One of the most fantastic gardens to visit. The topiary is striking as is the contrast with the beautiful forest. Superb views

We decided to go to the Jardins de Marqueyssac even though the sun was quickly dropping in the early winter's evening. The lady at reception was very helpful and suggested a route that was feasible in just over an hour which was all that was...More

The gardens are clipped into amazing swirling patterns, in between the box hedges grow small pink and white cyclamens. We took the Belvedere walk which became a cliff top walk with the most fabulous views of the Dordogne river and the village of La Roque-Gageac....More

We went the first week of September. As with the whole Dordogne area at this time, everything was just beginning to brown and it isn't the prettiest time to visit gardens. We'd recommend coming in Spring-early summer. The topiary, however, is good year-round and did...More

Really attractive set of gardens. The pleasure is in the sculpting of the bushes and recognising the care and attention to create such pleasing shapes. The gardens are much more than just this feature though, as they extend some considerable distance, up to a feature...More

A truly unique attraction that can be enjoyed by all ages. My husband and I visited with our 3 year old daughter and all of us had a great time. The Salon de The has probably the best view of anywhere I've ever eaten and...More

This is close to alpine hiking! The gardens are unremarkable and the signage is confusing. Not one plant specie is labeled. There are over 150,000 boxwoods pruned into every humpy-lumpy shape imaginable. Lots of thick hedges and overgrown brush to confuse those following the map....More

We had the great fortune of a clear, warm November day to stroll Marqueyssac and were deeply enthralled with every aspect of this property, both the cliffside path overlooking the Dordogne River and the array of interior areas. Props to the staff, whose impeccable maintenance...More

Really enjoyed visiting the garden. Wish I had had more time. The views of the surrounding countryside and nearby castles were exceptional. Nice giftshop.

This garden is like a floating island of greenery, pathways and views out onto castles and towns in the surrounding valleys. But you need more time than you think because all this gorgeousness can go for 6km of walking so including stops for views and...More

As I recall there is no extra charge for the tour - It is included in the entrance fee. Tours in French were every hour but tours in English twice a day (morning and afternoon)
