Located in the middle of a thousand year old forest, this protective site cultivates an art of living since the XVIIth century. The young marquis, Jean-Louis de Courbon transformed a castle into an elegant classic home.
Come to discover a castle inhabited, entirely furnished and decorated of time. Between the cabinet of paintings, the balcony, the room or the dining room you will feel the well-being of an authentic classified house. This house was also baptized by Pierre Loti "Castle of the Sleeping Beauty". Not to be missed: a remarkable cabinet of paintings on wood (1662).

    Bonjour, En fait je n'ai ‘‘regardé‘‘ le château et une partie du parc que ‘‘de loin‘‘.... Le parc étant interdit aux chiens même tenus en laisse. Ce n'est pas le cas à Chambord, à Chenonceau, et en partie à Versailles.... Etc. Je ne comprends pas ! Cordialement Brigitte VIVET
