Les jardins du Manoir d'Eyrignac

Périgord’s most beautiful gardens

Although Dordogne is much better known for its castles and gastronomy, it has a wealth of incredibly enchanting gardens which marvellously crown the scenescapes which they dominate and the dwellings which they enhance. A journey through our five favourites.

Gardens of the Imagination in Terrasson-Lavilledieu

At just thirty minutes from Brive and Sarlat, these 6 hectares of lush delights invite you to discover: 150 plant species, 120 water sprays, 2,000 rosebushes, 20,000 perennials, 8,000 trees and bushes, terraces which overhang each other and interweave, a sylvan theatre, a ‘green’ tunnel, woods, a viewpoint and much more… Everything it takes for the Gardens of the Imagination in Terrasson to whisk visitors back through the long history of Humanity and landscape art from Roman times to the present.
A contemporary creation by the Paysage Land architecture studio, comprised of Kathryn Gustafson and Ian Ritchie, it offers 13 green and water-focused scenes which visitors are invited to breathe life into through a rejuvenating, initiatory stroll.
