Château d’Allègre

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!
