Internationally renowned thanks to its famous castle, which La Grande Mademoiselle, the daughter of Gaston d’Orléans, called the “Enchanted Palace”. However, Cheverny is also a commune which is firmly oriented towards tourism and preservation of the environment.
In protected landscapes, you can devote your time to leisure pursuits which are typical of countryside holidays (18 hole golf course, horse-drawn carriage rides and horseriding, hot-air balloon flights, sampling local products, etc.).
Your stay will be made all the more enjoyable with the numerous types of accommodation on offer (Bed & Breakfast, rural gîtes, camp sites, hotels). A stay of several days is a must to relax in the natual setting of woodland, moorland and vineyards, and to cultivate your mind by visiting our many places of interest:
The Château de Cheverny, with its organised activities and its famous Trophy Hall,
The Gentilhommière de Troussay (Troussay Mansion), and its Musée de Sologne (Sologne Museum).
A rich local and rural heritage :
12th century church, and its caquetoire (conversation chair),
washhouse and its picnic area,
small castles, and vast bourgeois mansion houses to explore on short outings or longer outings.
