This is private property, registered historical monuments since 1927, open to the public between mid-July and late August (all year by appointment). It was built from 1564 by Pierre Bourdeille, better known by the pen name of Brantôme.

The castle that visitors can see today has kept the identity that has given him Brantôme.
