The Château de Cheverny - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Loir-et-Cher

Open to the public all year round, the Château de Cheverny, still lived in today, is a building of Classical style dating from the 17th century. The interior of the château, full of magnificent furniture, objets d'art and tapestries, is exceptional and not to be missed. Visitors can explore very sumptuous rooms like the king's bedroom, the drill hall, the library and the tapestry salon.

The Château de Cheverny is also unusual in that it was a source of inspiration for Tintin illustrator Hergé. Minus its two outer wings, this majestic residence closely resembles Marlinspike Hall, the country residence of popular Tintin character Captain Haddock. A permanent exhibition called "Les Secrets de Moulinsart" (The Secrets of Marlinspike Hall) is dedicated to the world of Tintin.

The tree-lined park is a very pleasant and relaxing place for a stroll. Tours in electric car or by boat on the canal are also available and make an excellent way of exploring the park and its natural heritage.
