Unbelievable castle to visit in Dordogne! Do not miss it! Complete masterpiece! Wear closed shoes and be prepared to climb a lot.

The castle is hidden in the middle of the nature. A nice walk is necessary before to reach an impressive and unexpected fortification, today significantly destroyed. Inside the building still entire there are games made out of wood, to play either children or adults

A LONG walk in from the parking lot takes you to a ruined chateau with little of interest and little explanation of its history and why it is significant. It's an archeological work in progess that may one day be interesting, but there are far better uses of your time in the Dordogne.

Dear Doug B,
I suggest you to come back when it’s open and when we propose all our tours and activities.
It will be much easier to understand this site which is not only a fortified castle but also a prehistoric and troglodytes site.
We would be delighted to welcome you on our open hours.
Regards,
Jean de Commarque

We did not go into the remains of the chateau, but found the troglodyte artifacts more interesting. It's a pretty long walk (15 minutes or so) from the parking lot to the chateau and the access roads to this chateau are very narrow.

Chateau de Commarque is a hillside castle located about 30 kilometres north of Sarlat-la-Caneda; construction began in the 11th Century though two caves in the rocks upon which it is built were carved out and inhabited as much as 6,000 years ago. Now in a state of disrepair, it is gradually being reconstructed in parts to allow visitors safe access and to gradually return it to some semblance of what it once was. Worth the drive to find it and the walk in (and up the many steps and stairs).
