  • The castle of Chaumont is a well of history where from room to room we discover a new part of our history. It is filled with maze and stairs where unfortunately room numbers still to be renovated but where we had the great idea to allow some artist to express themselves and make themselves known... Very nice Castle.. Not to be missed.

  • Revisited once again this Wednesday, February 8, it is always a pleasure to the course of this beautiful castle posted at the top of the hillside and overlooking the beautiful wild river what is the Loire, also with a beautiful park and the Royal Stables also to visit which has alone would make a "small" excellent mansion! Farm or a multitude of small expos, as well as a beautiful winter greenhouse installed in a building. The Castle course is well signposted and the explanations are many, the enfilade of the beautiful pieces to prosecutors well polished and full of history then the ascent into the floors including some pieces, to renovate, just be open to the public with some artistic exhibitions. Very few people the day of the visit, which has guaranteed a quiet visit with many explanations and comments on the history of this Royal House or lived many of the characters in our history of France. During the visit, a secret place and little visited in the large central park Grove, the small cemetery of dogs who lived in the castle for centuries. Time and quiet to visit Castle and Park, far from the large summer crowds at the garden festival. Beautiful, beautiful park, short still a jewel of the Loire.
