Castle stays on the rock among fields, that's why it is visible for many kilometres around
At the beginig castle consisted of only one tower, but from time to time castle was growing. In XV century Jean de Chaudenay had given castle Châteauneuf to his advisor Philippe Pot, who rebuilted it and castle looked like as we can see in ourdays. In 1936 the last owner presented it to the state

As the castle owned by state (by Burgundy, if to be precise) it works as an ordinary museum - all year round except main holidays and mondays. In winter time, from october to may, it is open from 10 till 12.30 and from 14.00 till 17.45, and booking office is closing 30 and 45 minutes before. In summer time the castle is open from 10 till 12.30 and from 14.00 till 18.45. The price of full ticket is 5 euros.
That's a pity but this large building in inside yard had lost its interiors but it still had remains of fireplace, windows and partitions

Visitors of the castle can walk around the village - one of the most beautiful in France, but I will write about it separately.
Another castle close to Châteauneuf is Comarin
