Chateau of Chateaudun, Chateaudun

(4/5 based on 160 reviews on the web)
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.

  • A beautiful castle! Even with some under renovation you'll what you treat the Peepers. Very few Castle allows a free tour of the parts of dwellings. Kitchen, Court, hanging garden... Everything is there. I unfortunately didn't have time to make the tour of the Dungeon, but I am sure it is of high quality. Very touching old graffiti and a magnificent view of the city.
