Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 140+ 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.

  • Castle to visit but a pity that it is so difficult to have a tour in October! What makes that we can't visit the Dungeon. Rather disappointed because the fare is the same with or without guided tour and nothing is no substitute for the explanation of a guide especially for parts which are not accessible free visit. So go ahead in high season.

  • over the discovery of the castle the imagination of another time invades. the facades of each part are beautiful, there are a lot of details that enhance the beauty of the place. exposure of the large Royal robes is a big plus! next time I'll do the tour to visit the Dungeon!

  • I have already mentioned the interest of this castle at the edge of the Loire. As the website does not mention it, I add that you try to be there for one of the two visits guided the Dungeon and the attic at 11 h or 15 h - visits without extra charge, but impossible to do without the guide: the discovery of the Dungeon and the attic, with the points of view, is really exciting. Allow an hour and a half and 160 steps to climb.

  • Very beautiful book. The State is exceptional with a demented historic preservation... Princely suite rooms are notable (with a bit of luck your guide will get you a short visit). The part to visit without a guide is to do but rather poor: very little decoration.

  • Gothic architecture from 1600 on a la1200 find ourselves here, oversized rooms, stairways that climbed Knights with horses up to the upper floors of the building, cityscape Chateaudun you can admire the Tower makes the Castle a place of tourist attraction of must-see attraction. ☺ I recommend.
