Information for disabled visitors

We welcome visitors with different access requirements and we have a Parking Bay for wheelchair users.

The Castle’s front gate is accessible through a wheelchair ramp. However, the 250-year parquet floors are fragile and therefore only manual wheelchairs are permitted in the house (no electric wheelchairs and scooters).

The Gardens are only partially accessible for wheelchairs because the paths are mainly gravel. Due to the historic nature of the Gardens, disabled access is also limited in some areas due to exterior stairs and steep slopes. Garden benches allow visitors to take a break, watch the mountains and enjoy the music of water.


  • Adults: €9
  • Children from 6 to 18 years old: €6
  • Families (2 adults + 2 children): €24
  • Free for children under 6 years old.
