Walked up through CDP village to this ruined castle. Nice view and interesting looking restaurant 2/3 of the way up the hill, which was closed at the time of our visit. Castle itself is merely stones and walks with no internal viewing, and the description...More

It is interesting to see and read about the remnants of this Chateau, but the best feature is the view. You can walk up from the town, but also nice that you can drive right up to the Chateau and it's an easy walk to...More

After tasting wines and indulging in great food one needs a hike, even a short one. The remains of the summer papal palace are easy to spot and worth a short walk up the hill for amazing views and beautiful shots of the town and...More

We visited Chateauneuf during our recent trip to France. After parking the car, we walked up the narrow streets to the castle and were awarded with great views of the valley below.

built in the 13th century by the Popes of Avignon as a summer retreat, positioned on top of the hill looking over the Rhone river valley

Nothing much left. A little more than one wall of ruins. But the view of the Rhone River valley is nice. If you're in the area, go for a look. But not worth a trip on its own.

This place was just average. There really isn't much to this place. It's a part of an old castle that only has two walls remaining. There isn't any information available onsite or any amenities. The views are nice at a couple places overlooking the surrounding...More
