Beynac is one of the best preserved castles in the region. Not far from Sarlat. This 12th century fortress is open for visits and gives a remarkable insight into what it must have been like in the Lionheart's time. His apartments are on the top floor. Best view! Very blowy. Lost hat twice. Well preserved interior of the chateau. Kitchen interesting. Tables had slots for your sword.
