The town in Perigord we stayed in during our recent visit (see Beynac & Castelnaud for a general description of the region). Built in the late 13th century as a fortified town it was the location of much fighting during the French-English wars of the 13th through 15th centuries and the Religious Wars of the following century. The small house we rented was originally built in the 14th century.
