TOWN PRESENTATION

Between Burgundy and Champagne, Châteauvillain is located 22 km from Colombey-les-Deux-churches, village dear to General De Gaulle. The city is ideally situated on the road linking the north and the south of France at 17 km from the A5 motorway (exit 23).

Châteauvillain benefits since December 6, 2012 the national label "small town character".


SIGHTSEEING

The image Châteauvillain is most often associated with the Deer Park of 272 hectares which will delight walkers, but it would be reductive to confine the city atour this one. Indeed, the history of the medieval town through the centuries like an epic in itself deserves a visit.

Inscribed in stone its 2.6 kilometers of fortified enclosures of the 12th and 14th centuries, at the foot of its battlements at the top of his twenty towers (there were once 60), as well as in its maze of alleys and walkways, this amazing story just waiting to unfold.

Charmingly nestled in a bend of the river Aujon, Châteauvillain is also a city of gardens bloom, nestled in the old ditches dug in the limestone rock.

The small museum of the city housed in the Tower of the audience to discover, among other things, the model room of the castles of the city. Guides lead you on not lords Châteauvillain: first Jean, Duke de Vitry, the Duke of Penthièvre (grand-son of Louis the 14th and Madame de Montespan) every day at 16h, 1 July to 31 August and go outside during the summer. 1 July to 31 August: two permanent exhibitions and three temporary exhibition halls of the Tower Auditorium are open every day from 14h to 19h (Free).

ATTRACTIONS, LEISURES AND ACTIVITES AROUND

Castle Dinteville: near Châteauvillain in a narrow valley leading to the Valley of the Dawn nearby Castle Dinteville Property of the Marquis of town Bauge and his wife, has a dual personality. Austere facade to look like typical military north of 16th century architecture, sober elegance of classic 18th century south. Approaching closer, the observer, to discover what a genius architect, succeeds in his time, through sham (fake windows painted plaster), the addition of pilasters or d ' embrasures to give a prominent 18th appearance at the severe facade of the sixteenth.
