Meeting the different personalities

Château de Sauveboeuf

Situated on the banks of the Vézère, Sauveboeuf is a magnificent 17th-century building. A visit to the Château is surprising, as you discover the life of its owners, and through them, its history.

A few period pieces of furniture decorate the various rooms, but what really surprises us are the impressive collections belonging to Mr Douce, the Château’s current owner. He has one last treasure in store for you, hidden away in the basement: a prehistory museum that is one of the largest private collections of prehistory in the world.

The Château has only been open to visitors since 2013, and can be visited freely or with a guide, which is advisable if you want to understand not only its history but also why the current owner chose to restore it. Visits to the museum are exclusively private.
