We have created a lovely private town house from which you can stroll to the gourmet restaurants in Sarlat. Most restaurants are within a genuine 5-10 minute walk of the house, which means you can enjoy a few glasses of wine with your meals out without having to worry about driving (taxis tend to be very expensive here in France). There is a boulangerie for your morning croissants and baguettes, with a lovely little deli next door just a short 3 minute stroll away from the house.
Sarlat is a small town of exceptional beauty with its narrow winding streets, stone roofs and Benedictine Abbey. You will be mesmerized by over 1000 years of art and architecture at every turn, all accessible within 5 minutes on foot from your Sarlat holiday home. And the beauty of our location is that you can sit in the garden enjoying the pool or having your lunch and it's peaceful enough to hear the birds sing.
Please be wary of listings that claim to be in Sarlat or 5 or 10 minutes from Sarlat. This often refers to driving time. We are a genuine 5 minute walk to the medieval center. We've heard countless stories from holidaymakers believing they were coming to stay in Sarlat but have had to travel miles to get anywhere.
You can visit the colorful farmer's market and food hall, or indulge in French cafe culture and watch the world pass by. Sarlat has many free attractions throughout the year around including a Christmas market and outdoor ice rink for the festive period, art exhibitions and during the summer months especially, there are constant evening street performers, open air theatre, music festivals, fireworks, acrobats, musicians, clowns providing nightly shows for your entertainment. After a day spent messing about on the river, visiting caves or chateaux, why not sit on the terrace with a glass of wine and watch the locals play Petanque, or even have a go yourself, there is a set of boules in the house for your use.
There really is something for everyone here in Sarlat, right on your doorstep...
