Château de Commarque

Linked by marriage to the lords of Beynac in the 14th century and abandoned 300 years later, the Château de Commarque is finally back into the caring hand of its last family member, Hubert de Commarque. Slowly retrieved from the overgrowth, the settlement is now open to the public.
If half the site is in ruins, it only adds to the fabulous experience of visiting this very special place hidden into an isolated valley without sight of any modern life.
Probably the only Château where the daring visitor can climb the wind beaten highest tower or seat on the stone bench by the window and reflect peacefully on medieval daily life, as the view unrolls onto fields once busy with ploughmen, and cliffs carved out to shelter artisans.

20mn drive from Beynac-et-Cazenac.
