In just a few years, the Domain of Chaumont-sur-Loire has become a must-see in the field of art and gardens.Come and enjoy an unforgettable experience in Chaumont-sur-Loire, in a landscape listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Since its acquisition by the Centre Region in 2007 during the transfer of State heritage to regional authorities, the Domain of Chaumont-sur-Loire has developed rapidly, both in terms of the increase in visitor numbers and the growth in its national and international reputation, which makes the Domain a "stand-out" location on the Loire Valley châteaux circuit.
The site's new "three-fold identity" comprises a major historic and heritage site – the Château –, new trends in global landscape design – the International Garden Festival – and in contemporary design – the Centre of Arts and Nature as well as special commissions created on site.
And this three-fold identity of the Domain of Chaumont-sur-Loire – heritage, art and gardens – makes it a unique place to visit on the Loire châteaux circuit; experts now consider it to be the largest indoor and outdoor art centre in France.
In addition, it has a number of certifications including: “Jardin Remarquable” (Remarkable Garden), “Qualité Tourisme” (Tourism Quality), “Centre Culturel de Rencontre” (Cultural Meeting Centre) and has received 3 Michelin stars as a cultural event.
