History of Losse Castle

The Dordogne valley is full of historical monuments such as fortified castles or medieval castles classified in the unesco world heritage; let's zoom in here on the castle of Losse! At 5 km from Montignac-Lascaux, or about 30 minutes from the campsite Le Temps de vivre, the castle of Losse and its gardens are part of the sites not to be missed in the Périgord Noir.

High above the Vézère river, the fortress encloses a Renaissance castle with a magnificent period décor.
The park of the castle holds the label of "Remarkable Gardens".

The site offers both an extraordinarily well-preserved example of medieval fortifications with its deep moat, and a ceremonial castle of typical 16th century elegance.
