Commarin Castle - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Côte-d'Or

On the Historic Route of the Dukes of Burgundy, in Côte-d'Or, stands a castle that has belonged to the same family for over 900 years. This is Commarin Castle, a delightful blend of remarkable architecture! It has always been lived in, never sold or pillaged, even during the Revolution. Each owner and each century has left a mark without detracting from what was built before. This makes it a unique and quite exceptional monument. Moreover, with its period interior decoration, it offers a perfect representation of the French nobility's way of life in the 18th century. The furniture is original and during your guided tour, you can admire beautiful old tapestries, as well as paintings from the Italian and French schools. Other interesting features of the castle include two round towers from the medieval period, which are in harmony with a main building from the early 18th century.

Commarin Castle is still surrounded by a water-filled moat, which gives it a certain charm, and a vast woodland park that makes for a lovely stroll…

Additional information
Commarin Castle

Located near Châteauneuf, in Côte-d'Or, the castle of Commarin is one of the few not to have been sold or looted during the French Revolution. Owned by the same family for over 900 years and still inhabited, the building was rebuilt between the 17th and 18th centuries on the remains of a 14th century building whose moats and two round towers can still be admired.

Listed as an historic monument, the castle of Commarin today presents unique furniture and objects from the 16th century, revealing a style imposed by Marie-Judith of Vienna, its owner in the Age of Enlightenment. Member of the Historical Route of the Dukes of Burgundy, the site notably reveals to its visitors a very fine collection of tapestries, Italian and French school paintings, as well as a 16th century terracotta Entombment.

A regular building of classical inspiration, the castle of Commarin is revealed in the form of a central dwelling flanked by two wings and surrounded by a magnificent park to explore after discovering the interior. A shop, a dining room and a terrace are also available to enjoy a meal or a drink with a view of this exceptional heritage.
