This fully furnished Château is a real gem! with 19th century decoration inside which is breathtaking.
It is a family owned castle and has been in the family since 1306 which is rather rare! We had the privilege to be taken around the estate by one of the family members before the guide showed the group inside. Understandably you can not take photographs inside the castle, nor the chapel protecting the outstanding 19th century decoration.
The guide was excellent and we were given a written translation in English as the visit we took was in French, you just have to ask when buying the tickets. The visit lasted over an hour and was really interesting.
You can visit some Sauternes sweet white wine chateau on the same day, and in that area there are many examples of medieval castles such as Balizac and Chateau de Villandraut which you can see whilst driving through.
