Create an itinerary including Chateau de Cheverny
Renowned for magnificent interiors and the collection of furniture, tapestries, and objets d'art, Chateau de Cheverny has belonged to the same family for over six centuries. They own a pack of about seventy hunting dogs that live on the grounds, and you can watch them being fed on the live video feed. Guided tours offer added fun as you drive an electric car or boat to discover the grounds. A walk down to the guardroom leads you to a collection of arms and armor, while venturing further brings you to the Chambre du Roi that is richly hung with five Parisian tapestries designed by Simon Vouet to represent the story of Ulysses. Your visit to the castle includes a look at the fictional castle by author and illustrator, Hergé, the creator of the "Adventures of Tintin," who used Cheverny as his inspiration.

  • Well maintained Chateau. A clearly described tour with neat decorations to illustrate the purpose of each room. De dog kennel is a unique feature. 120 dogs that are being fed publicly each day. A soup garden and labyrinth accompany the vineyard.
  • The most beautiful castle I've ever been to! Château de Cheverny is definitely one of the Loire Valley castles worth to visit. It is special mainly for its spectacular interior. All the rooms are fully furnished which gives the whole visit a special atmosphere.
