Castle
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.

  • Between the Castle and the renaissance we feel closer to the Loire. Unfortunately a wing on the 2 was in the works, so I was able to enjoy that ground-floor kitchen with large vaulted rooms but empty and the hanging garden. I recommend a walk in the streets with a typical average age. If you park you down your legs are echaufferont on the 200 steps of the staircase saint Pierre.

  • The entrance to the castle is 4.50 euros but it is empty. There is more no furniture or tapestry as the chapel also other than an old fresco. The hanging garden is original with the view of the Loir. The tower is in perfect condition but a hundred markets!

  • I have made more than 10 visits in this castle. Each time, there was a new room open to the public. There are kitchens, prisons, the monument of the prisoners, the Dungeon, the medieval garden, the hanging gardens. The Chapel is beautiful. And the must is to have access to the attic of the Castle where there are apartments of "small staff". Rare visit.
