Fairytale Castles

Village de Castelnaud

From fairytale castles to mighty fortresses, the Dordogne Valley is the proud owner of a stunning cultural heritage and some of the prettiest sites in France.

Château de Montal

Say hello to one of the finest Renaissance castles in the Valley: Château de Montal!
With its fascinating history and glorious views of the Tours de Saint-Laurent, this little gem tops the list of places to visit.
Renovated period rooms, an ornate stairwell and a courtyard brimming with mouldings and sculptures… Palace of Versailles, eat your heart out !

Château de Saint-Laurent-les-Tours

If you’re looking for a village hideout to throw down your suitcase for a night or two, then rendez-vous in Saint-Céré!
Lose yourself in its maze of narrow, medieval streets before climbing the hill to discover the Château de Saint-Laurent-les-Tours. A lavish display of tapestries by Jean Lurçat and fabulous panoramas over the village and neighbouring countryside… What more could we ask for?

Château de Belcastel

If you want to take that oh-so-romantic sepia photo of provincial France, Château de Belcastel is the place to go!
Although the castle isn’t open to the public, its lush riverside setting is definitely worth a detour. Fancy treating yourself? Carry on 5 minutes down the road and stop off for a Michelin star lunch at Château de la Treyne. Yum yum!

Château des Milandes

Once home to Josephine Baker, the Château des Milandes is a 15th century masterpiece that you just can’t miss!
Kick-start the visit with a tour of the manoir and French gardens before tucking into a few local specialities on the terrace.
Couple this with a spectacular birds of prey show and you’re onto a winner!
