    • In the heart of the Périgord Noir, the Domaine de Vielcroze perpetuates the know-how of walnuts and truffles, emblems of a Périgord region that is celebrated. It is at the foot of the majestic castle of Castelnaud, in an 18th century farmhouse, that the Walnut Ecomuseum has been established, surrounded by a 7-hectare organic walnut grove. The estate's truffle farm, nearby, offers you an initiatory approach to unraveling the mystery of the black diamond of Périgord, with a succulent tasting at the end of the journey. Our restaurant, La Cour du Moulin, welcomes you for artisanal Périgord specialties. More than a dive into the heart of ancient know-how, the Vielcroze estate is an ode to the outdoors, a celebration of good things and a haven of conviviality in Périgord Noir. Welcome !

    Pretty museum that talks about their production of walnut oil through both ancient and modern techniques. My favourite part was the Bio walnut oil (right from their plantations and made the old way, has a very toasty flavour) while the museum was alright.

  • "Good Museum and Walnut Oil. Avoid the Restaurant"

    3 / 5 Reviews posted by planetary_janetary (Lourmarin, France) on 16/06/2022

    We enjoyed our visit and decided to extend it with lunch in the restaurant on site. Unfortunately we were left to wait for over 30 minutes after asking for the bill. The server simply did not return.

    Nicely set up and full of lush walnut trees. Historical set up of wals, cooker and press. our 4yo is still making everyone taste the lovely nut oil and telling the story of what he saw at Ecomusee
