French lifestyle

.On 1 December, at Château de Cheverny, discover the many facets of “French lifestyle”, famed and envied throughout the world for centuries!

You will be able to take part in the free conference at 2.30pm in the Orangerie on “The art of receiving, or French etiquette”, including an introduction to “The art of receiving in the Renaissance period”.

The different steps of a dinner invitation, combining splendour and simplicity, will be revealed in this indescribable atmosphere that still governs this mysterious and closed world of French private castles today:

• The rules of the dinner invitation

• Guests’ arrival

• Protocol and decorum at the table

• Cutlery

• Conduct at the table

• Conversation at the table

• After dinner

• Guests’ departure


“An invitation to a dinner in town requires very particular rules and mastering them is not optional. It is a complex exercise which requires tact and finesse; there is little room for improvisation. Respecting the codes will make you the ideal guest, one who is a pleasure to receive”, states the Marquise de Vibraye, owner of Château de Cheverny. She emphasises: “Our country is a model when it comes to tableware, gastronomy, sophistication, style and elegance. Manners and breeding are the substance of our international fame. For Château de Cheverny, it is an obligation to celebrate this famous French art de vivre! ”
