Castillonnès - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Lot-et-Garonne

Village of Lot-et-Garonne with more than 1400 inhabitants, Castillonnès takes place on the Dropt, between Bergerac and Agen. The town is not far from Cavarc, Douzains or Sainte-Radegonde.

The one that takes its name from Castillon neu, "New Castle", is originally a country house created in the middle of the thirteenth century by Alphonse de Poitiers and taking place on the old parish of Doene. A century later, the town became the seat of a baylie Agen, before being annexed to the Crown of England in the first half of the fourteenth century.

Standing still proudly today in the heart of a preserved and unique landscape, Castillonnès continues to seduce passing visitors by its exceptional nature and its modest architectural heritage testifying to a rich past.

Things to see and do

Built in the 13th century, the Saint-Pierre church was built as soon as the bastide was built. Of this first building, unfortunately today only the walls remain in a beautiful device with a flat chevet. Destroyed during the Hundred Years War, it is again burned during the wars of religion of the sixteenth century. Today, it is possible to admire a quadrangular vault and bell tower from the beginning of the 20th century, a 17th century altarpiece from the Agen cathedral, or stained-glass windows from the end of the 1960s.

While browsing the town, you will also be able to discover the hotel of Cours de Thomazeau, today registered with the Historical Monuments. Built around 1770, it is a private, classic-style property that unveils underground rooms that include a permanent spring pool.

In the old streets remain many vestiges of the old country house like the halls, pebbles pinnacle or arcades.

Equestrian enthusiasts will appreciate the presence of the Sarlande racecourse with its more than a kilometer track in pozzolana.

Castillonnès is also crossed by several marked hiking trails like the GR 636 and the GR 654 which allow to appreciate the local flora and fauna.
