Magnifique château où naquit Fenelon, forteresse remarquablement entretenue où l'âme et son œuvre y sont toujours intactes. Collections, meubles, pièces nous transportent pour un moment dans le passé.... more »Beautiful castle where was born Fenelon, remarkably maintained fortress where the soul and his work are still intact.

You can also see the bed where was born Fénelon and a great view of the surrounding countryside. parts of the Castle are very interesting but also a curious thing I had ever seen, a footbath for horses at the entrance of the Castle.
From the moment you climb upto this chateau that looks out over the Dordogne the place is picture perfect. From the swept staircase to the interior rooms there is lots of interesting objects and items to keep your attention. There is a nice restaurant tucked away at the back of the place if you fancy a light meal after your 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.
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.
Very 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!
