Another example of the many Chateaux close to the Dordogne River. (full uncropped view with village is here : http://bit.ly/1LWQOCl )
It was built around 1490, for his wife, by the owner of the chateau de Castelnaud, beacause he considered the latter as unpractical and dark. Nice present !
It has been completed over the centuries, specially in the early 20th century when neo-gothic parts (such as the towers), and the French garden were added. It was bought by Josephine Baker in 1947, and now hosts a permanent exhibition devoted to this artist.
Note : this is an updated version of this chateau, including the newly re-created garden.
