Our local french hosts took us to the Maison Forte de Reignac. We were truly fascinated with this historic castle built over many centuries since the 1100's which is cut into the side a cliff. The castle is very elaborate with many levels and stone...More

We stumbled upon this place by accident, we were actually going somewhere else. On seeing the frontage we knew that we had to go in. It was amazing. A really good unhurried visit to a splendid house. And the Torture Chamber temporary exhibition was a...More

This is possibly unique...a fortified chateau built into and using caves. The very informative written guide available in several languages explains what there is to see in each room. There is the usual shop to visit on the way out, and a rather disturbing exhibition...More

This is a beautiful place and so well kept. From the prehistoric part in the rocks to the medieval house, all of it is impressive. Such a beautiful fusion of different times. Only downside is that all signs that explain what you see are only...More

This is a unique and fascinating visit; an early medieval chateau built right into a cliff with defensive positions in the cave immediately above. The attached torture museum is also fascinating, but not for the squeamish.

The limestone escarpments along the river courses were the ideal shelters for pre-historic humans; and this House/Fort of the past landowners/ gentry is built into the hillside. A very defendable place but unlike the others established to defend along the Dordogne this ended up being...More

Very unusual castle, built on prehistoric caves. The interiors are well furnished and allow for a great immersion in the past. Well worth a visit!

In all honesty it would be difficult, even painful. Just to get to the entrance is a fairly stiff climb. There are several sets of stairs in the building as well. I regret that I would not cessommend it for you.
