“Brantôme is the stunning medieval village of Bourdeilles which sits on the edge of the river Dronne and boasts a chateau, a moulin (mill), a medieval centre and a panoramic viewpoint. Its main feature is its chateau (actually two castles side-by-side). There is a fortress dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries which has defensive walls and an octaganol donjon 35 meters high. Within the walls there is also a second chateau built in the Renaissance style during the 16th century. This chateau is richly decorated and includes the Salon Doré (golden room) and a furniture collection of the 15th to 19th centuries. Inside the castle walls is a garden area laid out in traditional formal French style - avenues of trees, clipped box and neatly laid out grassy areas. ”
