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.
