Premise
“Set on a plateau overlooking the Dordogne river and valley, these stunning gardens that have been featured on BBC 2's Gardeners World are a great place to visit for the whole family. Children will love running through the parkland and playing in the play areas. During July & August every Thursday there are candlelit evenings with jazz music, take a picnic and enjoy a new experience. www.marqueyssac.com”

“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.”

You can enjoy the beautiful character of the village, climb up to the troglodyte caves, take a river boat cruise, have a drink or meal at a cafe or restaurant al fresco next to and overlooking the river and take photos of this wonderful village.”
