DOMAIN OF CHEVERNY

The Domain of Cheverny is located in the Centre Val de Loire region, not too far from the Châteaux of Blois and Chambord. Recognized as the most magnificently furnished of the Loire châteaux, the Château of Cheverny's richness of decoration and its numerous pieces of marvellous furniture are relentlessly astonishing.

ESSENTIALS

A mythical château

The splendid interior decoration of the château is the work of a craftsman from Blois named Jean Monier. He had been a beneficiary of Marie de' Medici who sent him to Italy in order to perfect his talent. Upon his return, Marie de' Medici hired him to work on the Palace of Luxembourg. After its completion, he returned to his hometown of Blois where he was crowned with well-deserved success. He was then called upon to exert his talent at Cheverny.
