The castle is open to the public at most times it cost 7 euros to go in when we visited.

The view from the top down the Dordogne valley is worth the money on its own.

The castle was once captured by Richard the Lion heart King of England.

During the 100 year war the ownership changed hands between the French and English.Places to eat in the village and Map of the area

This area seems to have a castle or chateau around every corner.

All along the river valley you will find villages built right up to the cliffs.

There are plenty of places to stay in the area we stayed in a Gite in the nearby town of Bergerac.

This Gite in the village of Daglan looked very nice
