The main floor has a drawing-room (with high quality stereo), desk-room (with high speed internet connection, fax and printer), dining-room and kitchen. It has been redone in the late 18th century, with wood paneling and wood floor. It is decorated with antiques and paintings. The drawing-room overlooks the valley and its lake. The dining-room has view over the gardens and park. The basement has kept its original Salle basse (large kitchen) and salle de gardes of the 15th century with beamed ceiling, tile floor and huge chimneys. The upper floor has 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and a library equipped with video, DVD and CD equipment, with lots of DVD'S,CD'S , books, board games and puzzles.
