  • The castle is located on a rocky cut. We could not visit him inside since it was closed until the month of April, a penalty.

  • We found this small village of chance traveling in the Dordogne. We stopped to enjoy their ancient beauty. We saw foreign rehabilitating homes. Good place to stop and rest of the trip.

  • Particularly interesting but not suitable to people put off by the "climb". Indeed, it must have a minimum of vitality and it is surprising the disabled parking! Probably is useful in high season at the events taking place at the foot of the Castle?
