On our first visit the Château was supposed to be open but wasn't. On the 2nd visit we got our days mixed up: closed on Samedi. So we returned on Dimanche after our pizza outing in Monpazier. Finally, it was open, nothing like a bit of anticipation.
Château Biron boasts a XIIth-century dungeon, some renaissance apartments and plenty of interesting architecture ranging from the XIIth to the XVIth century. It also has a two-storey chapel, the top chapel was reserved for the gentry and the lower was for the peasants!
The site is at the top of a hill and has 360" views that are pretty impressive.
Anyway, back to our tour of the castle. While Château Biron isn't nearly as spectacular as Beynac it was still a damn good adventure. We were provided with a very detailed guidebook which was full of interesting facts and stories. This helped to bring the château to life. One example of this was outlining all the sleeping arrangements: the Lord's mistress slept in the attic tower, near the dodgy back staircase which seemed to have no other purpose than to connect to the main stateroom via the roof.
