Gardens Of the Castle Of Hautefort : The elegant silhouette of Château de Hautefort is situated on the summit of the plateau that dominates the valley of Beuze and Lourde. An old roman camp, the medieval fortress became a house of leisure during the 17th century. Defences are progressively replaced by classical architecture, a symbol of the rank and power of the Marquis de Hautefort. The building houses a collection of 17th and 18th century furniture.
In the 19th century, the Comte de Choulot created the French-style garden as well as the English-style garden which offers a variety of countryside and village views. The embroidery of garden ledges are greatly reputed and adds to the pleasure of the visit.
