This was a very interesting visit. An old castle with a spiral staircase and breathtaking views of The Dronne valley and a Renaissance chateau complete with three floors of rooms. Not to missed if you are in the area. We were there out of season. I can imagine it will be very busy in season!

We used the audio guide for our small group and it was helpful to learn more of the history of the site as well as the furnishings inside. The steep walk up is worth the effort to see the view and adjoining landscape. We were the only visitors at the site so we could enjoy at our leisure. Recommend a... More

Visiting Périgord in December there are not so many places open to the occasional visitor but we were very pleased to visit Bourdeilles on a bright sunny afternoon. The staff in the reception area and shop were very helpful and we enjoyed our visit. It's two castles in one : the austere medieval octagonal keep ( quite a climb up... More

We recently visited the Chateau de Boudeilles whilst visiting the area. Bordeilles is a small town not far from Brantome and the Chateau towers above the surrounding landscape. We were the only visitors at the time and we didn't opt to get the audio guide which I think is a shame as there is only limited information around the site... More

We were fortunate to be given complimentary passes for the chateaux, otherwise we might not have looked for Bourdeilles. That would have been our loss. The mini tablet guide in English (other languages are available) is a must, as there is just so much information, in fact we didn't have time for all the "for extra information" options on there....

We thoroughly enjoyed touring the chateau after a morning at the Brantome markets. It is well maintained and laid out and the audio guide was easy to use and informative. The views from the top of the dungeon were spectacular as was the scenery surrounding the nearby river.

Great place to visit if you're in the area. The older castle with the tower dominates the local skyline and has a lot of steps up to the top (and is probably not for some people), however once at the top the views are spectacular. The second castle is set up like a museum/display and is interesting to walk around.... More

Château de Bourdeilles is the central feature of the town of Bourdeilles beside the river Dronne. The attraction consists of two castles from different periods which overlook the river.

Views and the village location stunning The chateau was nice, but not memorable. No English signs. There was people dotted around to ask questions too, but not always approachable Reasonable price
