"A beautifully furnished chateau" Cheverny by Beausoleil
Cheverny Travel Guide: 54 reviews and 205 photos
Cheverny is not a medieval chateau. It's quite modern (as chateaus go), in marvelous shape and beautifully furnished. The grounds are spectacular and beg for a leisurely walk. You can watch the feeding of the hounds and marvel at how well trained they are. Then take a walk in the kitchen garden and notice how beautifully decorated it is.
There are horses to admire next to the garden. It is a beautiful experience. Check the Official Web site for times and prices. Official Web Site for Chateau Cheverny
We were amazed the first time we saw this. You can't believe how well trained these dogs are. We saw if for the first time at a different chateau and several chateaus make a show of the daily feedings. It is worth it and great fun for the kids. At one of the chateaus it was spring and they had the puppies out to show them off. All the children at that show were much more interested in puppies than in the feeding ritual. I wonder why!
The village of Cheverny is tiny but very pretty, covered with flowers. There is at least one bar across from the chateau entrance and a very nice restaurant right beside the entrance. It's fun to visit the church and walk around the village to admire all the flowers and the architecture. Notice the pretty lace curtains in all the windows.
- Pros:Small, quiet and beautiful village
- In a nutshell:A completely different chateau experience
