Castle of Hautefort

Château de Hautefort, experience the beauty!

Welcome to Château de Hautefort

Set on a rocky outcrop, the castle of Hautefort is an ancient medieval fortress transformed in the 17th century by the marquis of the same name into a pleasure dwelling.

Embellished by the addition of a French garden and landscaped park in the 19th century, this unique Périgord site combines the splendor of nature and the majesty of architecture, with a culture of refinement handed down through the ages.

A place steeped in history, preserved and restored by its various owners for over a thousand years, it can still be visited today. It is the fruit of a family's strong commitment to one value: beauty.

Château de Hautefort is the story of a passion: bought in the first quarter of the 20th century by Baron and Baroness Henry de Bastard, it was restored with care and dedication. After the main building was destroyed by fire in 1968, the baroness, now a widow, worked tenaciously to bring about a second restoration, in conjunction with her family, the public and the support of local authorities and the French Ministry of Culture.

The Fondation du château de Hautefort, created in 1984 and recognized as a public utility in 1990, has helped to guarantee the long-term future of the estate, ensure its management, and share its beauty with as many people as possible.

Through everyone's commitment, the Château de Hautefort bears witness to the public's generosity and love for its heritage. The singular and collective history of Hautefort continues today in a thousand ways: hosting film shoots, themed guided tours, an experimental vegetable garden, workshops on biodiversity and sustainable management that have earned it the first ecolabel awarded to a cultural site. At Hautefort , beauty is lived in, visited and experienced loud and clear.
