautiful geranium vases. From the outside and beautiful, a miniature of that of Florence!! Inside was a discovery... apart from the art exhibition to see, but the structure of the castle is just beautiful. We loved it and it's worth the price of entry. P.s. there are 102 stairs x get to the top, but it's worth it! To visit
