Château de Chaumont : Michelin's recommendations
A precursor of Blois and Chenonceau, this charming château also has a charming 19C landscaped park, fine stables and the popular international garden festival. Inside, the apartments of Catherine de Médicis and Diane de Poitiers recall their rivalry. Note the spectacular 17C majolicaware depicting hunting scenes in the salle du conseil, and in the library - or cabinet de Ruggeri (the queen’s astrologer) - a fine collection of 18C medals by Nini.
