Owner description: Le chateau de Roquetaillade est dans la meme famille depuis 700 ans. Il ouvre au public en 1956. Il est constitue de deux chateaux forts, l'un datant du xie siecle et l'autre du xive siecle, se trouvant dans la meme enceinte. Il est sauve par Viollet-le-Duc au xixe siecle, qui y entreprend egalement d'importants travaux de decoration et de creation de mobilier. Le parc de Roquetaillade comprend les vestiges de l'enceinte medievale avec la barbacane, le ruisseau du Pesquey et ses berges, le chalet xixe et le pigeonnier du Crampet, qui fait partie de l'Ecomusee de la Bazadaise. The two fortresses of Roquetaillade are a masterpiece in Aquitaine, South West France and the site is one of the most popular in the region (30 minutes from Bordeaux, in the borders of the Graves and Sauternes region). The castle has been lived in by the same family for over 700 years and is fully furnished. It was opened officially to the public in 1956. Behind the medieval walls, visitors will discover splendid and unique decorations created by Viollet le Duc, XIX century architect (Notre Dame, Carcassonne, Pierrefonds).
