Walk to Remember: Gardens of Marqueyssac, France

Even though the Gardens of Marqueyssac in France have a unique appearance and atmosphere, I couldn’t help correlate the feel of this place with that of Villa D’Este. When choosing between a natural landscape and a man-made environment, I would normally have no difficulties. Pristine places equal total domination.

Wrapped around a traditional 17th century French chateau, the absorbing sculpted gardens of Marqueyssac made me sigh. They are an example of an inspired and inspirational man-nature relationship, as overrated as that may sound.

The Gardens of Marqueyssac have an interesting story behind and they were only open for the public in 1996. The playful, “bubbly” design of the plants is said to maintain a design discovered here three centuries ago. The actual property of the chateau includes about 5 kilometers of walking trails, a Belvedere spot, three framed overhanging gardens and a chapel. Located in the town of Vézac in the Dordogne region of France, the gardens can be discovered half-way between the Bourdeaux and Rhone wine regions.
