The Château de Cheverny's owners : Constance and Charles-Antoine de Vibraye with their children.

In 1922 it was one of the first private homes to open its doors to the public. Visitors can appreciate the splendour and delight of real life in a castle. The owners invite you to discover this fantastic and vivid heritage: from the botanical park to the magnificent interior of the Château; the hunting dog kennels to Tintin's exhibition and the gardens through to the forest.


The Château displays a wonderful range of furniture and interior decoration, all of which are remarkably well preserved.

The private apartments on the first floor convey the French ‘art de vivre’- art of living with rooms such as the birth chamber, the nursery, the private dining room and others.

Many treasures can be found at Cheverny like a 17th century Gobelin tapestry for example, on display in the Arms room or the Louis XIV chest of drawers in the Boulle style.

Come and discover the fine details and finishings of the Château’s interior decoration before visiting the Park, the Vegetable garden, the Apprentices' garden, the Tulip garden and the magical maze.
