Chateau de Puymartin, Sarlat-la-Caneda

Take a guided tour through Chateau de Puymartin, a castle originally built in the 13th century. Access is by tour only, and you'll get a thorough explanation of sumptuous tapestries, antiques, and other curios housed within. The property was enlarged in 1450 and restored in the 19th century, remaining in the hands of the Saint-Clar family until the 18th century, when it was abandoned--although some say one of the Saint-Clars never left. Legend has it that 16th-century occupant Teresa Saint-Clar roams the ramparts of the castle at night. Teresa was surprised with her lover by her husband, and as punishment was imprisoned in a small room in the tower for 15 years. The story goes that upon his death, she was walled into the room. Guided tours are in French only, but an informational brochure is available in English.

  • A castle restored largely in the 19th century by the historical family of founders. Then you can see furniture, tapestries and paintings. You can visit the only with a small explanatory leaflet (but you can see the original mythological Cabinet that is seen with a guide) a good time to spend in the past and interesting legend included White Lady!

  • The building is very well kept medieval with renovated places character and additions from other eras. The Interior is richly and pleasantly furnished. The legend of the White Lady's particular appeal but otherwise nothing very classic in the visit. The place is worth visiting (€8.5), especially for which concerned us by the guide who was erudite and interesting. It is a call to make.

  • Very beautiful castle with a legend of the White Lady. Fine furniture of time and lovely drapes to do first to not be disappointed at the sight of the other Castle in the region

  • No much to see inside for 8 Euro. Cheap antiques in most rooms. Would be great for children. Outside is beautiful.
  • It's a beautiful castle dating back to the 13th century but it was modified in the 15th and especially in the 19th century. I recommend visiting this castle and if you take a guided tour you may have the opportunity to enter the mythological cabinet which is a classified historical monuments.
