Chateau of Chateaudun, 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.

  • The castle is quite interesting to visit allowing you to see the evolution of a castle over different periods, otherwise the town of Châteaudun is really no interest

  • We had a guide for two, in other words a private tour. Guide to exciting and interesting. Despite a polar cold, we spent almost 3 hours in this castle, under the snow. Superb!

  • Really pleased with the visit to the Castle, the home is also nice. Few visitors that day how wonderful to feel like to explore only a castle haunted by a magnificent exhibition. Good surprise for us. Recommended for children and adults. more than reasonable rates.

  • Great overnight camper stop chateau lovely, very peaceful with the river, facilities clean
  • Interesting place to visit. The view over the town from the terrace is spectacular. Look out for the fossils in the marble on the staircase.
  • 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.
  • Excellent Château to look round with some wonderful tapestries. More English explanations would make it better especially the audio room with information about the tapestries. Be warned though - very steep steps and a lot of them. Especially the stairway from the Motorhome Aire / Car Park. There is another way up but the narrow roads are extremely steep and cobbled. Very limited access for wheelchairs and mobility scooters. Very helpful staff with quite good English spoken.
  • Great visit for €6
