Visited here with my family as part of a riverboat cruise excursion. From the river it is impressive, but even more so as you get closer and finally arrive at the castle itself. Note: It definitely is a climb, so wear good walking shoes and...More

Stunning views of the Seine from this old castle. Bits of it have been rebuilt and there are interesting information boards. The views are the best bit though.

We were staying in Les Andelys and picked a cooler day for the steep walk up to the castle, but the effort was worth it. We just managed to miss a large group from the Viking River Cruise boat, luckily, as they had finished. Steeped...More

The hike to Chateau Gaillard is strenuous and not for individuals who have difficulty walking or health issues. Once you arrive at the top the views are stunning. The history behind the Chateau proved interesting to say the least. It amazes me that a Chateau...More

As others have commented , it's a bit of a hike to the ruins but well worth the trip, when you realize that what remains of the fort is merely a third of the original structure you really appreciate the major construction effort of everyone...More

We drove to the little town of Les Andelys. If you drive it is a bit confusing since you need to take a one-way road on the back side of town to get to the castle. When you get to the top of the hill...More
