Château de Beynac

On the banks of the Dordogne River, close to our beautiful accommodation in Sarlat, is the stunning Château de Beynac.

Perched on the top of one of the limestone cliffs, Beynac Castle was built in the 12th century and is still home to an elderly woman. Wandering through the historical monument, you will find very old tapestries and a few pieces of simple furniture. The construction of the castle is fascinating, from the windows of varying heights and sizes, the intricate stairs and high watch towers. Enemies would have been easily seen from all angles. The grounds surrounding the castle are beautifully kept and the views are magnificent.

I highly recommend visiting!
