Hautefort (Occitan Autafòrt) is a commune in the Dordogne department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine in southwestern France.

It was part of the former province of Périgord.

History[edit]

The ancient fortress dates back to the early Middle Ages, as proved by the first document quoting its existence as early as 987. A house of Gouffier de Lastours, who won fame during the First Crusade, the castle then became the seigneurial home of the troubadour Bertran de Born, who was viscount of Hautefort.
