Considered a Notable Garden of France by the French Ministry of Culture, Les Jardins de Marqueyssac has 150,000 boxwood trees carved in groups of rounded shapes, such as flocks of sheep. Stroll through the romantic 19th-century garden along 5 km (3 mi) of walks, and view rustic structures, water descending from the belvedere and ending in a cascade, and much more. The garden is part of the 17th-century Château de Marqueyssac, built on cliffs overlooking the Dordogne Valley and continually updated until the second half of the 20th century when it was rarely occupied. Beginning in 1996, owner Kleber Rossillon restored the gardens and opened them to the public.

Yes, the views of the valley are enchanting. The cafe is also quite nice. Conclusion: Only the first part of the park is worthwhile. Duration approx. 30 minutes. Then to the cafe. That's it. But then the entrance is too expensive.
Beautiful garden on top of a small mountain next to a cattle. We were just lucky also to watch hot air balloons flying by. It was just magnificent to witness the contrast with XII cattle and 21st century technology meeting that day.
really good, need to keep kids close around cliff areas(although well fenced)! but they love hedged tunnels and exhibits. restaurant a bit of a wait for food but was nice.
