It’s days like today that I’m extra thankful for our home. It’s the one place where I can relax and feel safe while blocking out the craziness – and a certain virus – at the door. I’m sure that I’m not alone in this.
But imagine if you had a draw bridge? Not only would it add a certain grandness to your home, it would also make your home the talk of the neighbourhood. Sure, people would think you’re next level crazy prepper but you and your toilet paper would be safe!
Today’s door comes to you from Château de Beynac in France.
Situated high up on a rock cliff, overlooking the Dordogne River and the surrounding countryside, this massive fortress was set up in the 12th century by the Barons of Beynac. They controlled transportation of the area – both the land and the waterways. It later served as a French stronghold during the Hundred Years War. Today you can visit the Château to learn about it’s history and experience the impressive property in person.
