Château de Cheverny - note the hunting horn (Cor de chasse), France

The Château de Cheverny has been continuously occupied for 600 years. There have been renovations, but it has always been a home to the family so the rooms are all furnished, many opulently. There are magnificent works of art including paintings, tapestries and statues so it's one of the more exciting châteaux to visit in the Loire. The gardens are very nice but do not rival Chaumont or Villandry. There are activities for children and a special (extra fee) museum for fans of Tin Tin. You can also observe the feeding of the hounds nearly every day except the odd times during hunting season when they are working. Check the web site for feeding times and dates. If you really want to see a superb performance at feeding time, drive to the Abbaye du Val des Choues where their hounds are exceptionally well trained.
