    • Between Sarlat and Les Eyzies, the two towers of the Château de Puymartin appear, nestled in the middle of the woods, built in the 13th century, occupied by the English during the Hundred Years War and destroyed by the consuls of Sarlat to avoid any new occupation of the site.

      In the 15th century, Radulphe de Saint-Clar rebuilt the castle, which in the 16th century was the headquarters of Catholics in the region. In 1789, the castle belonged to Marquis François Roffignac de Carbonnier de Marzac. At the end of the 19th century, his great grandson, the Marquis Marc Roffignac de Carbonnier de Marzac, completely restored the castle. His only daughter married Count Jacques de Montbron in 1920.

      The family of Montbron, still the owner of the castle, has kept the furniture, Aubusson tapestries and exceptional paintings. The mythological cabinet, classified as Historical Monuments since 1977, and entirely painted in grisaille illustrates scenes from Greek mythology painted between 1650 and 1671 by Philippe Lemaire. Originally a meditation cabinet, it became a child's bedroom in the 19th century. It is very rare to find such a set in grisaille in such a good state of conservation.

      As for the Dame Blanche, its curious legend will be told to you…

    Beautiful small castle, a bit disappointed how small area was spent public.

    Not the best château I have done in Dordogne. Also the guided tour is not of the best quality. Interesting the legend of the same Blanche but I would say I would not return there.
