Château Bellac, a noble site at the frontier of Pays d'Oc

At the northern frontier of Pays d'Oc, the origins of château de Bellac go back to 12th century nobility.

The small township of Bellac, native town of writer Jean Giraudoux, surrounded by hills, valleys and rivers, still retains the souvenir of the Middles Ages. At a time when coins were minted in the shadow of the fortifications protecting the kingdom of France from English Aquitaine.
