CHÂTEAU DE HAUTEFORT
Have you guys seen the 1998 movie ‘Ever After: A Cinderella Story’ with Drew Barrymore? It was filmed in the Dordogne region of France, including this and another chateau. Chateau de Hautefort stands on the position of an earlier 12th century chateau, and this one was built in the middle of the 17th century.
I toured it inside and out, and loved it! It overlooks the Auvezere Valley and Hautefort Village, and it is surrounded by impressive French style formal gardens. Not only is it listed as a historical monument, it is one of the most prestigious chateaux in the South West of France. If you are ever travelling France by car, I suggest you stop by and visit them. About a decade ago, I had visited Chateau Chenonceau, and on this trip I was happy that I got to see three more. They are definitely worth a visit, yet keep in mind that it takes 2-3 hours to tour them around.
