TThere is a small village, Castelnaud-la-Chapelle associated with the chateau.  The river Céou runs through it.  The Céou in turn flows into the Dordogne.  The oldest documents mentioning Château de Castelnaud-la-Chapelle date from the 13th century when it figured in the Albigensian Crusade.  During the Hundred Years' War, Castelnaud owed its allegiance to the Plantagenets, Beynac across the river, to the king of France.  In later times it was abandoned bit by bit and fell into ruin.  Today it is privately owned and open to the public.
