  • You learn a lot from this castle that exists for almost 1000 years. A turbulent past and a beautiful collection of paintings. The people who did it live are also.

  • I came to Dourdan with the intention of visiting the Chateau. Given that it's built in the Middle Ages, it's a pretty well preserved piece of history. One can stroll into the courtyard of the Chateau ...  more »

  • Was closed, cold and rainy, no shops open. Almost certainly due to the time of year/day of the week. Have been before, was nice then - the boulangerie across the road in the square was lovely.
  • Beautiful, must do if you happen to be in Dourdan! Can park in the square nearby.
  • Nice old chateau fort in the middle of a charming little town. Too bad they shortened the walls and towers, though given the disrepair over the centuries probably makes walking under the ramparts a lot safer. Park and take a hike along the Orge river to the nearby forest, the former royal hunting grounds since the days of Hugh Capet, the first King of the Franks.
  • Great old school castle, and really nice village, but everything related to the castle requires payment.
  • Cool
