    • WELCOME TO BEYNAC CASTLE
      THE MOST AUTHENTIC FORTIFIED CASTLE OF PÉRIGORD!

      Standing at the top of a vertiginous cliff, dominating the village of Beynac-et-Cazenac, the Beynac Castle is a stone sentinel who has been watching for more than 9 centuries on the Dordogne.

      Visiting Beynac means going through 5 centuries of French history, in the footsteps of Richard the Lionheart, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Simon de Montfort and the Hundred Years War.

      From the defensive rigor of its 12th century keep to the Renaissance staircase through the very impressive room of the States of the Baronnies of Périgord from the 15th century, the 13th century cuisine and its exceptional barbican, its exceptional state of conservation offers you an unforgettable journey. in the heart of the Middle Ages.

      Between heaven and earth, from the top of its 14th century keep, the 152 meters of sheer drop on the Dordogne will offer you an unforgettable view over the magnificent Dordogne valley, panorama classified 3 stars in the Michelin Green Guide.


      Visiting Beynac is to experience a dive in total immersion in the heart of history.

    Beautiful place along the Dordonne. You can walk along the river or take a boat ride. It's quite a steep hike up to the top but you can also drive up and park behind the Chateau. You have beautiful panoramic view of the river and valley and other Chateaux across the river. With lunch on the terrace of a local restaurant it was a perfect day.

    It's a steep climb up from the bottom car park, but well worth the effort. Good value entry and stunning views from the top. Fantastic place and good audio tour. If you only do one castle in the area do this one.

    Absolutely breathtaking views from the castle; worth a visit just for the vistas alone; but good news, the audioguide is free and in ten languages. It's a small speaker so you don't need headphones. The castle is well preserved and easy enough to get around, lovely time.

    This is like a film set! In fact I am sure it has been used as such. The Dordogne valley is stunning and is liberally dotted with castles. The views from the top, perched as it is at the top of a...

    4 / 5 Reviews posted by LinoYogya (Tangerang, Indonesia) on 13/04/2020

    It is quite easy to find this chateau. To reach this place, it is much easier if we just go around the village and go up to parking spot next to the chateau. The parking spot is not free though. The...
