Château d’Allègre is a favorite family spot that we discovered 6 years ago. It is the remains of a fortress that housed 12 knights dating back to the 1100-1200’s. It sits high up on a hill and is open to anyone passing by! We spent the early evening there on Sunday. AJ had control of the camera and he did a pretty good job capturing the beauty of these remains.
Château d’Allègre is 20-25 km north of our house in Sanilhac. As you can see from a few of the photos, the fortress is right above a road and the Château is marked by a very small old sign. I love that one can be on a back country road and discover such beautiful things!
