"Chateau Beynac overlooking the Dordorgne River, France",
The Chateau Beynac is situated on an high cliff for a strategic overlook on the Dordorgne River. This area was very much involved in the Hundred Years War in the struggle between the Plantagenets and Capetians. From the Chateau built about 1115 the French could keep watch on the English chateaux on the opposite side of the river.
