The Cheverny castle was built in the Baroque style in 1624-1634 by the Royal Chancellor Philippe Hurault, whose heirs own the castle to this day. That's why the castle has preserved the luxurious interiors of the times of Louis XIII. Since 1914 it has been open to tourists.

The castle is quite popular, we were even surprised to see so many tourists here. Perhaps the reason is that the castle appears in the famous comic "The Adventures of Tintin".

Around the castle is a botanical garden with a lake, flowers and various sculptures.

During the Second World War, part of the Louvre's works, in particular the La Gioconda, was kept in the greenhouse.

What is really unusual here is the kennel with dozens of hunting dogs, which regularly participate in demonstration hunts. This breed was bred in the castle and their cost reaches 10 thousand euros.
