Castle Tourist Spot
The Château de Beauregard is a Renaissance castle in the Loire Valley in France. It is located on the territory of the commune of Cellettes, a little south of the city of Blois and a few miles from other famous Loire châteaux such as Cheverny. Although still inhabited, it can be visited by tourists. The castle is renowned for its Gallery of portraits decorated in the 17th century with 327 portraits of famous people.HistoryMost of the castle was built around 1545, when it was bought by Jean du Thiers, Lord of Menars, and Secretary of State to Henri II. The commissioned interior included frescoes on the fireplace of the royal chamber, which have survived. In the Great Gallery there is a fireplace in Italian style from this period. However its main feature was commissioned by Paul Ardier, Comptroller of Wars and Treasurer, who bought the château in 1617. He added further interior decorations over the next few decades, including a gallery of portraits.The castle is built on the edge of the Russy Forest.The ruins of a chapel, prior to the fifteenth century, are still visible in the park. It shows, in stone, shell of the pilgrims of Saint Jacques de Compostela and the motto of the crusaders "God the Volt."The original manor house was built in the late fifteenth century by the family Doulcet. Jean Doulcet, Master of the House of Coins of Duke Charles of Orleans.

  • The site is absolutely too expensive. €12.50 for an adult when Cheverny is only €10.50 and has much more to offer. That said, the portrait room is stunning. The grounds are charming. They could really benefit from allowing more of the chateau to be viewed.
  • Park was OK though there were almost no flowers
  • Too many other spectacular places to see to waste the time and money visiting here. Agree with other reviewers that the price of admission is too high, limited things to see, inadequate facilities and needs some attention.
  • The gardens are unique! Small but beautiful château!
  • This private Castle has little content about the high price of 12 euros required to visit the Park and Castle. The grounds are abandoned and seeds except the immense lawns there is nothing really to see despite the alternative routes proposed in the brochure. I just hope the ticket money will help to improve the State of the estate.
