  • Spectacular! After a wonderful visit to Biron Castle we took the road for gavaudun! The Valley is superb and deserves what "we care. Great cliffs and rock hidden by vegetation... When you get to the village the surprise is happy! A large stone ship dominates you. The village is lovely. And tour of the Dungeon is awesome! Even though we had moderately confidence on the floor of the terrace's wooden panoramic Summit. In any case it was a nice visit. There is incredible potential in this Valley!

  • Excellent, very interesting and passionate guide to the story... An architecture out of the ordinary, and it's a dip in archaeology... looks good. Don't change anything, that's a real walk in the middle ages
