Vaillac and Its Castle

Vaillac and its castle

Vaillac is a village that flourished during the Middle Ages, centered around the Foulon, a small stream that played a role in the development of weaving activities.

In the early Middle Ages, several families held seats within a co-lordship established in the heart of the village. Later on, the Vaillac Castle was built, an architectural gem that stands as one of the iconic monuments constructed in the aftermath of the Hundred Years’ War, around the 1460s.

This castle is privately owned, still occupied by the descendants of the d’Antin family, and opens its doors on certain dates during the summer and on Heritage Days.
