Castle of Beaulon


As soon as the heavy gates are passed, under the benevolent gaze of the high Renaissance tower, you will be delighted to enter the peaceful and welcoming world of Beaulon Park.

A venerable three-hundred-year-old oak tree marks the path that leads to the heart of the undergrowth, to the mysterious "Fontaines Bleues", natural springs whose deep, calm and serene waters have a strange and magical dark blue colour. From meander to meander with the complicity of birdsong, you will walk along dreaming of the legends they gave rise to in the distant past.

On the return from this walk of the most romantic kind, to the Northwest of the Chateau, the dovecote dating from 1740 with its 1500 nests (called cells or bolts) swept by its revolving ladder. During this period owning a dovecote was a privilege to which only the nobility could aspire. For those who love old stones, the North façade of the castle built in 1480 bears witness to its original style of construction with its important flamboyant gothic skylight. The castle was the residence of the bishops of Bordeaux in the 17th century, a decision taken by the heir of Beaulon His Grace de Nesmond, bishop of Bayeux and Advisor to King Louis XIV. - I.S.M.H

To punctuate your visit, you will be welcomed in a lounge of the castle where you can taste exceptional cognac and pineau.
