The most beautiful parks and gardens in the Dordogne
Must-see gardens to visit
The classical garden will seek to highlight the perfection of topiary art and to bring out the plant compositions imagined by gardeners. In contrast, the romantic garden, inspired by the English gardens, is inspired by nature and emphasizes the purity of the space.
Discover the gardens of Eyrignac
In the gardens of Eyrignac, nothing is left to chance. Nature is worked to the millimetre. A subtle blend of pure lines and the gentle mixture of greens is discovered. This is undoubtedly why the famous hornbeam alley always captivates visitors: over a distance of 100 metres, there are light-coloured lawns, exotic-looking trees and hornbeams in a row. The establishment also offers breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside through its planted windows.
The gardens of Losse in the Vézèr valley
Les jardins de Losse in the Vézère valley introduces you to the garden with the scent of wisteria, lavender balls, rosemary and santoline. The atmosphere is one of well-being and intimacy. To the south of the garden is a green room with bowers. By imagining, this space becomes suitable for meditation and rest.
The garden of Hautefort Castle
The garden at Hautefort Castle is a perfect example of a “French garden”. The gardener has arranged the plants on the spot as if he were painting a canvas. The detail of the embroidery can be seen on the windows of the castle and the main courtyard. The topiary art evokes structures, which can be thought of as shells, cones and labyrinths.
