We really enjoyed our look round this castle. It's quite big and you can get a bit lost, but in a good way. We also really liked the immediate area just outside, it was a really nice small village with places to eat etc.

This rock shelter hewn out of the cliff was originally a prehistoric cave dwelling. It looks like a castle in the cliff and is the only one of its kind still intact. you can walk through the rooms of the house inside the cliff - they have been furnished in period furniture - there is the kitchen,grand hall, bedrooms, chapel,...

Loved this place - found it extremely interesting would be good for all ages - exhibits were very well done but the actual place built into the rock wall was incredible. Excellent visit - the torture exhibit was very graphic at the end so beware if your children can read!

We felt privileged to visit this most interesting medieval stronghold, clearly so well looked after. It was very atmospheric, with music playing in certain rooms and a real log fire! Some of the stairs are very steep for elderly folk! The room with the torture implements were not for ladies of a nervous disposition, so that was left to my... More

Interesting fortified cave/rock over hanging. Well organised with lots of little touches like music in various rooms to create the mode of the time; period furniture etc. Worth the trip.

Didn't know about this place until I picked up a leaflet at the hotel, but decided to go have a look and was glad I did. Very well presented, very interesting, and just a little but different from the other attractions in the region.

Just round the corner from St Christophe the Troglodyte City is Maison Forte de Reignac. This is a medievel house built into the hillside of a previous troglodyte cave dwelling. the house is beautifully kept with loads of artifacts and the real fire still going. I wish I had picked up an English guidebook as it is all French inside,... More

This site has been bought privately and developed recently in a very short space of time. They have done a brilliant job. The fort is authentic and interesting and the explanations in a number of languages are descriptive and informative. One of the best attractions we visited during our week in the Dordogne.

My wife & I drove here from Domme during our week in the Dordogne. From the car park it can look a bit of a walk up to the main building, but trust me it isn't that difficult even with my dodgy hips / knees and it was well worth the effort. The building holds a lot of history and... More

Absolutely recommended visit if you are in the area. Authentic decoration, informative tour that allows you to 'understand' how it was to live in this place. The torture museum is a separate room, for all well reasons. Absolutely not the torture chamber you expect in any castle, but a real view of the disgusting ability of mankind to engineer pain...
