Fenelon, feudal fortress of Black Perigord
Feudal fortress of Black Perigord, Fenelon has been the native home of François Armand de Salignac de la Mothe Fenelon, well-known under his writer name “Fenelon”, who lived during the Enlightenment Century of Louis XIV. Today, the Château is private, still occupied by its owners.
Classified as “Historic Monument”, it’s one of the Château that we recommend the visit to our guests, and especially for old stones lovers. Encircled with 3 fortified walls, the Château looks like it was in the old days with an impressive “lauze” roof. Fenelon is perfectly restored and every room has period decoration with parquets, furnitures and tapestries.
The site is open from Easter to All Saints Day holidays. It’s closed on Saturday and during the low season on Tuesday too. You will find all the prices information here.
