I visited the Chateau while cruising the Seine.It was a beautiful setting for a truly remarkable tour of the distilling process. The guide was excellent and the nearby village of Le Breuil en Auge is stunning.

Hello, dear patricia, normally you have to wait for the group to form so consider 15min max at casher then around 30 to 40min for the tour. Then you stay at the 'degustation' as long as you wish. Ciao Gianluca
