Address Château de Cheverny 41700 Cheverny, France

Second most visited castle after Chambord, Cheverny completed its construction in 1634.

Located in Sologne in the commune of Cheverny, the castle of classical style was built on the plans of the architect Jacques Bougier.

Classified as a historical monument since 1840, it is made of Bourré stone, a local tufa stone. Its interiors are priceless, notably its dining room decorated with 34 painted wooden panels representing the story of Don Quixote, but also its imposing grand staircase with a right rise, or its vestibule, its large living room or its king’s room. The latter was used, like many rooms, by Hergé to imagine the castle of Moulinsart.

The architectural ensemble was also used as the basis for the Volban family castle in the animated series Glass Fleet.
