Awesome!
What Real Estate agents here would advertise as "Renovators dream home with great potential" :rolleyes:

Certainly perilously close to collapse under the weight of those tiles up top.

It gets quite breezy up there Charles, so it's obviously still as solid as a rock.

Thinking about it though? There are also quite a lot of rock falls :eek:

It's difficult to see, but there are several "Windows" you can see all the way to the bottom. There is a cave network that starts down low and does a zig-zag as it goes up. It's maybe 100 feet up from the ground. They guess it was built between 1100 and 1350 A.D.

Glad you like it, it was a fun hike after a day kayaking.

There's a similar chateau in the Lot at Brengue along the Célé Valley towards Figeac. It's just above the camp site at Brengue where we had several lovely camping then Caravan holidays. I had some photos of it both from the site and from the footpath that runs under it. The bottom of the wall is about 40 or so feet above the path and it would appear that it was entered by. the folk up there chucking a rope ladder down. It's under an overhanging lip on the top of the cliff, so no chance of any unwanted visitors 'dropping in'! It would have been really interesting to see what it was like inside. I just wish that I could find all of my 'lost' photos!

https://fr.m.wikipedia​.org …eau_des_Anglais​_(Brengues (external link))

The English translation

The roque de Brengues is a possession of the Barasc de Béduer in the 13th century. It then belonged to a branch of the Cardaillac family, the Cardaillac-Brengues.

The high section of wall that remains with bays and a semicircular door whose arches are made up of small wedges allow its construction to be placed in the 12th century.

A few hundred meters south of the castle is a section of wall with an ogival door and a cruciform arch. It must have been added in 1347 according to Valérie Rousset.

In 1504, according to the enumeration of the ban and the back bank, the seigniory of Brengues is to Jean de Cardaillac, lord of Cardaillac.
