Chateau de Commarque, Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil

While archeological evidence shows people have lived on this site for thousands of years, Chateau de Commarque was built sometime in the early 12th century. Situated on a cliff for defensive purposes, the castle has changed hands--and nationalities--several times over the centuries. One of the original lord's descendants now owns it and has restored the grounds. Take a self or guided tour through the ruins, and peek in on the seasonal workshops that relate to some of the castle's important periods.

  • This castle and the medieval village that surrounds it is for me the most beautiful Dordogne it is located away from roads in a privileged green area. He is patiently restored and offers free or guided tours. See without Hesitation

  • There are few people who know this place full of history; our bed and breakfast owners recommended it. Eesta on the road to les eyzies and the access is from the parking lot by a good walk through the Woods. Arriving is a small Troglodyte caves and a river and the Castle left with more troglodytic houses down. It is interesting to see that this place offers a long tour of history and also a view exceptional. On a sunny day, is the perfect place also for a picnic.

  • We spent an afternoon in the enclosure of the Castle, all dressed as in the past, from the smallest (6 years to the largest...) 72 years) and have revived a few hours time the dances of the past. It was really nice. Hospitality, cakes and drinks... everything was perfect. Thanks for a great time with the family because it is sometimes difficult to find animations for 11 people at the same time! Stéphane
