The history of the Château de Bourdeilles:

The first traces attesting to Bourdeilles go back to a stronghold, which in 1183 welcomed monks who came to take refuge with the relics of Saint Sapalo. It was at this place that at the end of the 13th century the body of a feudal building that still remains today was erected.
For several centuries, quartered between the crown of France and England, the castle of Bourdeilles will go through many political and religious storms.
Defensive at the origin, object of numerous lusts, theatre of bloody epics, liberated from the English, he was returned to the Comte du Périgord by Duguesclin.
The return of peace, Montbron's Jacquet, made the Renaissance castle a few strides from the medieval fortress at the end of the sixteenth century.
Bourdeilles is also a pleasure castle testifying to the elegance of a new art of living.
