The castle’s six hectare park allows our 60 birds of prey to live in peaceful harmony amongst the surrounding stone and nature of the valley.

Birds of prey display

Our falconers Patrick and Steeve are delighted to present in an exciting and educational demonstration « their birds », a dozen diurnal and nocturnal birds of prey, (we promise, you will not be the prey!).

Nevertheless, for your own safety, please do not try to interact with the birds. Each demonstration creates superb photographic opportunities. In addition to the daily demonstrations, you can visit our birds individually as you wander around the gardens. The Birds of Prey demonstrations are set in the square on the north side of the castle in front of the Renaissance facade of the building overlooking the Dordogne Valley.

Demonstration Times:

The time indicated is when the demonstration begins so please arrive before this (in summer, plan to arrive at the ticket booth at least 30 minutes before the starting time).

Please note : there is no Bird of Prey display during the winter months.
