Regional Estate of Chaumont-sur-Loire

 An oasis of natural greenery perched on a promontory 40 metres above the wild Loire, Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire is the property of the Centre Region and the gates to its château and grounds are open to you all year round – and, from April to the end of October, those to its unmissable International Garden Festival.

Everything here is an invitation to immerse yourself in art and artistry. Wander the pathways taking you across the grounds in discovery of the many contemporary works of art that adorn them, each one as unexpected and bewitching as the next – installations in the trees, at every turn of the road, and in the historic confines of the Château itself. At Chaumont-sur-Loire, heritage and creation go hand in hand. In the exhibition galleries, photographs have pride of place, bearing witness to the artistic sensibilities of their creators in their approaches to the world around us – promises of an enthralling visit, a magical blend of art and nature.

So let the magic work! And prolong the spell at the International Garden Festival where, every year, thirty breathtaking new creations interpret a different theme, each in their own way – an intoxicating and exhilarating profusion of plant life!

In 2012, the Domaine is expanding. The 10 hectares of the Prés du Goualoup, designed by the great landscape architect Louis Benech, and the new permanent gardens to be installed there with each passing year will also be awaiting your discovery. An experience out of a dream – 32 hectares of wonders to be explored at your own pace. Come to Chaumont-sur-Loire and know what it is to live beyond the reach of time…
