Les Jardins de Marqueyssac, Vezac

(1,300+ reviews on the web)
Considered a Notable Garden of France by the French Ministry of Culture, Les Jardins de Marqueyssac has 150,000 boxwood trees carved in groups of rounded shapes, such as flocks of sheep. Stroll through the romantic 19th-century garden along 5 km (3 mi) of walks, and view rustic structures, water descending from the belvedere and ending in a cascade, and much more. The garden is part of the 17th-century Château de Marqueyssac, built on cliffs overlooking the Dordogne Valley and continually updated until the second half of the 20th century when it was rarely occupied. Beginning in 1996, owner Kleber Rossillon restored the gardens and opened them to the public.

  • This was one of the highlights of our two week visit to the Perigord Noir. The gardens on a promontory, perched high above the Dordogne River, afford fabulous views in almost all directions. We joined...  more »
  • Very nice walk with magnificent points of views. Ideal for a family day with its playgrounds for children and its small "rope" course. However only the first part of the garden is laid out with trimmed bushes then it is rather a forest.

  • The gardens are very beautiful and pleasant when it's hot because shady. The view over the Valley of the Dordogne, the Belvedere is beautiful. Activities for children (manufacturing mill, mask...), games and acrobranche. Many picnic tables inside the gardens as well as at the entrance. To visit absolutely!

  • Loved it! Wanted to go since I pinned a picture on Pinterest almost 5 years ago! Didn't disappoint, the gardens are truly lovely. Cafe is good too, reasonably priced meals with a superb view. Highly recommended!
  • A much quieter respite from la Roque Gageac, and a stunning view out to it as well! Wish we had more than an hour and a half here, it was much bigger than we'd anticipated and so relaxing.
  • Fantastic views and a lovely stroll around the gardens. In hot weather go early and finish off the visit with a nice lunch.
  • Very large garden with a greate view into the valley. You will be picked up at the end if you don't want to walk back. There are many places for the kids to play, a guided climbingtour and a very nice cafe.
  • Dordogne must see! Great scenery and good wheelchair accessibility if you like walking. Thursday evening with candlelights! Hint: read the info first for what you want to see, if you are afraid of too much walking.
