Within 10 kilometers from Sarlat, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle overhangs the confluence between Dordogne and Céou rivers in an exceptional landscape opposite the beautiful villages of Beynac-et-Cazenac and La Roque-Gageac. Well known for its two castles - the medieval castle superbly restored with its Museum of War in Middle Age and the Milandes castle, former property of Joséphine Baker -, the village itself and its typical Périgord architecture is also worth discovering.
