France Travel Planner by Tom Brosnahan & Jane Fisher   Château de Beauregard
The Château de Beauregard, near the châteaux of Cheverny and Chambord, is known for its portrait gallery and park.




Château de Beauregard is less well known than its neighbors, Château de Cheverny and Château de Chambord, but it too has plenty to offer the adventurous visitor.

Château de Beauregard is perhaps best known for its Galerie des Illustres. This portrait gallery contains 327 historical portraits. Walking through the gallery can provide you with a lesson in French history, as the portraits are arranged by historical era. The beautiful gallery, with its Delft tiles and painted ceiling, is the centerpiece of a visit to this château.

But Château de Beauregard is also set in a beautiful park has has been named a jardin remarquable, or "remarkable garden," a designation established in 2003.

You might want to combine a visit to Beauregard with other châteaux in the area, including Cheverny, Chambord, and Blois.

As one of the less visited châteaux of the Loire Valley, note that Château de Beauregard tends to close between November and March, though visits can be arranged at other times.
