Garden of tulips
Chateau de CHEVERNY - Val de Loire



April 2020

Garden of tulips

Every spring, for the past seven years, the tulip has reigned supreme in the three gardens at Château de Cheverny.

Over 250,000 bulbs are planted, notably to form a vast ribbon of tulips. Enchantment guaranteed!

Imagine this spectacular ribbon: 250,000 tulips covering a length of 250 m and a width of 12 m, in red, pink, yellow, orange, purple and white. A veritable natural work of art which, for the first time, will end in the water feature of the Château gardens.

This splendid display can be discovered in April!
