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. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Chateaudun holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Chateau of Chateaudun and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
Chateau of Chateaudun reviews
We arrived around 12;30 so we missed the last tour until 2:00 which was a disappointment but did not take away from the spectacular view when arriving from the north. The Chateau is breathtaking...

A great place to visit. Wander around the empty chateau and Chapel. The grounds and garden are well kept and the high rooms give you some great views over the town. There is a aire de camping car at the bottom of the hill, it has a picnic area by the river and toilet.
Beautiful medieval town with an impressive castle on a rock cliff. The visit to the chateau was free (on the Sunday we visited, I think it is normally about €6.5), and included all premises, the chapel and the dungeon tower. There are guided tours (free as well, at least that day) every hour, but only in French. A good 1-day visit and not too far from Paris.
If you visit Châteaudun be sure you come in time, unfortunately we didn't. So the advice they gave was too come back, either midday our the next day, so we could enjoy everything. So therefore the 4 stars for their honesty. Unfortunately we weren't able to go back. But the outside and surroundings were great. The medieval centre they could put the same beautiful flowers as in centre Ville, that would be a real asset 😉
Very pretty little aire by the Loire, with impressive view of the chateau. Toilets, water and campervan service point. Room for about 10 campers. The town is walking distance.
The museum is ok but not more than ok
