Cheverny is a castle near to our town Blois. It was never a royal castle like Blois or Chambord castle, but it was the property of a noble family, the Huraults. And 600 years after, it’s still the property of the same family, which is a rarety in Loire Valley.
The castle interior is really nice and well furnished. The most impressive for the children is the Arms Room, the greatest room of the castle, full of armours, swords and all possible medieval weapons. All rooms and objects are perfectly preserved.

For the amusement of children, the castle proposes a Mystery Game. The children will have to use their memory and their sense of observation the answer several questions, and to find the solution of the final enigma.
The hunting dogs
The owners have a pack of hunting dogs, near 100 hundred beats. Your children will be real surprised to see so many dogs in one time. The dogs are fed at 11.30 am, and it ever a fun time.
