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
An interesting French chateau with caves hewn into the cliff where German munitions were stored during WWII. The town and river are very picturesque.

We spent a lovely morning in this sleepy village as part of a Viking River Cruise. We loved it. We toured the garden, and climbed to the top of the medieval keep.

Great town to visit. Quiet and relaxing. Good also for climbing lovers on the way to the tower The Castle is authentic and very well preserved.Right now there is a comics exposition going. Good to visit
We liked the small town. Staris in the castle are challenging, but if you can make it, the view is amazing.
