Les Jardins de Marqueyssac, Vezac

(4.4/5 based on 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.

  • Very nice landscape on a rocky overhang. The entrance to the Park is such that on the brochure: carved leaf close! The rest becomes increasingly wild as you move away. Little surprises along the way (waterfalls, art, games for children, etc.). Very nice although maybe a little expensive. We had taken the pass "Castelnaud / gardens of Marqueyssac" to recoup a bit.

  • A great welcome after the disappointment of Castelnaud. Free parking, friendly staff. You find the way that suits you in the middle of the boxwood and trees, you will discover an enchanting place on the edge of the cliff. Superb panorama on the Valley.

  • The garden is nice is well maintained. However I find it's a bit expensive to see essentially of boxwood. I find that the signs of the visit could be has again because we were many get lost. The view is beautiful, but we have the same a lot of places nearby.

  • 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.
