Lovely Chateau in the Dordogne, well laid out and with a good free guide in your mother tongue. Allow 2-3 hrs for a leisurely stroll exploring this fine Chateau.

in the beautiful surroundings of the Dordogne river this very well preserved but not very well known little castle is ready to be discovered. It can be visited at your own pace, which I always refer, and good translations are available in different languages. The...More

This 13th century castle looks like every film-set castle you've ever seen! It's situated alone on the top of a hill with obvious defence in mind. Intact walls and a big gateway, you could imagine "Game of Thrones" using it as a set. It has...More

There are grander chateaux to visit in the Dordogne but this gem is presented a lot better than many others. No audio guide, but at the gate you will be offered a sheet with a translation of enough of the panels in French to make...More

Gazing over the countryside from the walls of the Chateau you could imagine how it was, defending against attacking forces with a majestic view over the surrounding land. Well worth a visit, with interesting, views rooms and history.

We rode our bikes up a steep hill to be greeted by the sight of the chateau perched on the hilltop. There weren't many people there, but on entering found that it dramatically exceeded our expectations. The tour is self guided (with good English translations)...More

This beautifully positioned Chateau, on rolling ground overlooking the Dordogne above the viullage of Sainte Mondane, offers strength in its thick stone and double encircling walls but it also offers charm and comfort in its impeccably furnished rooms with elegant period furniture.
