We enjoyed our stroll amidst the gardens, wending our way through wooded areas and children's playground to a truly impressive viewing point. Exceptional views of the area. Lovely cafe for a light lunch too.

My wife and I ventured to the Gardens of Marquetssac on a beautiful afternoon in October. The gardens are situated on a hilltop overlooking the picturesque Dordogne river and the village of La Roque Gageac, a must see village on foot. Plan to spend some 2 hours strolling the meandering pathways of the gardens amongst the thousands of perfectly hand-sheared... More

We had a great day out at the gardens with our three children (aged 8, 5 and 4) and would definitely recommend a visit to similar families. There is lots to see and discover - with good views over the surrounding countryside too - and under 10s are admitted free so the day out was excellent value as well. We... More

We visited the gardens on one of its candlelit evenings. The gardens are littered with thousands of candles that not only light the way for you, but also create a great atmosphere. Its a very popular attraction, but as the gardens are huge it isn't too crowded. The sunset is amazing and once the sun drops the ambiance of the... More

Having read other reviews about the gardens I was a little confused about what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. With 2 kids (4 and 2) it was a great day out, thanks to the push chair! As we easily walked 6 or 7km's! The topiary was impressive at the start but not too overpowering as the views were... More

I gave these gardens a 3 rather than a 4 star as I felt the brochure advertising them was misleading. It states that there are over 100,000 trimmed box hedges and shows a photo of some stunning box hedges pruned in various shapes. We were expecting more of those only two find that the photo that is always shown advertising... More

I had seen photos of this garden on Pinterest, and placed this number 1 on our list of things to see in the Dordogne. We were entranced by this magical place from the first moment we entered the gardens. The misty day added to the romantic feeling of this surreal place, and although there was one bus tour there when... More

Liked how the garden was perched atop a hill with decent views of the Dordogne Valley. But the experience itself was o-kay, it just felt that there were better sights (and less man made constructs) that we could've experienced elsewhere in the valley. But this place will be good for those of you who enjoy having a peaceful walk in... More

Spent several hours here recently, wandering along the cliff tops above the Dordogne. There are seats along the way for resting, which we needed as it was a hot day. This is basically a "green" garden so don't go expecting wide range of flowering species - the most colourful thing in the garden was a peacock, unperturbed by the people... More
