Domaine de Chaumont sur Loire
Overlooking the river and surrounded by greenery, the Domain of Chaumont-sur-Loire is at the heart of the cultural landscape of the Loire Valley, listed as a UNESCO world heritage site.
Since 2008, Chaumont-sur-Loire’s Centre for Arts and Nature has been a unique place for cultural exchange, especially in the fields of art and garden design. This unique location has a triple identity – heritage, art and gardens – offering visitors an all-round cultural experience. The Domain of Chaumont-sur-Loire is an unusual place, a sort of “artistic utopia” that is both multi-disciplinary and multi-sensory. Its challenging, yet inclusive programme attracts a variety of audiences from all countries and generations, both experts and amateurs together.
Open 363 days of the year, it is a lively place all year round and is constantly evolving. The year revolves around three major events: the Art Season and the International Garden Festival in spring and summer, and the Chaumont-Photo-sur-Loire photography exhibitions that take place in the autumn and winter. Between these highlights of the year, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy both the beauty of the place and exceptional creative experiences.
