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.

  • We had such a lovely time! Everyone we encountered was so very gracious, especially with our very inadequate French! The Greeter at the Chateau doors has a wonderful sense of humor!

  • This stately hunting palace is one of the more lavishly furnished Loire chateaux. In my opinion, this is one of the top castles of the Loire Valley, which should be on the mandatory list of...

  • We did it all. We took the whole package of visiting the chateau, taking a glided tour car ride around their grounds, seeing old growth trees and many types of pine, Cyprus trees and poplar trees. They have 5,000 areas and about 2,500 areas of trees are used to generate money. And lastly, we took a boat ride through the lilly pads. It was most delightful. The Chateau was in a nice setting. We went through some rooms on the ground floor and I went through the few rooms on the next floor up. There were a lot of school children visiting the Chateau. So, it made it hard to see it all. It's worth the trip to visit this 600 year single family owned Chateau!
  • 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.
  • It is the best preserved Castle in the region. Well kept inside. Worth visiting it while going to the Loire. Put it number one in the list
  • Great Castle to visit. Really well staged with many of the original stuff which helps you immerse very well into the history. The gardens are worth a long tour and the Tin-Tin exposition definetly is a must if you or your kids have grown with it. I visited it in a very warm there and therefore, windows and blinds were closed in the castle making it very poorly ventilated and dense which make the visit s bit unpleasant at times.
  • Magical place, well preserved castle and jardin. Exceptional rare furnitures, paintings and tapestries. The Château de Cheverny, inhabited by the same family for 600 years, its 6 gardens and its Tintin exhibition amaze young and old.
