Garden

I had seen photos for years of the beautiful Marqueyssac Garden and had it on my list of a must place to visit. We were on our way across France to Annecy and passed through the Dordogne area (a very spectacular region) and I finally got to go. It’s on those lists you see listing the most beautiful gardens in the world and for a reason.

Here is a map showing the size of the garden. We walked to the very end with fabulous views of the country side down below.

What the garden is best known for is the sculpted box bushes. There are over 150,000 of them with five full time gardeners to keep them in shape and I’m sure, many more people to keep it clean. There wasn’t a leave or twig to be found on the grounds.

This is the most popular and most photographed view.
On the other side. I’m so glad we got to go. It turned out to be a very rainy day but we got there early before it started.
