Vaillac and its castle

Vaillac is a village that developed during the Middle Ages around the Foulon, a small river that contributed to the development of the weaving industry.

At the beginning of the Middle Ages, several families had a lordship in the heart of the village. Later, the château de Vaillac was established, an architectural jewel which is one of the emblematic monuments built following the Hundred Years’ War, in 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 the occasion of Heritage Days.
