    • The Château de Puyguilhem, a historic monument to discover in Périgord


      Imagine going back in time and living in a 16th century court castle... Open your eyes, you have arrived at Puyguilhem Castle! Just 20 minutes from Brantôme and 40 minutes from Périgueux, this magnificent Renaissance residence rises elegantly above the vast 3-hectare park where there is a dovecote, groves, statues and a boxwood labyrinth.


      Enter a place with rich histories that spans the centuries without losing its nobility with meticulous decorations, detailed sculptures and a grand staircase with remarkable vaults. Climb the steps and enter the hall of honor, a monumental fireplace presents 6 of the 12 labors of Hercules, a remarkable piece not to be missed.


      Take the time to admire the tapestries and furniture dating from the 16th to the 18th century, a rich collection representing 4 continents. Guided tour, self-guided tour or family meeting, book the time you prefer to discover the Château de Puyguilhem.

    Lovely setting, stunning building. 2 floors to explore, quite a small place (for a château?!) Everyone loves a café though 😉 but I understand there isn't enough demand during quiet season. Maybe a coffee machine?

    All on its own. Poor parking. But amazing architecture.

    We loved this Château, such great work has been done to restore this beautiful building. The only improvement I could suggest would be a small cafe.. but this could be said for many Châteaux.
