Gardens of Marqueyssac

The Gardens of Marqueyssac, located in Vezac, France, are some of the most stunning in the country.  They cover roughly 70 acres, and feature sculptured boxwoods that wrap around a 17th century chateau.  The property overlooks the Dordogne Valley, and the views are simply breathtaking.

Visitors can walk along hiking trails, enjoying gardens, terraces, stone huts, a gothic chapel, and playgrounds for children.

The gardens are open April - September from 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM, February, March, and October, from 10:00  AM - 6:00 PM, and July and August from 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM.

Admission for adults is 7.40 euros and children is 3.70 euros.
