    • The castle of Puymartin, located 6km from Sarlat is a real fairy tale setting.


      The remains of a primitive 13th century castle destroyed by the repeated assaults of the Hundred Years War, the many architectural transformations and additions carried out until the profound reworking of the 19th century, are part of the great moments in the history of France. The painted decorations of the 17th century as well as its mythological cabinet, classified as Historic Monuments, are unique in Pé rigord . You will also discover the singular history of this family which has occupied the premises for 600 years, its most intimate secrets, period furniture and tapestries, the private apartments of the Marquise. And while at the end of the 19th century, spells were attributed to the castle, strange stories would resurface from the past, such as the famous legend of the white lady...

    We had a group tour with a very enthusiastic English speaking guide called Maeve. She really brought the chateau to life with her excellent information and sense of humour. She was so passionate about the chateau and its history and this made the visit memorable and very enjoyable. A lovely chateau in beautiful surroundings.

    Chateau de Puymartin tells a scary story of adultery ❤️ and murder 💀. While the lord of the castle was at war, his beautiful wife did not remain faithful to him. When he returned and revealed this fact, he hanged his lover and imprisoned the beauty in the tallest tower for the rest of her life 🥺. It is said that to this day her spirit wanders the corridors of the chateau and cannot find peace.😱 The place is great for kids and teens 👫. "Gives them the opportunity to test their knowledge of ancient Greek mythology through an interesting quiz."🏛️ 👁️🖐️👂👃👅

    Don't waste your time and money. 30mins in a few rooms that haven't been touched since the 70's it seems. Items that bear no connection with the property or are in very poor condition and information plaques that are faded and hard to read. Every feel like you've been ripped off?
