Chateau of Chateaudun, Chateaudun
(4.1/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • Excellent visit in week of vacation for 3 adults and 2 children (10 and 7 years old) led by a young guide mastering his subject that he does not forget to adapt to young visitors. Bravo for his explanations throughout an exciting journey in time and history. The Castle-fortress of Châteaudun presents a magnificent architectural ensemble well highlighted, surrounded by an interesting garden herbs and dominating the Dormouse and the city. A visit without hesitation!
