The sun is out but no warmth! 13 degrees – to cold for biking. We visit Chateau Cheverny instead.
This chateau hasn’t got the lightness of Chateau Chenonceau. The dark tapestries make a depressive atmosphere. Although I have to admit the pictures look quite nice.
I liked the dining room best.
The painted ceilings are very special.
Across the beautiful garden with its huge trees we reach the orangery, nowadays quite a nice café.
The Belgian comic book creator Hergé used Chateau Cheverny as a model for his fictional “Château de Moulinsart” (Marlinspike Hall in English) in the “The Adventures of Tintin” books.
