Le Chateau

There are only four or five castles in France with a history like that of the Château Marzac. The château is classified as an ‘historical monument' by UNESCO. In addition to the main building, there is a dovecot from the 16th. century and a chapel dedicated to St. Nicholas. The château estate is situated in one of the most beautiful and fertile parts of France.
The Dordogne region in south-western France is blessed with great amounts of natural beauty, charm and history.
The great rivers that wind their way through the area have seen history pass by from the Stone Age to the Vikings, and from the great battles of the Middlle Ages to the advent of tourists from all over the world. A journey here is a journey through time.
Great Middle Age fortresses and renaissance manors adorn the rocks along the Vézère River. As many as 1,200 castles remind us of the area's bloody past. For three centuries the region belonged to the English throne as a consequence of the marriage between Eleanor of Aquitaine and Henry Plantagenet.
The violent events during the Hundred Years' War (1337-1453) made their mark on towns and villages, strategically placed around the fertile area. In the midst of this colourful Gobelin of history and culture lies Château Marzac - like a glittering gem 30 metres up the rock.
For more than six hundred years this place - surrounded by neatly maintained gardens - has housed French nobility. The original castle was destroyed during the Hundred Years' War, and the castle that is now there was built in the 16th. century. The remains from the old castle can still be seen in the present castle.
