Located in the Côte d’Or, equidistance of Dijon and Beaune, Montbard and Semur in Auxois, and only 4 kms from Châteauneuf en Auxois, the Château de Commarin is one of the few castles in France that has never been sold or looted during the French Revolution. Belonging to the same family for more than 900 years, still inhabited, Commarin offers the Visitor the experience of a living castle, always inhabited, installed with refinement in the 18th century.
Originally Maison Forte, Commarin was transformed into a fortified castle during the power of the Dukes of Burgundy. In the 17th century, accompanying the transformations of French architecture, the Château fort was transformed into a residential castle, as it appears today.
In the 19th century the French-style park was transformed into an English-style park. The woodwork of the chapel of the Château de Châteauneuf, then owned by the family Vogüé, is brought back to Commarin and installed in the Chapel of the Castle.
« Les Flâneries du Château de Commarin » is a brand new event of the Castle’s musical season.
