Bourdeilles Castle

Two castles of different eras

Welcome to the Château de Bourdeilles

The Castle of Bourdeilles is part of Beynac, Biron and Mareuil of the 4 baronies of Périgord. It is actually composed of 2 castles: The medieval one with its dungeon, the other renaissance with its dwelling. The latter welcomes a furniture ensemble of exceptional and most important richness in the Dordogne.

The history of the Château de Bourdeilles:

The first traces attesting to bourdeilles go back to a strong place, which in 1183 welcomed monks who came to take refuge with the relics of Saint assassin. 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 Château de Bourdeilles will cross many political and religious storms.
Originally a defensive object of numerous lusts, a theatre of bloody epics, liberated from the English, he was returned to the Comte du Périgord by Duguesclin.
The peace returned, Jacquet de Montbron built, in the late sixteenth century, the Renaissance castle with a few strides of the medieval fortress.
Bourdeilles is also a castle of pleasure attesting to the elegance of a new art of living.

Place of filming many films and movies.
