Jardin Exotique de la Roque Gageac

A stunning garden in the heart of Périgord Noir

Welcome to the exotic garden of La Roque Gageac

An exotic garden in Périgord? Well, yes, it's possible. This surprising garden, where palm trees, banana trees, bougainvilleas, orange trees, pomegranate trees, lemon trees and oleanders come together, flourishes thanks to its special location.

That's right, la Roque Gageac is a village nestled between a cliff that acts as a natural solarium and the Dordogne River, all facing south-west. These 3 ingredients combine to give the village a micro-climate where a particular gentleness reigns: at night, the rocks of the cliff restore the heat stored during the day, the well-drained soil prevents excess humidity and the river below regulates the hygrometry.

Just outside the village, Gérard Dorin, a passionate gardener who passed away in 2014, took on the challenge of creating this exotic garden.

The garden is open to visitors free of charge all year round.Here, you'll follow a path through the various tree species, come across a charming little chapel and end up with a magnificent panoramic view of the Dordogne river and the village.
