Notes: Château de Fayrac is a French home of the fifteenth, sixteenth and nineteenth centuries built at the edge of the Dordogne, in the municipality of Castelnaud-la-Chapelle in the Dordogne. Fayrac name appears in an inventory of church property in the thirteenth century. It is then a modest stronghold that left the actual castle that vaulted cellars and a round tower. The name is then written Afayrac or Affeyrac. The castle was then owned by the composer Fernand FOUANT of Tombelle, a founder of the Schola Cantorum, which was heavily restored. André Malraux lies a few weeks at the castle when he joined the Resistance after the arrest of his brothers after March 1944.

The castle is the subject of a registration as a historic monument since March 31, 1928. Private property, it is not open to the public.
