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.
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.
