STABLES OF THE ORANGERIE
A stud for racing horses, but also Percherons Breton shire horses, regularly used for working. The history of the stud farm and the various breeds of horses will be explained, and you'll meet the two presidential horses currently residing in Pompadour. Meet the artists and marvel at their prowess in their performances.
During your visit, you'll discover the history of the castle and the impact that the stud has had on its story through eleven beautifully furnished rooms. You will thus have access, either freely or on a guided tour, to the director's dining room, with its Vermont earthenware, and his bedroom with empire-style furniture restored by cabinetmakers. His office is decorated with a magnificent bureau made to measure in 1865. You mustn't miss the tapestries and the exhibition rooms of the castle.
THE DOMAIN DE CHIGNAC
Discover the history of this unique horse farm in France where the national Pompadour foals are born. It is most exceptionally beautiful in the green setting of springtime.
