France's Cheverny castle: Nobility through the ages
Issued on: Modified:
We take you to discover a magnificent stately home located in France's Loire Valley. The Château of Cheverny is listed as a historical monument and it also inspired Tintin creator Hergé for the family home of Captain Haddock. One in three visitors to Cheverny comes for the world of Tintin, an important source of income. The same family has carefully maintained the castle and grounds for more than six centuries, with each generation laying a new stone to the edifice.
