France // The Limousin, Dordogne and the Lot //

Château de Biron

The vast Château de Biron was begun in the eleventh century and added to piecemeal afterwards. You can take a guided tour (in French only), but it’s better to use the audio-guide and wander at will around the rooms and the grassy courtyard, where there is a restored Renaissance chapel and guardhouse with tremendous views over the roofs of the feudal village below.
