Trip Planner: Europe / France / Ile-de-France / Val-d'Oise / La Roche-Guyon / Chateau de La Roche-Guyon
The tenth-century builders of Chateau de La Roche-Guyon dug the castle into a limestone cliff that overlooks the Seine. It was impossible to see the castle from the river, yet the castle had a wide view of the valley--making it an ideal defensive structure for medieval warfare. The manor house that stands today was built in the 12th century and continued to serve this purpose right up through World War II, when German Field Marshall Rommel made the castle his headquarters. Today, it serves as a museum with guided tours. Use our La Roche-Guyon route planner to arrange your visit to Chateau de La Roche-Guyon and other attractions in La Roche-Guyon.

Chateau de La Roche-Guyon reviews
We decided to visit from our base while in the south of normandy as it fit with our visits to the D-day beaches to see Rommels hq. What a fantastic chateau. Very impressive architecture and... more »
Very interesting chateau on the Seine about an hour drive from Paris. It is a nice drive, easy parking, and when we went we had the chateau to ourselves. Great views of the river and village from... more »
The castle itself is beautiful and so is the surrounding village which is quiet and relaxing to walk around. The castle is built on huge chalk cliffs making the hike up challenging but well worth it. If you are going to Normandy or to Monet's garden in Giverny, La Roche-Guyon is well worth it and I liked it better that Giverny- much less crowded and history is more interesting than art anyway.
Marvelous old chateau, which was rommel's hq in WWII. Wish they had more of the original furniture.
