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.
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.
