I don' t think I need to write just another review about a place that is awash with visitors. It is superb and very well preserved, but for me, the library was everything. I would have loved to stay..... more

We visited here yesterday and bought the ticket that allowed you into all the museums. I did think it was rather rude charging extra for a photography licence! It was a great day- all the museums...

A beautiful and well maintained castle. We hired a tour guide and had more than one hour tour in which a lot of interesting information was shared with us about the cake y and the family. I will bring my girls here next time as they love castles and go without the tour, in sure it will be good enough for them. I do but recommend going up the tour, it is but really worth the extra charge nor the bird garden, didn't see anything too interesting there.
Simply wow! I really can't understand why this palace is not all that know abroad as other palaces, because it's really a little gem that should be visited MORE for sure! I didn't visit it internally because I didn't have time, but externally it's just wonderful, especially thanks to its gardens! The palace and gardens are both very well kept and well cared for
