The Dordogne is said to have over 1000 castles. Many of these are not open to the public as the name 'chateau' can be applied to any house that has been a centre of wine production - so many places that are called 'chateaux' will be distinctly less imposing than others.

Be that as it may, the Dordogne region, and just over the border into the Lot-et-Garonne, has many of the finest castles in France, often in spectacular locations, and frequently surrounded by carefully manicured gardens with far-reaching views over the Perigord countryside.

Many of the castles date from the turbulent times in the 12th-14th centuries and the wars between England and France.
