Not only the castle left an impression, but the whole region and the village. Comfortable and clean. I wonder how it is in winter around Christmas. Our final destination was Reims (300km), but we circled here mostly with another 100km. It was a successful stopover.

This castle is exceptional. The general site could still be more attractive but I really appreciated
