    Remarkable! .. As announced by its gardens. A beautiful place to visit both wild and perfectly maintained (and in a responsible way, what's more!) A real plus, a guided tour accompanied by an enthusiast! We will be back in the spring when it blooms

    Very beautiful park, 💜 for the basin and its water lilies invite us to contemplation. Too bad we couldn't visit the castle.

    WONDERFUL the plants will guide you throughout the visit, roses with extraordinary perfumes, boxwood with voluptuous and spiral shapes around the basin, foliage with delicious colors in the Arboretum, a History, a magical place that must be visited , atmospheres and varied collections, the International Festival of Chamber Music of Thèze during the summer, time stands still in Viven

    Nous sommes surpris que ce lieu ne figurait pas déjà dans Trip Advisor. Vraiment il vaut la peine d'une visite car le travail pour rénover les jardins de ce château sont remarquables. Il y a plus...
