    • The elegant silhouette of Château de Hautefort looms atop a plateau overlooking the valleys of Bauze and Lourde, two tributaries of the Auvézère. This furnished building retains a collection of furniture from the 17th and 18th centuries.

      The old medieval fortress, probably built on the site of a Roman camp, is transformed into a pleasure residence in the 17th century. Gradually abandoning its defensive apparatus for the pleasure of a classical architecture, the castle reflects the rank and power of the Marquis de Hautefort. The castle and the Hautefort Hospice are rare examples of classical architecture in Périgord.

      In the 19th century, the Count de Choulot designed the French gardens and created the English-style park, which offers varied views of the countryside and the surrounding villages. The boxwood embroidery, elegantly arranged around the castle, contribute to the reputation of the estate and the pleasure of its visit.

      During the summer, cultural events are offered to visitors, such as nocturnal visits, Wednesdays in July and August, a dive into history, at the time of the Sun King.
