Explore the hamlet of Montfort
A bit farther on, you’ll see the recently renovated hamlet of Montfort. With cobblestone streets, a “pierced rock” esplanade and a peaceful atmosphere, this is an excellent destination, as long as you’ve got practical shoes on!
The road can be narrow, but it brings you face-to-face with treasures from the past such as grottoes that were used as stables, shops and even homes!
And you can’t miss the Château Montfort . In fact, you really can’t miss it, since it overlooks the Dordogne River from the top of a rocky promontory between Vitrac and Carsac.
The castle is not open to the public, but don’t worry, you’ll appreciate the view!
On your way back down, the steep road will bring you to the fountain and wash-house, the village’s original sources of water.
To get back to the centre, take a deep breath and climb back up the steep “fisherman’s” path.
Nature lovers will appreciate the Cingle de Montfort, a meander in the river towards Carsac. This natural curiosity offers an unobstructed view over (almost) the entire island of Turnac. As you pass by the car park, you’ll enjoy a view of the castle, the Turnac walnut grove and the Dordogne River.
