Trip Planner: Europe / France / Centre-Val de Loire / Loir-et-Cher / Chaumont-sur-Loire / Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire
Your ticket to Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire provides entrance to the castle wings, gardens, stables, castle park, as well as the arts and nature center. The surrounding park incorporates an English naturalist landscape by Henri Duchêne, while the castle illustrates both the defensive architecture of the Gothic period and the fanciful styles of the Renaissance.
Guided tours are available in English, and a program with a map of the grounds and interior offers spirited local information and historical tidbits. One fun fact is that Catherine de Médici entertained numerous astrologers at this site, including Nostradamus in 1560.
View works of contemporary artists, permanent exhibitions of great photographers' works, and the arts and nature project that builds on the relationship between nature and culture. The boutique du château and the garden shop offer regional cuisine and souvenirs with a local flair.
