Castle of Cheverny

Local name: Château de Cheverny

Cheverny Castle is located in the Loire Valley. It has been in the hands of the Hurault family for over 600 years. Its baroque furnishings have been preserved almost intact. Baroque, symmetrical and devoid of defensive features is also its external appearance, which distinguishes it from other residences in the Loire Valley.

The castle was built in the 17th century on the property of the Hurault family. Unlike other castles, there were no defensive buildings in the area. The palace was built from scratch. It has a harmonious look typical of French Baroque. The two-storey main body is covered with steep roofs. The side wings cover the multi-field domes. The whole is made of white tuff rocks.

The interiors of the castle have survived almost unchanged from the 17th and 18th centuries. In the dining room, you can admire the Jean Monier wall paintings that are illustrations of the novel The Adventures of Don Quixote. A large living room with a rich furniture collection, a library, daily lounges with magnificent wall coverings and some private apartments are also available for tourists. In the castle you can also see the library and armory. The residence is surrounded by a landscape park and at its back there is a flower garden.
