A castle built in to a rock face and inhabited for a few thousand years this is an odd place and some of the rooms and the history combined can make it a little creepy. Enjoyed it overall but I wouldn't go back.

When in the Dordogne, do spend an hour or so at this unique fort. It is really interesting and well-preserved. The additional museum of torture is an experience but does require a strong fortitude.

Much more to see than expected. Filled with furniture, some dating back to medieval times. There were fascinating historical artefacts but the main point of interest were the rooms themselves built into the rock. I loved the Fun little touches like moving armour (reminded me...More

In all honesty it would be difficult, even painful. Just to get to the entrance is a fairly stiff climb. There are several sets of stairs in the building as well. I regret that I would not cessommend it for you.
