    • Listed as a historical monument, this extraordinary “cliff-castle” is undoubtedly the most secret, the most unusual and the most mysterious in Périgord. Some even say it is haunted...

    Had just visited the nearby troglodyte village and fort so was not convinced this would be interesting from the internal photos. However the photos don't do justice to how fascinating this fortified house is to tour around for a real feeling of medieval living as a nobel. All the exhibit/tour posters were in French but we were given a very informative English folder containing translations. Do not miss.

    A nice place, mixing many eras among the people that lived here. Worth the view and visit.
