Chris, here is a site about gardens to visit in Dordogne.
http://www.northofthedordogne.com/gardens.php I've been to Eryrignac (quite formal, a lot of clipped hedges, white rose garden, not far from Sarlat), Marqueyssac (more topiary, lovely woodland walk with great views of the Dordogne river, but not really flower beds), Les Jardins de Sardy (long way from Sarlat, but I liked it, more like a proper garden), les Jardins Tranquille near Brantome ( I knew the previous owner who gave me a lot of plants, haven't been since it changed hands, was the most English in style). There are others on that site. The village of Roque Gageac is worth a trip, pretty.
