Trip Planner: Europe / France / Nouvelle-Aquitaine / Dordogne / Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil / Chateau de Commarque
While archeological evidence shows people have lived on this site for thousands of years, Chateau de Commarque was built sometime in the early 12th century. Situated on a cliff for defensive purposes, the castle has changed hands--and nationalities--several times over the centuries. One of the original lord's descendants now owns it and has restored the grounds. Take a self or guided tour through the ruins, and peek in on the seasonal workshops that relate to some of the castle's important periods.

Chateau de Commarque Reviews

We did not go into the remains of the chateau, but found the troglodyte artifacts more interesting. It's a pretty long walk (15 minutes or so) from the parking lot to the chateau and the access roads.... more »
Impressive!!! They did a great job maintaining the castle and not taking away the original remains. It's quite bit so take your time to go through each area. Do not miss climbing to the top tower and the 360 view is incredible!!! I'd recommend going no later than 4 during November since it gets dark real fast. High recommend it!
The "enchanted" castle The Beauty and The Beast style. Very romantic but difficult to finde. The sign "to the castle 600 meters" is not true. Is about 1 kilometres downhill.
