Marqueyssac gardens

Recommended
Marqueyssac gardens are laid out on a rocky spur overlooking the Dordogne valley. These hanging gardens boast a variety of landscapes which change appearance according to the seasons and time of day. Across the 22ha of gardens, discover avenues and footpaths lined with 150 000 box hedges which wend their way to the belvedere created by Julien de Cerval in the 19C. From the walkway 130m above the river, the view of the valley, and surrounding villages and castles is extraordinary.
