The Château de Hautefort is a French château and gardens located in the town of Hautefort in the Dordogne. The castle was originally a medieval fortress that was reconstructed in the 17th century, and embellished with a jardin à la française. In 1853 the landscape architect the Count of Choulot redesigned the gardens, adding a landscape garden, geometric flower gardens, topiary gardens imitating the domes of the château, and a long tunnel of greenery. Next to the formal gardens is a hill with an Italian garden with winding shaded paths. Notable trees in the park include a Magnolia grandiflora and a Cedar of Lebanon. The gardens are listed by the Committee of Parks and Gardens of the Ministry of Culture of France as one of the Notable Gardens of France.

  • This beautiful castle is wonderful to visit, as it is permitted to roam freely through many of the spaces. There is also a delightful terrace where we enjoyed a delicious lunchvon the central courtyard.
  • So well maintained... the gardens, the chateau itself, all beautiful. And it appears to be a movie set even. Very much worth a visit!
