Hautefort Castle.


Hautefort is one of the most beautiful castles in the Dordogne region. Constructed between the 16th and the 18th century, it is the quintessence of the French château gracefully blending styles from different historical periods.

The castle has been embellished over the centuries by a garden à la française, a landscape garden, geometric flower gardens, topiary gardens, and a formal Italian garden with winding shaded paths. The gardens have been listed by the Committee of Parks and Gardens of the Ministry of Culture of France among the Notable Gardens of France.
