Chiverny

Chiverny

Chiverny is another hunting chateau, but the family who owns it still lives in part of it. There is a moat that circles the castle, but it was dry when we visited.


The castle is fully furnished and very homey compared to the other ones we saw. Desperado is a furniture maker as well as a construction manager and he was going crazy over the woodwork.


The bedrooms all had curtains around the beds. It gets pretty cold at night in these chateaux.


Yep, that's the kitchen fireplace. It's where all the cooking took place. Look at the sweet little oven to the right of it. I bet you could make some good bread in there.


This place had some really cool armor and weapons, a whole room full of them.


Like I said, it's a hunting lodge. And they still hunt there. The dogs were taking a nap.
