CHÂTEAU DE HAUTEFORT
Have you 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 château.
Château 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 château 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 traveling through France by car, I suggest you stop by and visit this château.
About a decade ago, I visited Château Chenonceau, and on this trip, I was happy to see a few more. They are definitely worth a visit, and take 2-3 hours to tour them around.
