Chateau de Cheverny Châteaux de la Loire – UNESCO World Heritage Sites

In 1914, the owner opened the chateau to the public, one of the first to do so. Chateau Cheverny remains a top tourist attraction to this day, renowned for magnificent interiors and its collection of furniture, tapestries, and objets d’art. A pack of some seventy dogs are also kept on the grounds and are taken out for hunts twice weekly. Only a portion of the original fortified castle possibly remains in existence today.   – Wikipedia
