THE KINGS CHAMBER
Every castle in Touraine kept a beautiful and confortable chamber reserved for the sovereign. King François 1st would have stayed in this chamber following his hunt in the Loire Valley.
Luminosity and colours characterise this Royal Chamber, so typical of the Loire Valley: chestnut beams in sensational XVIth century colours, furniture, paintings and rare tapestries dating from XVI and XVIIth centuries…
Renovated and refurbished during the XIXth century. The castle’s kitchen was used until 1977, the date the last chef left the establishment. A XIXth century stove with a plate warmer, a mini oven, an ice cream maker, moulds for cheese making, a collection of more than 150 copper saucepans and elements from this period… The castles kitchen is ready to re start its service!
THE DINING ROOM
This dining room is decorated with beams painted in grey monochrome, a sign of mourning, following the death of King Henri III, (the same as the ceiling of his wife’, queen Louis de Lorraine’s chamber at Chenonceau castle). The table is laid with the family’s porcelain dinner service and silverware.
