An incredibly living heritage
Have you ever dreamt of living Tintin’s life and passing the doors of Moulinsart Castle ? The Chateau of Cheverny offers you to live this unique experience, in the very place where Hergé once found his inspiration. But Cheverny mainly is one of the most furnished castle in the Loire Valley. It was wonderfully preserved by the same family for over 600 years and invites you to discover a living piece of heritage.
Passing the castle’s walls is like entering a family’s intimacy, whose history is told room after room. The apartments show the French art of living, the children’s toys remind the authenticity of the moments that have taken place there for centuries when the King’s bedroom evokes the stays of several great historical figures.
The gardens of Cheverny are, in all seasons, a delight for the eyes. Magnificent centenary trees border the alleys to be discovered on foot, in an electric cart or even by boat. Do not miss a visit to the dogs kennels to admire the Cheverny hounds, and perhaps behold the surprising daily feeding of the dogs.
“Billions of blisetring blue barnacles!”
Enter finally the world of Tintin and become an actor of his adventures while visiting the exhibition “The secrets of Moulinsart”. From Captain Haddock to Professor Calculus, all major characters are waiting for you for an unforgettable visit!
