Nous nous sommes mariés au château de Sauveboeuf en juin 2016. Tout, depuis la première rencontre avec M Douce 6 mois avant le mariage qui nous avait alors faut faire le tour du propriétaire, jusqu'à ... more »We got married at the Sauveboeuf Castle in June 2016. Everything from the first meeting with M sweet 6 months before the wedding which we had then to do around the House, until the end of the marriage, was perfect! The castle is a beautiful load of history and pre history. The dinner room is splendid with new chandeliers, exposed beams, paintings of the period, and an amazing view on the courtyard. The night at the time of the dinner, effect and atmosphere guaranteed! We rented the castle for the weekend and sleep 18 friends and family. Majestic, original and comfortable rooms. The Castle also boasts an impressive collection of painting, old, curious, and prehistoric objects. This makes it a unique place. All staff of Sauveboeuf, and in particular Mr. Douce and Mathilde reserved us the best host you could imagine with - private tours of places (what a place!) and the area our guests (we have visited the cave of the gaume background that is one of the latest caves to visit with the original paintings of prehistory - amazing) - recommendations of providers for the day of the wedding (very good caterer) - access to the pool area for the Brunch the next day - use of the kitchen for our preparations - guarding on the wedding night to ensure the safety of children and cars... The day of the wedding, the Sauveboeuf team was listening to us in case of need but remained also very discreet to allow us to take full advantage. In short, the team, as the place was absolutely brilliant and we would never have had a marriage also managed without them. One downside to the castle: the stairs are very old and the steps are worn very slippery. It is not recommended for the elderly and others to avoid slippery shoes... The Dordogne region is quite charming. The food is delicious, very beautiful and soothing landscapes, and opportunities for outdoor activities are very numerous. My wife is American and his family, who had never heard talk of the Dordogne, loved it. A year later, all our friends and family remind us how much they loved the wedding and the Castle. Same with years of research, we could not find a better place!View original

This castle, located halfway between Terrasson and Montignac, at first glance looks ‘a bit off’. Information panels inform you about the bad state it was in when the current owner (a well known French TV personality) found it. Clearly he spend a small fortune to restore the roofs, chimneys, and opening the closed-up windows. It seems there was just not enough budget left for the finishing touches. We walked through the showcase rooms and found some interesting pieces of antique and curiosity, but again some of the furniture and furnishings seem awkwardly misplaced. We had finished most of the self-guided tour when a large 17th century painting in the ‘Oberkampf room’ caught our eye. It depicts the African Maria over seeing a battle field (probably in present day Tunisia) between Christian and ‘Turkish’ forces. The Turks carrying their flag with ‘crescents’ , the information materials explained it was this battle that inspired French bakers to produce their ‘eat the Turks’ ‘croissants’... So far the experience would have hardly warranted ‘3 stars’, but just before the exit into the shop, there is a stair (on the right behind doors) going down to the basement. The vaulted spaces are the oldest surviving parts of the castle and harbor a great surprise. A very large collection of (pre)historic materials, the core of the collection dating back to a time before the ‘prehistory’ was actually recognized. If you visited the sites around Les Eyzies-de-Tayak, read a little and received a passionate introduction to the ‘history of this history’ (Laugerie-haut), a lot starts to fall in place here… It is quite unbelievable how early ‘treasure hunters’ went about ‘excavating’, ‘finding’ and ‘taking away’. In the process distributing/dispersing/disturbing materials. The collection on display is truly spectacular in size and scope, a couple of objects from about every dig between here and Bordeaux! And many objects are truly amazing works of art; carved bones and statuettes, even an oil-lamp from Lascaux cave…these are not the ‘crumbs that fell of the table’. It really makes you wonder what else was carted-off and disappeared into dusty drawers without even the most basic documentation. At least this collection is open to the public, though you need to ‘chance-upon-it’. Good to read there are students from all over the world visiting and studying these objects. They are sure worth it. To be clear; I do not blame the owners for the cavalier methods of the past, in a way the collection is as much (modern) history as the objects on display. Thought provoking.
Franck VerboisA visit to all points of view! M sweet, owner of the Castle and the largest collection of prehistoric objects in the world has made us "live" this period with all the passion and competence that animate it. A beautiful castle in a magnificent environment whose visit was embellished by the encounter of the craftsman responsible for the restoration for several decades. Passionate people, an exceptional welcome... this visit will remain an unforgettable moment.View original

Geneviève BessièresA counselor for the neophytes in prehistory. Guided tour, by the owner of the Castle M. sweet, will then give you the urge to continue your research into the origins of human. In a second part, the visit of the castle with a historic crispy as a good part of our castles of Périgord.View original
