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.

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.
