    The garden is small but lovely. You leave the castle, walk along the side past the gift shop and into the garden. There are benches, a rose garden, a small pigeonniere, chickens of varying kinds and interesting sculptures all between the Bievre river and the chateau. The Bievre is a stream at this point and you could hop across it. In the distance is another chateau.

    If you are going to Cheverny, this is a great stop on the way or on the way home. The two chateaus are completely different in style and attitude.

    St. Eloi is right behind the chateau and is definitely worth a visit. It's in the heart of the tiny village and there are sidewalk cafes in the little square.

    It's also a great place to wait for the chateau to open if it's raining outside. 8^)

    The inside of the chateau was decorated for Hallowe'en since we were there in October. There were exhibits for and by various classes of children which were all interesting. Since it was a dark day and a dark castle, most of my photos were taken at a resolution too high to upload them on my very slow dial-up connection. I've attached two photos and someday when we have high speed, I'll add some more.

    It's a great chateau and really deserves more attention. It would be especially good if you were traveling with children.
