But it's what's nearby that really blew me away - they call it the Bastion, and it is full of the most amazing topiary I have ever seen. Lots of billowy cloudy shapes, lollipops and spirals.
There are even rows of tall 'soldiers' which really made us feel as if we weren't alone...
A walk towards to the chapel allowed us to peer right over the cliff to the Dordogne below.
After a stop to play on the see saw on the esplanade we carried on past the Waterwalls through into the forest, where we saw the most unusual sculpture. Ever.
At the peak of the forest/cliff was a poet's hut where we huddled out of the rain in for a while.
Even the paths were imaginative!
A great, magical, mysterious garden that I can highly recommend. Made all the better for finding it by accident! The website could be a bit better, but you get the idea http://www.marqueyssac.com/index1.html
