Grouds of Château de Cheverny
The 100ha/240acre-park is remarkably well tended. It contains a trophy room and kennels, home to a pack of nearly 100 hounds; feeding time is always most exciting. The 18C Orangerie, facing the château's north entrance, hosts receptions and seasonal temporary exhibitions. The former blacksmith's showcases a permanent exhibition where Tintin fans will be delighted to see Professor Sunflower's submarine and Tintin's bedroom.
