Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Visit the 17th-century Château de Cheverny in France’s Loire Valley. It’s one of the finest châteaux in France, well-preserved with beautiful furniture and attractive interior decorations. For many it’s the most perfectly proportioned chateau in all of France, the very best of French classical architecture.
But many know Cheverny for its hounds – a cross between an English Foxhound and French Poitevin (French pointer). There are more than 100 of them at the château and they are still used for hunting.
You can visit the hounds all day long but it’s their daily feeding, the Soupe des Chiens, that is quite a spectacle…
April 1st – September 14th the dogs are fed daily at 11.30am. September 15th – March 31st they are fed at 11.30am but only on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
