Registered and listed sites

Château d’Hautefort is located 28 km north of Montignac and the Lascaux caves in the Vézère Valley of the Dordogne. This fortress, which once belonged to Bertran de Born, is a blend of medieval defence features with a classical centre castle built between 1630 and 1670. The castle was transformed into a leisure manor in the 17th century, and today it houses a remarkable collection of period furniture from the 17th and 18th centuries. Includes an English-style park and French-style gardens designed by the Count of Choulot in the 19th century along terraces; the garden is now on the register of historic places.
