We were recommended to visit by a friend and were blown away. Beautiful setting and incredibly well kept local landmark. Easily navigated and lots to see, where were the crowds?! Would benefit from a small snack offering.

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.

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

We went on a very hot day so the coolness inside the chateau was very welcome. The chateau tour was without a guide but easy to follow. Several stairways, beautiful furniture and wall coverings, interesting information sheet in different languages. The gardens are well tended...More
