Episode 4 - The Chateau of Cheverny
Alongside Blois and Chambord, Cheverny is one of the Loire valley's most famous chateaux. Lending its traits to Marlinspike, Captain Haddock's chateau, it is known to have inspired the cartoonist Hergé. The chateau of Cheverny, built during the first half of the 17th century, has been in the Hurault family for 600 years. They have taken care of saving the chateau's furniture and have maintained the decoration, for an authentic visit of the chateau as it was in its debuts. The white freestone and the Bourré stone give the chateau de Cheverny its young, bright aspect.Climbing the main stairway.
