“From the sumptuous décors created according to the wishes of Diane de Poitiers, to the extravagances of the Princess of Broglie, from Nini’s medallions to Francis Poulenc’s recitals, from Nostradamus to Germaine de Staël, from the Henri Duchêne Park to the Garden Festival, Chaumont-sur-Loire has always been at the cutting edge of artistic creativity, elegance and fantasy. Remaining totally respectful of this rich artistic history, the Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire puts on a lively and diversified programme throughout the year, related to the link between art and nature, in the Château, in the grounds and of course in the framework of the Garden Festival.”

Winter – New in 2017-2018, Chaumont-sur-Loire’s Arts and Nature Centre is devoting all its winter exhibitions to photography  –  the works of seven photographers, each expressing their unique viewpoints on landscape and nature, will be presented across more than 2000 square metres of exhibition space in the Château itself and its farmyard.
