Environnement sympathique mais château fermé ! C'était pourtant indiqué ouvert sur internet... Dommage.

Super châteaux magnifique et alors avec les illuminations de noël, encore plus joli. Vaut le détour à ne pas rater.

Le parc mériterait bien plus d'attention, mais le château vaut vraiment la peine d'être visiter. La restauration est un peu trop moderne, le parquet par exemple, il aurait fallu mettre un parquet à l'ancienne, je pense pour faire un peu plus authentique, certaines pièces sont en manque de meubles mais je pense que cela viendra avec le temps. Je recommande la visite

Superbe restauration de ce magnifique château. Visite guidée attrayante, parcours dans le parc avec jeu pour les enfants, plongée dans le monde des chevaliers pour les petits et même escape gamelle pour les plus grands. En résumé, une belle visite pour tout le monde.

Montparnasse Cemetery

Montparnasse Cemetery was created from three farms in 1824. Cemeteries had been banned from Paris since the closure, owing to health concerns, of the Cimetière des Innocents in 1786. Several new cemeteries outside the precincts of the capital replaced all the internal Parisian ones in the early 19th century: Montmartre Cemetery in the north, Père Lachaise Cemetery in the east, and Montparnasse Cemetery in the south. At the heart of the city, and today sitting in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, is Passy Cemetery.

Montparnasse cemetery is the burial place of many of France's intellectual and artistic elite as well as publishers and others who promoted the works of authors and artists. There are also many graves of foreigners who have made France their home, as well as monuments to police and firefighters killed in the line of duty in the city of Paris.

The cemetery is divided by Rue Émile Richard. The small section is usually referred to as the small cemetery (petit cimetière) and the large section as the big cemetery (grand cimetière).

Although Baudelaire is buried in this cemetery (division 6), there is also a cenotaph to him (between division 26 and 27). Because of the many notable people buried there, it is a highly popular tourist attraction.
