OK. So same family own this castle for generations. They still live here. And your tickets are paying for it. They keep everything very industrial and stingy. Plastics, glass protection everywhere. Generic French antique furniture. Open every day. Just pay, look and get out. Lots of doggies crumpled in not a small space. Basically a rather sad place. One of... More

Interesting history with lovely grounds this castle is furnished so you can see it could be lived in. Apparently one side of the castle is still inhabited and family photos appear in the viewing part. Hunting still apparently occurs here and there are hunting dogs on site as well as a Tin Tin exhibition. Definitely worth visiting.

We visited this chateau on Monday 2 January 2017. The chateau was easy to find and parking was free and in the grounds. The visit staff were very friendly and helpful and information leaflets were available in several languages, including French and English. The chateau was warm and comfortable to walk around. What made this chateau particularly interesting was the... More

There is so much to see -- the gorgeous chateau with centuries of history, beautiful formal gardens, the growing garden and of course the hunting dogs. One of my three most popular properties in the Loire Valley. We love going there in late fall -- beautiful nature and the chateau is decorated for Christmas.

You must go to the dogs meal at 11:30. Better to arrive around 11:15 AM. If you are from Canada, do not take the boat ride. The trees are nice but we have the same in Canada. The rooms a well decorated with old furniture. The restaurant in the park is okay for a snack and the prices are good.

This 1630ish chateau is very important because it is shown as if the current resident heir, Marquis de Vebrayd snd his family, were in the next room. Remember, the ownership of the Loire chateaus changed hands frequently, usually for good reason. The furnishings are remarkable and the audio tour tracks with a lovely pace to enjoy the entire facility. The... More

A beautiful, privately-owned Chateau which is very well maintained. It contains a lot of period furniture and objects and the gardens are huge and very pretty. Don't miss seeing the kennels and the feeding of the hounds - very impressive. And we also enjoyed a lovely lunch here.

We visited the Chateau on an organized tour with a very knowledgeable guide. We enjoyed walking around the chateau and knowing that a family still lives here and has. Here you can find a botanical garden, kennels for the dogs and the chateau itself in all its splendor. Over 100 dogs live at Cheverny and we visited the kennels to... More
