The chateau in Beynac is one of the most beautifully situated in Europe, high above the Dordogne River, with a view of 4 other castles in the vacinity. You can reach the chateau by car, but the better way is to walk from the village...More

We walked up to the castle but decided against taking the nine euro tour. The views are wonderful and judging by the size of the car park Chateau de Beynac is clearly a very popular attraction

We didn't have time to go inside, but even from outside, the chateau is impressive with great views.

There are many castles in the Dordogne area of France, but this one is amazing! First, it's location on top of a hill with beautiful views for miles around. Second, very true to restoring it to it's medieval roots. Third, you also want to explore...More

My wife and I first took a canoe trip down the Dordogne from which we saw the castles high above, including Chateau de Beynac. After the canoe trip, we drove up to the castle to explore it, not quite sure what to expect. We found...More

The castle is beautiful, but the views from the ramparts are beyond amazing. You can see at least two other chateaux from the ramparts and a huge chunk of the Dordogne Valley. This is one of the easier chateaux to visit because there is parking...More

This was one of those places that looks better from a distance. The walk up is easy, expect to pay tourist admission prices with a leaflet in English (for those that need it). This turned out to be useful as there was no information about...More

This was one of the best tourist destinations I have ever visited in the area. It does not feel overly touristic, and you can get a good feeling of the history since 1100. The views over Dordogne river and the fields are simply stunning.

The views from Chateau de Beynac are great. Touring the castle and exploring the village is fun. Go during the day and at night for different views.

How well equipped is this site for someone with limited mobility? My traveling companion uses a cane or a walker. She cannot take stairs that are uneven or lack handrails. Would she still enjoy a visit here? How does the accessibility of this site compare to nearby Castelnaud?

Unfortunately I did not visit Castelnaud so can't compare the two but would say that the access to Beynac would be very difficult for someone with mobility issues. The access lanes are steep and cobbled with occasional... More
