The visitor in question must be accompanied by an able-bodied person (whose presence is essential in order to be able to use the sloping ramps and gravel pathways in the gardens).
Visitors subject to this disability may access with their vehicle* the terraces of the château from where you have access to the Royal House, to Saint-Hubert's Chapel (Leonardo da Vinci's tomb) as well as the gardens. Access to the ground floor of the Royal House is possible from the courtyard and access to the first floor from the garden (situated between ground floor and first floor) where there is a straight staircase of just a few steps which is equipped with a foldaway ramp. Because of the spiral staircase, access to the second floor (XIXth century) is not possible for those in a wheelchair for the time being. The complete layout of the visit now on view! A video available to visitors on the 1st floor makes it possible to visualize all the inaccessible parts of the royal apartments (2nd floor and the Minimes Tower).
Eviter l'accès difficile par la billetterie en accédant aux terrasses avec votre véhicule :
Call our reception personnel using the interphone at the private entrance (indications will be given where to drop off the visitor and park the vehicle).
The accompanying person must proceed to the ticket office to pick up the visit leaflet (and/or audio-video guide equipment required by the disabled visitor, if ordered at the time of on-line ticket purchase).
New: The complete visit is now visible! A video available on the 1st floor enables visitors to view all the parts of the Royal House which are inaccessible (Saint-Hubert's chapel, 2nd floor of the Minimes Tower). Audio and video guided visit (2nd floor) in French and English
