Marqueyssac is one of the most beautiful romantic gardens of France and today the most visited garden in Perigord. Listed as a national historical monument thanks to its 54 acres park, Marqueyssac's gardens offer more than 6 kilometres of shaded paths in a maze of 150 000 hand-pruned boxwoods. From the belvedere, at 130 meters above the Dordogne river, you will see the most spectacular panorama in Perigord. This is the testimony of a rich bygone history and a gorgeous natural heritage. It's also an exceptionnal Dordogne valley point of view, you will see its most beautiful villages : Domme, Castelnaud, Beynac, Fayrac, La Roque-Gageac and its castles.

This is an amazing place. Set on high above the Dordogne river it is unlike anything I've ever seen in Britain. To just call it a garden is selling it short. It is stunningly visual plus it has so much for children and young people....More

An excellent day out for a family, either with young children or teenagers. The entry cost is reasonable. The restaurant again is reasonably priced, serving quality food, not cheap tourist fodder. The gardens are a lot bigger than you expect. Obviously famous for its topiary,...More

We went on a lantern evening on a Thursday in the summer. They had music throughout the gardens. It was very popular and mostly locals. Very unique experience.

By far the best place in France! Picturesque views and gardens. It is mega cheap at day time - 4 Euro 50 for kids. Would recommend getting a year pass for 19 Euro if you live near there!! Definitely recommend going!!!

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)
