This beautiful castle is like a fairy tale castle to me. Beautifully decorated, beautiful history (worth taking the guided tour) and magnificent garden that you have to time to enjoy. The garden part has some interesting exhibition and to entertain the children you can ask for a particular booklet.
Massive gorgeous gardens, multiple exhibitions, farm, grounds, stables, everything. Fairytale setting especially in the fog. Just a must visit.
I could have spent 2 days here. For several months of the year they hold a garden exhibition. Over 20 gardens were on display, smallish gardens, artisan gardens, formal and recycled gardens, veg gardens, artistic gardens. Amazing. We started off walking around the woodland garden where they had various amazing art installations. The chateau was lovely. Beautiful. Unusually they had... 更多
On the tenth day of our visit to the Loire Valley, we arrived at the Chateau Chaumont and were captivated instantly by the outdoor sculptures situated along a large circle of grounds to the right of the entrance. To get to these stand-alone pieces, we had to pass a few small buildings, each of which invited us in to view... 更多
This was our fourth visit to the International Garden Festival that takes place at the chateau de Chaumont every year. Each year there is a different theme for the gardens, this year it is "Gardens for the coming century" and looks at the challenges and opportunities facing the world through the medium of gardening. The show gardens were very attractive... 更多

First of all, it was a half hour walk from the train station and a ten minute walk uphill from the entrance to the chateau - a few older members from our group really struggled with this. The first sight of the chateau was, however, breathtaking. I enjoyed the... 更多
Lovely chateau in a stunning location overlooking the Loire. Superb Disney style chateau - looks like the real deal! with some lovely rooms and artefacts within. Great gardens to stroll around as well as numerous art exhibitions.
What a treat this has been! We spent six delightful hours in the eclectic garden festival - offers a mixture of tastes, but worthwhile just to discuss; the castle and the sculpture park. The restaurant (Book on arrival) was an unexpected bonus. We are foodies and this ticked many boxes from quality of food both in source, taste and presentation.... 更多
One of the main features of this chateau is the garden festival - dozens of small show gardens with different themes and by different designers. These are worth the visit on their own(although when we went - late August - they were looking past their best). The chateau is beautiful and in a stunning location overlooking the Loire and is... 更多
This chateau is beautiful and really interesting. We went there on a hot sunny day and had to queue for a while as the security is quite strict and the guard searched everyone's bags and pockets (fair enough - but it took ages). The gardens are stunning - lots of little show gardens by different designers, it's really interesting and... 更多
