Marqueyssac

The extraordinary Gardens of Marqueyssac, near to the village of Vezac, are the most visited gardens in the whole of Périgord. This historic park extends to some 22 hectares, and offers more than 6 kilometers of shaded walks amongst a maze of 150,000 hand-carved, centuries-old, box trees. The box trees are expertly carved with the focus on roundness and curves as opposed to the symmetry and regularity often associated with box.
