  • Gazing over the countryside from the walls of the Chateau you could imagine how it was, defending against attacking forces with a majestic view over the surrounding land. Well worth a visit, with inte...  read more »
  • Castle of exception! Go the visiter(9€). Certainly somewhat away from the "tourist routes" but moving worth the effort. This castle is magnificent. His (no tour) is an additional asset, because if you want to take the time to educate you and you document... you will find many explanations that must be read carefully. Furniture, objects, old books exceptional etc. count 2 hours of visit. Outdoor panorama in +.

  • In the Dordogne there are a lot of castles but if there is one to go visit it is here! last visit him because beside others laze well empty! in more touristy we walk on them during the visit. The Interior is fully furnished, I loved the kitchen all equipped with utensils of the time, the weapon with his armor, his swords, his crossbows room, the cabinet of curiosities with its unusual objects! This castle is beautiful and very well maintained, we had a nice visit!

  • I'm sure the chateau is wonderful but what we don't like is the hours/service. We rode on our bikes up a huge hill to get to the chateau. We locked up our bikes and at 12:25 p.m. walked toward the gates only to have the gate person close it in front of us. The chateau was closed from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. I explained that we were from overseas and this would be the only chance we would have to see the place and could we have just a few minutes to go inside. He said no and told us to take a picture from the road. Then he went in and had his lunch. Strange that a public monument is only open from 10:30-12:30 and from 2:30-:4:30 p.m.
  • Beautiful and quiet, elegant and soothing. I like it, will come back.
  • This small chateau had all I was looking for--in addition to the suits of armor and weaponry, rooms decorated in according to a variety of historical periods, and a cabinet of curiosities on the top floor. Excellent vistas from the parapets.
  • The outside is nice, very well maintained with beautiful trees. However do not take the CB, there is no guided tour for a price of 9.90 euro entry, and collections of objects are so concentrated in dark rooms we do not see much and visit become quickly tiresome. P.S. they have so much fear that we take pictures to have his camera on the shoulder, generates a call to order by speaker unpleasant. There are so many castles to see...
