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

Not the first time I go there but I still like this castle very much. The castle is not very big but well furnished and in very good shape. Until Nov 14th there is a lego exhibition in the entire castle. It's a great addition for kids. The park is gorgeous. The tintin exhibition is nice if you are a... More

My wife really liked this chateau. The rooms were well decorated and interesting. The garden and orangery were nice. The hounds were quite interesting even though I am not a particularly doggie person. I bought a bottle of local wine at a wine shop nearby, Yum.

Chateau Cheverny was a beautiful home and the fact that it had been in the same family for so long made it extra special. I enjoyed the fact that it was till a home and not just a museum. The hunting dogs were really the highlight of our visit though. We very much enjoyed watching the handlers interact with the... More

We spent four days touring the chateaus of the Loire Valley. Our favorite chateau was Chateau de Chenonceau, but the Chateau de Cheverny came in a close second. IMHO this site should be a high priority on any visit to the Loire Valley. The castle is one of the smallest you'll encounter. Every room has been completely restored. Each room... More

Immaculately presented inside and out. The chateau is well worth a visit and the fact that the owner has added interesting historical facts using Lego is a huge plus for children.
