Chateau de Cheverny, Cheverny

4.3
#1 of 8 in Things to do in 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.

  • in the rooms, richly decorated with... Legos!!! Tintin is too ubiquitous I find, always and still the commercial, the Park of beautiful trees, a beautiful lime tree or some branches took root, Castle has to see of course without more

  • Everything is beautiful!! The gardens are sublime and very well maintained!! In addition, there are giant eggs in the Park in order to match Easter ^^ the exhibition Tintin is interesting and lively (experiences of Professor sunflower to do, answer the phone etc.). The castle is beautiful and the Easter theme is also highlighted. In addition, the exhibition of Legos is well arranged in the various halls. The little downside I can do is about the kennel. The dogs seem happy but the pens smell bad.

  • Beautiful castle, which offers many rooms to visit, all perfectly furnished and which hosted the LEGO Expo very successful. We had a pleasant time with a small return to childhood in the building dedicated to the exhibition Tintin. Nothing grandiose but for the lovers of Tintin it is a real pleasure. Lunch on the terrace of the trophy room to enjoy a beautiful ray of sunshine. Very simple but good. To finish a big walk in the park where you can admire, among other things, giant sequoias.

  • Lovely chateau with a great atmosphere, just as if the occupants have popped out for a while and you are able to wander through their house following an excellent brochure guide in English. Loved being able to see the hounds and a must is popping onto the salon de the where there is a fantastic stained glass picture of the chateau and the hounds.
  • Magnificent Chateau. I think the best time to visit is summer. The nature is very beautiful. However, autumn is very colorful. There are over 100 dogs near the castle. It is a must to watch them. The trip with the boat was very romantic. The guide was very professional. If you want to avoid crowded times, go in October. It is still warm and nice.
  • Such a fun and playful place to see. The mixture of elegant decor and playful pieces were great...made me smile. Definitely a place to stop in and see!
  • Castle with lovely furniture and a long family history. Nice grounds, kennel is a must see if you like hunting dogs, even if you don't. Tintin exhibition is more recommended for children.
  • A wonderful example of French architectural design and development. Beautiful to view. A must see!
