Molières: one of 18 country houses in Perigord. Its name comes from the Occitan Moliera "damp earth, soft". Its name has changed over time: Molerii (1115), Moli and Molier (1315) and later Moulières (1482).

This charming English country house was founded in 1284 by John Grailly seneschal of King Edward I of England. Bastide unfinished (it has never been covered with houses on), the castle began in 1316 was also incomplete. The country was ravaged by the Hundred Years War, and the village was not spared despite its reconstruction by the fierce fighting of the wars of religion.


The design of the house, one house at angles, "the house of Bayle" subsists in the southwest corner of the square. The castle is called "Castle of the White Queen" Blanche de Bourbon was reportedly imprisoned and thrown into a well. According to legend his ghost haunted places in ruins that remain dangerous. There remains only the enclosure with its ramparts and a square tower, isolated in the middle of the enclosure, and the well!

The fortified church of Gothic style with a tower with two floors. Surprisingly, the church is not nearly as central to the other houses.

Very nice airy room with its old houses. Peace and tranquility are felt in that place where the cats know how to find the perfect place to bask in the sun. The tour continues via the "carreyrous" the first pedestrian streets, arterial streets are reserved for animals and carts. The wrought iron on the square or grids or a portal property Molières are the work of a craftsman of the town.

This recently renovated town, we made a beautiful home with large pottery posted at the entrances of the village, prompting us to slow down, enjoy the beauty.

Guided tours all year on reservation (fee).
