Hounds and chocolate

Who knew that the highlight of the visit to the family-owned Chateau de Cheverny would be . . . a dog. There are over a 100 hounds in the kennels out front - ready to go for a hunt.

And the chocolate? Just a few kilometers away, the town of Bracieux is home to the Max Vauché chocolate factory. Guided visits illustrate all aspects of chocolate making - from growing and harvesting the chocolate beans, through all the stages of transformation until it ends up in your mouth.

Check out this life-sized chocolate woman!
