Trip Planner: Europe / France / Centre-Val de Loire / Eure-et-Loir / Chateaudun / Historic Sites / Chateau of Chateaudun
Built between the 12th and 16th centuries, Chateau of Chateaudun shows off its origins as a 12th-century fortress overlooking the Loire River Valley. Perched on a limestone outcrop, this converted castle underwent renovations adding outstandingly authentic Gothic, feudal, and Renaissance architectural elements. The main roofing has a Gothic style, and inside, a finely wooden carved staircase remains from this period. Today, the castle includes the chapel, the Dunois wing, the Longueville wing, and a large keep that is 31 m (100 ft) high and 17 m (59 ft) in diameter.

Passed the Chateau on my way to Santiago de Compostela. It can be seen from far away, sitting on its rock, and it's as beautiful as majestic. more »
They are missing out on providing a great experience here. Lovely chateaux but no furniture, just great big empty rooms. Just a load of period dresses hanging about. They could have done so much more.... more »
This castle is well worth the entrance fee. There are interpretative signs in English. I visited the castle in July 2015 more »
Really exciting place where you want to come back ... have been there several times over the past 8 years and you can see that it is improving continuously. In addition, entering the price is fine and you can pack your car close to. I would like to recommend that you go in and see the place ... and maybe a trip into the square in the city center, which is within walking distance of the castle.
Fantastic château, very historic. Very friendly and helpful staff with good English language. Write ups and information leaflets etc all in English as well as French.
The biggest attraction of the city, beautiful gardens and renovated castle. Entrance at a fee.
VirreohReally beautiful and rich history. Was a little disappointed, however, because all the rooms were completely empty, and almost all signs were in French only. There was even a guided tour in slottornet, who was also only in French.
Colette louchezWe n unable to visit it because of the party s sui there that day the but a great city and a great atmosphere
