Magical ancient ruin of w Chateau nestled on top of a prehistoric troglodyte village...superbe ! Need hiking shoes 20 minute drive from les Rosiers
1h:15 mins away. The château we see now was built by the knights templar on the historic site of prehistoric cave dwellings.
One of my personal favorites. Life has sheltered here throughout ages. It is a magical place that invites one to walk through time.
La Dordogne le pays des 1001 châteaux. Commarque reste une choix incontournable : lové dans une vallée perdue au milieu des bois, il a tout du château de conte de fée, mêlant mystère et histoire de la préhistoire à la renaissance. Une ballade dont on se souviendra longtemps.

“Castelnaud is a lovely castle, restored to its nearly original state in recent decades. Like many of the castles in this short stretch along the Dordogne river it is situated on a bluff with magnificent views both up and down river. Chateau Beynac is clearly visible, where the English were kept under watch (and vice versa)! There are great displays of catapults and a small but fascinating museum of medieval implements of warfare and torture. Well worth the visit.”

“One of the most incredible attractions in the region, a UNESCO World Heritage site, La Roque St Christophe is a 1km long cliff, 80m high with 5 enormous galleries. Since troglodyte days, it has been a place of safe refuge. You get to see how the city was arranged and there are working replicas of the lifts which were needed to bring supplies up the cliff face.”
