“Beautiful castle in equally beautiful setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Chateau Fenelon (apparently a claim to fame was that it was the castle in the movie "Ever After") is, quite frankly, in the middle of nowhere in the Dordogne Valley, about 15 minutes from St. Julien de Lampon, which itself is about 20 mies from Sarlat. If you are in the area, it's well worth a visit as the castle itself is impressive, but the setting--high on a hill overlooking the valley--makes it worth the trip. Follow the signs out of St. Julien through St. Mondane and it is at the top of a very winding road. A pleasant outing on a clear day.
