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.

L'un des 3 châteaux que nous avons visité, bien meublé, entretenu et vivant, en plus d'être chauffé ! Du personnel fort accueillant dans un cadre enchanteur.

And side tariff, nothing to say, for the price of the tour (€13), you have access to an "expo" (I put quotes because it's more than a show) Tintin in the castle of Moulinsart, of course. Free parking. A must see.
Of all of the chateaus we visited, this was the most meh, but still a very nice one. Lovely interiors, though there was a kind of lego exhibition going on and it marred the interiors - I understand it... more »
One of the most beautiful Chateau in the Loire Valley. What makes Cheverny unique is it is totally furnished and each room have been renovated exactly as it was. The owners lives in the Chateau and it shows how much they are for it.
The best castle for kids that I visited in France so far. Apart from historical items and displays, they also put lego paintings, statues, and others to depict stories so kids can guess. Most importantly, kids were thrilled to watch the feeding time of over 100 hound dogs here. Super duper nice place to visit with kids ans foe dog lovers especially
I'm writing this as I line up to go up the stairs of this castle. We lined up to get tickets. Lined up to enter the building. We noticed the line up to enter the forest area which requires an additional cost of 5 Euros. We are now half way up the stairs. The line is not moving as quickly. Just wondering if there is a line up to go down? If you love to line up, this place is amazing. If not, make sure you have something to read. Or just skip it.
The castle and garden are very nice. However on weekend there are a lot of people. There is no possible to buy tickets online, so you will need to wait at cash desk for at least 1h.
Cheverny is a special chateau with two bonus treats going for it: slightly off the beaten path and quaint little town that goes with it. So nice to get away from the crowds for a bit. Love the hounds! Also enjoyed wine tasting after touring.
