In 1853, the landscape architect, Count of Choulot, redid the gardens, adding a landscape garden, geometric flower gardens, topiary gardens imitating the domes of the château, and a long tunnel of greenery. Next to the formal gardens is a hill with an Italian garden with winding shaded paths. Notable trees in the park include a Magnolia grandiflora and a Cedar of Lebanon. The gardens are listed by the Committee of Parks and Gardens of the Ministry of Culture of France as one of the Notable Gardens of France.In popular cultureThe Château de Hautefort was used in the 1966 film 13 .

Un très joli château parfaitement conservé avec en prime des jardins à la française et un parc anglais magnifiques. Visite sous la pluie mais n'enlève rien à la beauté des lieux qui nous transportent ... more »A very nice Castle, perfectly preserved with bonus gardens to the French and an English park beautiful. Visit the rain but does not detract from the beauty of the places that transport us in centuries back to note the little movie in entry of the visit that perfectly explains the history of the masters of these places
Beautiful chateau and amazing gardens. The rooms are decorated in Renaissance-type styling. They are doing work on the chateau as of July 2016.
The Chateaux is incredible. However at present major reconstruction is taking place and I truly feel it should rather be closed for the duration of the work. We paid EUR19.00 for 2 people and the construction materials and vehicles spoil every picture. Several parts of the Chateaux were also closed. Very disappointed
Incredible. The English gardens and the formal french gardens are truly beautiful. A magnificent treasure in the Dordogne.
Caroline brillouetIt's not the Castle style that I love but when even a nice tour the gardens are nice to also do visit the village
