The castle, of medieval origin, was completely modified in the classical era.
Standing on a rocky outcrop, the Château de Hautefort was transformed in the 17th century by the Marquis that bears its name from a medieval fortress to an imposing stately home. Benefiting from the addition in the the 19th century of a French garden and a landscaped park, it is a unique site in the Perigord which combines splendid nature and majestic architecture, with a culture of refinement inherited and passed down over time. The site, 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 commitment to one value: that of beauty.
