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.

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.

Beautiful and quiet, elegant and soothing. I like it, will come back.
Juliette MaësAugust 22, 2017Very nice tour of a castle in excellent condition! 2 trees several hundred years at the foot of the fortifications are majestic! In the Castle, with the superb collection of objects dedicated to Fénelon, who lived there and the rich furniture looks to be transported in the past! The arms room is also very impressive. Explanation along the way signs are very readable, and bring relevant explanations! A visit that won't leave you indifferent!
Laurent BernovilleAugust 20, 2017A beautiful castle on the heights of the Dordogne. The outside is impressive and harmonious and well maintained by the Squire. And it's on the inside that we discover a very rich collections running through history with many explanations while retracing the life of Fénelon without forget the legend of the Castle, with a few ghosts from the past still present... We had a good welcome from the owner and the booklet of the castle is to buy as a souvenir.
