The architecture of the Château de Monbazillac remains identical to the original design built in the 1550s by the d’Aydie family. This Protestant fief survived peasant revolts, the Wars of Religion, and even the French Revolution. It was classified as a historical monument in 1941.

Fully furnished, the Castle is open from April to November. Visitors are welcome to come and walk around the property, but it is important to note that guided visits aren’t available yet. At the end of the visit, each visitor is offered a sampling of Monbazillac wines.

Château de Monbazillac: a real gem of the Bergeracois region

“So many castles to visit in Dordogne! And visiting the one in Monbazillac was a delight!
A September visit, under a beautiful sun: the castle and the landscape were breathtaking. I took along with me a friend passionate about photography, and we took the time to look at everything around us.”

The Chateau, nestled on the hillsides of the Monbazillac Winery, has a view reaching the city of Bergerac.  It has been completely restored and cleaned up on the façade. It blends in flawlessly with the colors of the surrounding nature.

Among the most beloved monuments in France
