cheverny castle

The most attractive hunting meeting point in the Loire Valley !


We cannot say that Cheverny was a Royal residence:  Henry IV came to Cheverny but he stood in the old fortress of the 16th century, whereas the present château  was constructed at the beginning of the 17th century.
However, you will be amazed to see how exquisite indoors decoration is. You will be fascinated by the pack of over 70 dogs. You will be charmed by the beauty of its parkland. Many art works from the Louvre museum were hidden in the Orangery during World War Two. The Mona Lisa was one of them.
As regards children, they will recognize Captain Addoc’s castle in "Tintin and Milou" from Hergé.
