This wonderful château is situated near Lalinde, right in the heart of the Dordogne within 100 hectares of its own private grounds. The château’s foundations date back to the 13th century and possibly even earlier. In the 15th century its military architecture was restructured due to changes in weaponry. In the 18th and 19th centuries serious alteration work transformed it into what it is today. The chateau has been in the Saint-Exupéry family since 1734. This is an ideally located spot for exploring all of the Dordogne tourist sites.
