Edward Scissorhands watch out– the Dordogne Valley’s Marqueyssac Gardens are a beautifully sculpted wonder of France. Noted as a National Historic Monument, these meticulous plants are maintained for admirers and visitors of the limestone cliffs.
The utopian garden is a sight to be seen with boxwood style trees outlying the castle, and an interesting pattern creates pathways and many differing experiences. Nighttime also comes alive in the Marqueyssac gardens with plenty of subtle lights illuminating the foliage and intimate paths. One can explore the gardens alone, or join a guided tour of the area for the most background on the amazing Dordogne Valley.
