      Built on a rocky outcrop, Château de Bourdeilles is home to two exceptional buildings. A medieval fortress of the 13th century flanked by an imposing 32 meter high dungeon and an elegant Renaissance building housing a collection of richest furniture in Aquitaine. During the holidays, the children can go through the castle accompanied by their riddle book that will be offered to them. During the workshops, you will also be able to create your own seal or coat of arms, as well as introduce you to calligraphy. During theatrical nocturnal visits, walk along the castle as privileged guests in a warm, humorous and unusual atmosphere. Enjoy your beautiful summer evenings in this exceptional setting at open-air cinemas.

      Animations:

      • Workshops discovered: Heraldry (create her coat of arms), Sigillography (realization of a seal), calligraphy (art of writing)

      Every Wednesday in July-August: minting workshop and shield handling

    Dungeon was closed, so no opportunity to get a nice view. Very expensive considering the size & duration. Beautiful spot, would have given 5 stars if not for the 2 aforementioned issues.

    The house isn't really open to the public, we almost turned around and left, but a very nice lady invited us to take a look around the grounds which we enjoyed and appreciated. I don't know whether it is open at other times of the year, or when there's no Covid, perhaps it isn't open due to that.
