A good place to visit to see a medieval castle in a good state and learn about weapons of this time. Situated in a little medieval village full of charm and in region full of history. Do not miss it!

A stunning setting high above and looking over the Dordogne valley. This ancient castle has loads of history and the tour is well laid out and easy for visitors to follow without a guide.

It’s more of a museum of medieval armour and weaponry than a museum of warfare, though there’s a great video of a trebuchet being loaded and fired. The approach to the building is via the impressive artillery tower, a daunting sight to a potential besieger....More

Fantastic castle with things of interest for adults and kids including a Trebuchet demonstration and amazing views. Lovely village attached with reasonable priced restaurants. A bit touristy but not over the top. Very beautiful.

We really enjoyed our visit. I support most of these comments and must say that our free tour was excellent. Truely informative! Possibly my highlight as it really helped get a better feel for the castle. My only complaint would be the brochure being mostly...More

Hi, the streets leading to the chateau are steep, and the attraction itself has many steps. I would avoid. There are balloon rides over the chateau if you fancy that!
