There are too many chateaux and castles to mention but the first Chateaux in the Dordogne were constructed in the 10th Century.
The Chateau de Castelnaud is a fine example of the familiar, embellished style of chateau and houses a museum of medieval weaponry. Approximately 40 minutes drive this chateau is well worth a visit.
Chateau de Beynac is situated on top of a hill protecting the town of Beynac below. The path to the Chateau is very winding to ward off potential invaders but the view over the surrounding landscape is stunning. Approximately 30 minutes drive from Les Granges.
Closer to Les Granges is the 16th Century Chateau de Losse dominating the Vézère valley and only a 10 mins drive.
