Une buvette est mise à disposition pour éviter toute déshydratation, les sandwichs et crêpes sont aussi au rendez-vous. Pour les plus jeunes, prenez place dans le petit train gratuit pour faire des tours du parc et du Château.

C'est aussi le bon moment pour se laisser porter par l'incroyable histoire de Bertrand de Beauvau à travers une visite du Château guidée par le maître des lieux. Pendant les Journées Européennes du Patrimoine le tarif appliqué aux visites est à prix réduit.
