Legal Informations & CGU
The countryside, beyond the urbanised surroundings of Périgueux, county town of the French department of Dordogne, extends through an undulating landscape, dotted with fields, woods and small market towns, nestling around their age-old churches. The surroundings are peaceful without being isolated as is proved by the proximity of amenities (the town hall, a chemist, a baker’s selling bread and cakes, a butcher’s selling raw and cooked meats, a restaurant, a gymnasium, etc.) and main roads. The A89 motorway, providing access to Bordeaux in 90 minutes and Brive in an hour, is only 15 minutes away. It is but 45 minutes from Bergerac airport, with regular flight to Great Britain, Belgium and Holland.
This castle, originally constructed as a “perfect square”, has traded some of its defensive features throughout its history so as to improve the comfort of its residents. This explains why the west wall has disappeared, giving a clear view over the valley and the horizon. The partial filling in of the moats has resulted in the creation of ground floor openings, letting in light and providing direct access to the garden and the swimming pool. With the exception of the pavilion crowning the chapel, all the buildings date from the Middle-Ages. Today, the castle comprises two 35 m long and 10 m wide, parallel buildings, connected on the east side by a rampart, featuring a semi-circular doorway. Said rampart is topped with a wall-walk, adorned with machicolation, crenels and merlons bearing cross-shaped arrow-loops.
Behind the heavy, solid wood door, reinforced with metal fittings, extends the completely cobbled central courtyard, adorned with a well, fitted with a counterweight mechanism.
The south wing
Constructed between the 15th and the 16th centuries, this building is composed of three pavilions, standing side by side, to which a 20th century pavilion has been added above the chapel. On the courtyard side, it is flanked by a round tower which houses a spiral stairway, providing access to the three levels. The facade is defended by a row of machicolation interrupted by vast mullioned windows, created in the Renaissance period.
The north wing
This building is composed of three sections supported by the defensive wall. A 23 m tall, polygonal tower, flanked by a watch-turret, adjoins the two pavilions that are furthest to the west.
Three old, independent farm buildings are some 500, 800 and 1,500 m from the castle.
This building can indeed be called a castle, a fortified castle even, as it still has many features of a defensive system which, as everywhere else, has had to be transformed in line with comfort requirements. With different shaped towers, a curtain wall, a covered wall-walk, machicolation as well as crenels and merlons, these 13th century stronghold premises, on their plateau, still have everything they need to scrutinise the surrounding countryside. The castle, together with the chapel and the dovecote, is classified as a French historic monument. Perfectly habitable in its current condition, it exudes potential for all kinds of projects linked to cultural, leisure, tourist and farming activities. Equestrian facilities are already in existence. The estate is immense. There is no doubt that the local community will be interested in any exciting projects that might take shape here.
