Chaudenay Castle

Château de Chaudenay

Chaudenay Castle, locally known as Château de Chaudenay, lies in the village of Chaudenay-le-Château in the Côte-d'Or department in France.

Chaudenay Castle dates back to the 12th century when it was probably built by Jean de Chaudenay, first mentioned in 1131, who later that same century also built Châteauneuf Castle for one of his sons. Nothing of his castle remains to this day however. The large ruined keep on the east end dates back to the 14th/15th century. The other buildings and towers date back to the 16th century.

In its heyday the castle would have had 6 towers. It is also said that the mysterious Man in the Iron Mask was held in the Gissey Tower of the castle for some time during the 17th century.

Sadly enough, this is all the historical information I was able to find. If you know more, please mail me.

At present Chaudenay Castle is a private home and therefore can not be visited. Too bad, I really would have liked to visit it.
