Bourdeilles Castle on video
A journey through the centuries

The castle, perched on a rocky hill, is home to two exceptional buildings: a 13th-century medieval fortress with its impressive keep, and an elegant Renaissance dwelling. Listed as Historic Monuments, these jewels are the living testimony to eight centuries of history.

Originally, this medieval castle served as a defensive fortress, passing from the Kingdom of France to the Crown of England, before being liberated by a noble Breton knight, Duguesclin.

During the Renaissance, a love of art and comfort inspired the construction of a new, richer and brighter building. Built in the 16th century and restored until 1972 by a couple of passionate patrons, this Renaissance dwelling now houses an exceptional collection of furniture, bearing witness to the splendours of the 15th to 19th centuries.
