A brief history

The human presence in Sadillac is very ancient (carved stones, flint, ..) The very name of Sadillac comes from a Gallo-Roman villa belonging to one named Satellius; This name identifies a satellite, a veteran mercenary of the Roman armies rewarded for his loyal services. In April 1079, for the first time, the name Sadillac appeared in modern history

The monks cleared the forests to develop the land around them. On September 19th and 20th, 1304, the Archbishop of Bordeaux, Bertrand de GOT (who became Pope Clement V the following year) came to Sadillac to preach the word of God. Around 1340 the monks were replaced by a prior appointed alternately by the bishop of Agen.

At the end of the fifteenth century, a prior transformed the monastery into a priory. On August 8, 1565, the whole court of France crossed Sadillac on the road from Lauzun to Bergerac. There are Catherine de ‘Medici, Charles IX., Princes, lords and servants, guards and escorts with carriage horses and carriages, nearly 6,000 persons. Four years later, in May 1569, a Protestant army from Bergerac attacked the town of Sadillac and “after a terrible battle” captured it and shattered the houses, blew up the church and kept only the South wall as a point of support for the garrison installed in the priory.  

The town of Sadillac never recovered from this fatal day, the church was rebuilt only about forty years later, at the beginning of the seventeenth century. The priory, now called Chateau de Sadillac, was sold as national property in 1792.
