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.

The Gardens of Marquessac are estraordinary to say the least; greated by undulating 'waves' of clipped box, the gardens extend across the plateau from the Chateau, terminating at an erie overlooking the river. During the summer holidays in August, an extraordinary music spectacle is organised...More

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)
