Puymartin Castle

Le Chateau de la dame blanche

Welcome to Château de Puymartin

History of Château de Puymartin

The construction of the Puymartin castle began in the 13th century. In 1357, the château became an English possession. The consuls of Sarlat bought the estate from the English and abandoned it.

Radulphe de Saint-Clar rebuilt the castle in 1450, and in the 16th century, Raymond de Saint-Clar bought it back and repelled the Protestants. Under the name of Capitaine de Puymartin, he took Sarlat back from the Huguenots.

In the 17th century, Jean de Saint-Clar and his sister Suzanne fought over ownership of the château for 40 years. Suzanne finally became the owner. The château was abandoned in the eighteenth century.

In the 19th century, Marquis Marc de Carbonnier de Marzac, grandfather of the current owner, restored the château in neo-Gothic style with his wife's dowry.

The château was listed as a historic monument by decree on December 6, 1948. One of its 17th-century rooms, panelled and painted, was listed as a historic monument on March 1, 19771.

After the death of the owner, Count Henri de Montbron, on July 31, 2002, his wife and children inherited the property in 2003.

The legend of the White Lady

Legend has it that a 16th-century châtelaine, Thérèse de Saint-Clar, was surprised with her lover by her husband's unexpected return from war. As punishment for her sin, she was condemned to remain a prisoner for 15 years in a small room in the north tower. On her death, she was walled up there.

She could sometimes be seen wandering at night, in the form of a white lady, on the castle walkway, before entering this room.
