Chateau de Cheverny, Cheverny

(2,200+ reviews on the web)
Castle Tourist Spot
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. By using our Cheverny vacation builder, you can arrange your visit to Chateau de Cheverny and other attractions in Cheverny.

  • We saw the chateau last on our tour of 3 castles. It's nice but nothing spectacular. The grounds are okay but a lot was closed off. I probably wouldn't make a special trip just to see it but it was no...  more »
  • Cheverny was built in early XVII century in classical architectural style. Inside is fine collection of furniture from XVII - IXX centuries. Inside is more interested than Chambord.  more »
  • This Chateau was in a grand style. Not crowded and we planned our time to be at the dog kennel at 11:15 for the 11:30 feeding. About 100 baying hounds that "do " know it's time to eat. The how and wha...  more »

  • 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.
  • One of the best chateaus in the Loire. I would recommend it even over Chenonceau. Make sure you see the dogs in the kennels and go to the Tintin museum if you have kids.
  • Beautiful castle with a large domain that make feel you like Tintin. On Sunday we saw dogs for hunting and cosplay people walking around. Staff of the castle are really kind However the drive by electric car and the boat is not worth it.
  • Super fun. House is more "modern" and a family lives there. Great place for kids because 3xs a week they feed the 100+ hunting hounds and that is a sight to behold! Nice break for kids who are being dragged from Chateau to Chateau.
  • Great experience, we loved the brochure provided: it gives interesting small stories. The hunt dogs are a weird experience, those dog are really violent with each other and all caged in a small area.
