    • Located on a rocky outcrop, the Château de Hautefort is an old medieval fortress transformed in the 17th century by the Marquis du nom into a lodge. Embellished in particular by the addition in the 19th century of a French garden and a landscaped park, it is a unique site in Périgord which combines the splendor of nature and the majesty of the architecture, to a culture of refinement inherited and transmitted over time. This place steeped in history, preserved and restored by its various owners for more than a millennium, can still be visited today. It is the result of a family’s strong commitment to a value : beauty.
