    • CHATEAU de LOSSE and GARDENS :

      5 Km from Montignac Lascaux on D 706, this A Listed historical house overlooking the Vézère is a fortress with a defensive apparel dating back to the fifteenth century.
      Within the walls, the Renaissance Hall was completed in 1576. The fine collection of tapestries, paintings and furnishing (XVth & XVIth) recall the time of the last Valois and first Bourbon kings.

      The gardens in the Renaissance style are also listed. Through the gatehouse discover the roselined «chemin de ronde », the knot garden, and take a labyrinthine walk in the green chambers.

    Small chateau but beautifully renovated. Lovely guide and guided tour (although only in french) but you have an English pamphlet which makes it easy enough to follow along.

    The chateau was unfortunately closed but the gardens were open. There is a beautiful short woodland walk alongside the river, some very well kept knot gardens and a bamboo 'maze'. The maze is not a complex thing to occupy more than a few minutes, but it's pleasant to wander through.

    Great walk around a beautiful castle. The tour was only in French, however, they did go to the effort of providing information in other languages to read, including English. Kids loved looking for the treasure boxes and very well maintained castle and gardens with a spot of geocaches nearby.

    Drove by this place and the walls overlooking the river were covered with vines. Looked so ancient. A must see.
