Trip Planner: Europe / France / Centre-Val de Loire / Eure-et-Loir / Chateaudun / 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.

Jolie bâtisse qui retrace en ses murs des siècles d'histoire. Nous sommes arrivés trop tard pour visiter le donjon mais le reste vaut la peine même si les pièces sont peu meublées ce qui est courant. ... more »Pretty building that traces its walls of centuries of history. We arrived too late to visit the Dungeon but the rest worth it even if the pieces are little furnished which is common. But this does nothing to the interest of the visit to the Castle too little known.

Visite libre agréable qui se complète avec la visite guidée du donjon incluse dans le prix. Petite boutique sympa en sortie. more »Nice free visit which comes complete with guided tour of the Dungeon included in the price. Small friendly shop in output.

Très beau château de l'extérieur, mais reste malheureusement une coquille vide (outre ses tapisseries uniques). À visiter ou à contourner si vous êtes en visite à Châteaudun ! more »Very beautiful castle from the outside, but unfortunately remains an empty shell (in addition to its unique tapestries). To visit or work around if you're visiting in Châteaudun.

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.
