Premise
“A listed site, the romantic and picturesque gardens of Marqueyssac offer more than six kilometers of shaded paths bordered by 150000 hand-pruned box trees a hundred years old, the whole embellished with belvederes, waterways, rockeries and grassy clearings.”

Museum
“Castelnaud is a lovely castle, restored to its nearly original state in recent decades. Like many of the castles in this short stretch along the Dordogne river it is situated on a bluff with magnificent views both up and down river. Chateau Beynac is clearly visible, where the English were kept under watch (and vice versa)! There are great displays of catapults and a small but fascinating museum of medieval implements of warfare and torture. Well worth the visit.”
